Care for Chronic Medical Conditions

Did you know most home care companies have people with little to no medical training complete your assessment and care plan?

As we saw the need for in-home care for multiple chronic conditions grow over time, it also became apparent that the home care industry was ill-equipped to meet those demands. In answer to the growing need for specialty care for people wanting to remain at home, Helping Hand developed our Nurse Guided Home CareSM program.

To properly manage medical conditions, a Registered Nurse will perform a complimentary nursing assessment and develop a care plan. Exclusive to Helping Hand, our Registered Nurses oversee the specialized care and support for specific chronic or end-of-life medical conditions, including Parkinson’s, cancer care, Alzheimer’s, stroke recovery, cardiac, and dementia care.

As the only home care services organization to provide both medical and non-medical care, Helping Hand is uniquely qualified to handle all of your chronic medical needs.

It’s Simple to Get Started – Watch One Daughter’s Story

If you have ever struggled with life decisions for a senior loved one, then you may understand the emotional impact of someone having to leave their home and give up their independence.

Watch one daughter’s story of the emotional weight that was lifted when she found a trustworthy care alternative in Helping Hand. It was simple and easy to get started. Once our highly-trained nurses completed her mother’s initial Free Home Care Assessment and devised a thorough and complete care plan, her mother was able to stay in her home, manage her day-to-day life, and be near things familiar.

  • 5 star review  Adeline is very compassionate and helpful she gets along very well with my dad and the rest of the family

    thumb Charles Cameron

    5 star review  Our caregiver Eldeena is fantastic. It is a great relief to have her help me take care of my husband.

    thumb Diane Hamburger

    5 star review  I appreciate your super care of my husband since September 2022. I especially want to mention the care that Taleasha has been giving Ron five days a week. She quickly learned our routines and provides personal assistance to him and help with related chores without being told to do so. She shows concern for his well-being even when he has had another stay in the hospital. We could not ask for any better helper in our house.

    thumb Carol Radden
  • 5 star review  I am so thankful that Helping Hands was recommended to me to help with the care of my Mother. I have been taking care of her for the past two years, but her care has become more than I am able to handle. It is hard to give up control, so I was also hesitant to let someone else handle her care. Helping Hands has been an absolute Godsend. Lynnette and Jocelyn are so kind and caring, and they treat my Mother like their own family. You can tell that they love their jobs! I have a peace when I leave my Mother that I know she is being so well taken care of, and I can focus on my other responsibilities without feeling guilt. They truly are the best at what they do!

    thumb Jen R

    5 star review  Helping Hand was there for our Father when he was failing in 2019. We had some wonderful caregivers for more than 2 years. Now our Mother is declining and Helping Hand was our first choice for additional care. There are new people there, but I was delighted to talk to some of the same staff we worked with in 2016! Through Helping Hand we have a lovely woman, Alma, who provides competent sensitive care, fits in well with the staff at Mom's residence, and works with us when we are there. Thank you Helping Hand! You have made this stage manageable.

    thumb GK Morrison

    5 star review  Awesome service provided for patients to be able to go home and receive nursing care from end of life to basic care to live out their lives at home. The compassion and care for each patient along with support to family's who are overwhelmed during the initial process of making decisions. The owner Marla personally gets involved to assure a smooth transition for the patient and the family. As a case manager I would recommend their services without a doubt the patients care and needs will come first.I have never had any negative feedback from family members but praise for their support and care of their loved ones.

  • 5 star review  Joan, we adore & appreciate you! You have taken amazing care of our Mom during her recovery and on behalf of my Mom & my 2 sisters we can’t thank you enough for the caring soul that you are. I know it’s only been 3 days, but you are like family now to us. Thank you so very much! 🙌🙌🙌❤️

    thumb Kathy Fishman

    5 star review  I have used Helping Hands many times with clients. The caregivers are so kind, knowledgeable and respectful.

    thumb Scharlene Paul

    5 star review  Highly recommended. I am familiar with one employee, whose name is Doris, who has been taking care of my elderly neighbor for quite some time. My neighbor has multiple health issues and Doris has always been there for her in more ways than one. And this is a difficult case, in my opinion. She is knowledgeable, compassionate and professional. She has made appropriate calls when the neighbor was taking turns for the worse. The family and patient trust her completely. The company has a diamond with Doris. I do not know any of the other caregivers with Helping Hand, but if all of their caregivers are like Doris, this is the only company to go with for your beloved family members care needs.

    thumb Kathy C.
  • 5 star review  Crystal Wagner is an exceptional care giver for my child. You guys are the greatest. Thank you

    thumb Brenda Nieves

    5 star review  I highly recommend helping hands nursing services. Veronica the staffing coordinator was always so pleasant and helpful with any staffing changes we requested. It took us some time to find the right caregiver who would be a good fit for my father in law until we found Justin. Justin Young was dependable and ALWAYS on time, had the training and skills required to handle my father in laws difficult behaviors associated with his dementia and he was always respectful towards my father in law. We knew my father in law was in good hands while Justin was there. We are very thankful for the help Justin has given us this past year!

    thumb Heather Cooper

    5 star review  I've been working at Helping Hand Nursing Services for close to two years and enjoy working with our office staff and caregivers. I wanted to be able to work with a company that cared about people and provided a service for them and the Lord brought me here to Helping Hand Nursing Services and I'm very appreciative of this company and it's owners.

    thumb Nelfa Laboy
  • 5 star review  Helping Hand Nursing Services has delivered amazing care for Central Florida seniors for almost 30 years. Owned and operated by the Gold family and their amazing staff. I was blessed to have spent time working there with them and for anyone needing quality homecare with medical focus to non medical care make sure to give them a call. They also can provide nurses to meet your families needs. They have outstanding caregivers and can truly help your family member Age in Place wherever they call home. Truly the best in homecare and providing it they way it should be. Thank you Gold family for setting the standard and the time I was blessed to spend with you all.

    thumb Kevin Curtin

    5 star review  Christa Parker is providing excellent care for my mother and father so they can continue to live independently. While caring for my parents is challenging, Christa has gone above and beyond. I highly recommend Helping Hands for any home health care services.

    thumb Dean Barone

    5 star review  Helping Hands not only came through in a pinch when my mom needed to be unexpectedly discharged from rehab but provided top notch caregivers! The agency coordinates care, gets detailed background information, and is extraordinarily responsive. My mom’s caregiver, Lydia, is on the spot with high energy and patience. She is fabulous with daily care and also fastidious with cleaning, anticipates my moms needs, and celebrates her accomplishments! I live in the northeast and I am so very pleased that my mom is literally in the hands of helpers. —Beth B

  • 5 star review  Our nurse was amazingly sweet, kind, soft spoken and very caring! She took great care of my mom, and we will miss her! Kudos to all the awesome nurses

    thumb Dana T

    5 star review  We needed 24/7 in-home care arranged. Helping Hand provided excellent, caring and reliable people, all of whom showed love and compassion for our family member. The office was available, communicative, and flexible; we very much appreciated that!

    thumb Way Koe

    5 star review  It is my pleasure to recommend this great team for any home health care support you may need for your loved one. My family and I were sitting with my brother around the clock in his last days of terminal illness. As you can imagine we were exhausted and needed clinical nursing support. The office staff were so kind and listened to our need. They scheduled the perfect caregiver to help us. Ms Willie Mae is the angel God sent to us and we will be forever grateful for Helping Hands. If you find yourself in need of extra support give them a call. You will be glad you did. 5 stars!

    thumb Lisa Wyatt
  • 5 star review  This is the second time in the last 10 years we have utilized the service of Helping Hands. Both experiences were more than satisfactory. The caregivers are professional but very caring and positive. Thank you Shae, Claire and most especially the very special Jennifer who is always smiling and wonderful.

    thumb Susan Conner

    5 star review  Helping hands could add kind hearts to their name. When a friend needed some in home assistance, helping hands gave him immediate attention and have so faithfully created a safe and happy environment for him to stay at home. It would not be an overstatement to say that the Helping Hands staff have been wonderfully life changing for my friend. Thank you so much.

    thumb Maryclaire Ison

    5 star review  Just a moment to recognize Audrey and her compassion, optimism and kindness she gave to our family. Thank you for your selfless service during those difficult times with my mother over the last few weeks. We couldnt have gotten through this without you. I recommend helping hands, especially the caretaker Audrey, to anyone who needs nursing care help. She was and is a blessing!!! Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts.

    thumb Tara Scoggins
  • 5 star review  My father was in need of 24 hour nursing and the rehabilitation center gave us a number of brochures of potential providers. After speaking to a number of agencies we decided to work with Helping Hand Nursing Services. It was the best decision we could have made. Working with Marla and Ann was wonderful. They helped us navigate a very tricky situation, and helped us get my father back into his home. Once home, we had the pleasure of working with three amazing caregivers. Marie in particular went above and beyond to care for my father. We discovered that there were problems in his house and needed to move him to a long term care facility. Instead of giving us a hard time about changing our arrangement, every single person worked outside of the box to help us. It was a very difficult and emotional time for us and the team at Helping Hand were compassionate throughout the whole ordeal. I wholeheartedly recommend their services and want to give a special thank you to Marie, Bobbie, Amanda, Marla, Ann and Justin for helping us through such a difficult time.

    thumb Kristin Scott

    5 star review  Thank you for your care with my father at the end of his life, more especially for your compassion and kindness to him and his sweetheart. Thank you for making hard times go smoothly.

    thumb Deborah Bailey

    5 star review  I have worked for Helping Hands for seven years. My job here has been very rewarding and I have had the pleasure of meeting several clients. I would also like to acknowledge my RN director, Marla Gold, she is always available to answer any questions or concerns. Further, we provide home health care services through RN'S, LPN'S, and CNA'S. We also provide 24/7 care if necessary and if you need to go in person to the office you will be greeted by a friendly and caring staff. I highly recommend helping hands for any home health care services.

    thumb Vicki Terrell
  • 5 star review  We were in a tight spot when my dad had a stroke and fell and needed to be hospitalized dand my mother with memory issues needed someone to stay with her overnight.. I was driving to Florida from PA and called Helping Hands. Marla was so sweet and helped me out by getting Jeannette to stay with my mom, until I could get there the next day. I would highly recomment this group if you are ever in need of personal care for a loved one. Thank you.

    thumb Beth Robbins

    5 star review  Thank you for the wonderful care you gave our son, John Paul during his stay at rehab.

    thumb Ron Drake

    5 star review  My 92 yr old neighbor has no local relatives, she fell broke her hip and pelvic bones. She spent 5 days in hospital. Due to covid 19 the rehabs were not taking new patients. I got a call from hospital to say she had signed herself out and was going home. This was Thanksgiving Week end. I needed help fast. Lucky to find Helping Hands and Marla. She took over immediately and called her people to start 24 hr. care. Thank you Marla and all your girls who are great.

    thumb Helen Hughes
  • 5 star review  Our Helping Hand caregiver, on her third night with our mom, saved her life. She is a CNA with good experience and instincts. When things went awry, she recognized the serious issue and took immediate action. She called us in the middle of the night and then stayed with us until help arrived, keeping everyone calm and even moving furniture for a clear stretcher path. As we rushed to the hospital, she stayed and put things back together so Mom's return will be to a comfortable, clean, orderly place. All of this goes so far beyond what we expected and we are so grateful. When Mom is ready to come home, Helping Hand is the first place we will call. We look forward to seeing this amazing caregiver again and also to meeting others who will be needed in addition. We trust Helping Hand to send us highly capable, kind caregivers.

    thumb Nancy

    5 star review  We had Helping Hands Senior services for two weeks following my spine surgery. My rating and recommendation are of the highest possible both from a care and a professional perspective. The staff, from the office personnel to the caregivers, were outstanding in every way. They were punctual, prepared and willing to perform their duties as requested and/or needed. On a scale of 1 to 10, I give them a 20!!

    thumb Richard McCauley

    5 star review  I have had a wonderful experience with helping hands, the staff is friendly and always provide great patient care. Helping Hands is very compassionate about the direct personal care the Elderly receives. All caregivers are uniquely picked to be compatible with your love one.
