Helping Hands Elder Care is a licensed, Homemaker Companion agency committed to providing compassionate, caring, dedicated and honest caregivers to meet the needs of the Melbourne, Palm Bay and South Brevard county area. If you've been researching senior care you have certainly come across references to assisted living, nursing homes, retirement communities and other senior housing options. With the wide variety of choices at your disposal you undoubtedly have lots of questions. How can we be assured of our loved ones safety? How can we be sure they're eating properly and regularly? How can we assist them in maintaining the quality of life that they deserve? As well as many others. Our goal at Helping Hands is to allow your loved ones to stay in the peace and comfort of their own home for as long as possible while continuing to enjoy the life they've created for themselves. To that end Helping Hands will provide the best caregivers to meet all their non-medical needs. All caregivers undergo medical and criminal background checks, extensive interviews and reference checks before ever being referred to your home. In addition all our employees are bonded and insured. We are committed to helping you develop a strategy that best suits your loved ones needs. We'll develop a plan of care suited specifically for your loved one and then find the best people to assist you in creating a safe, healthy, and caring environment for those you love. We offer several types of services which can be used individually or in tandem to help meet the changing needs of the family and their love ones.
If your loved one is still relatively self sufficient but you have cause for concern,
this option is best for you. Perhaps you've noticed meals are being skipped or the
home isn't as clean and organized as it once was. Maybe you're beginning to see some
memory failure or personal hygiene issues. These are key signs that your loved one may
need some help. For this type of situation a few hours a day throughout the week
would give you the peace of mind that they are getting the assistance they need to
continue living at a high level. Helping Hands will refer a caregiver with the
scheduling flexibility and expertise to accommodate your needs and keep you
aware of any changes or concerns as they may arise.

caregiver, Helping Hands will step in to give them some rest. Whether
it be a break for a much needed vacation, a short rest to recharge your batteries or
just a few hours to have lunch with a friend, Helping Hands can assist you. It's
important that the caregiver knows it's okay to take a break. You need to be at you
best, to give them your best.
