A Message From the Owners

Assisting Hands OwnerThank you for taking the time to visit our website. We understand how difficult it can be for a family to trust a stranger with a loved one’s care – We have been there too. When my mother-in-law Pat was diagnosed with Dementia several years ago, it caught us off guard. Like many families, we were not fully prepared to deal with what was to follow. The physical, emotional and financial challenges we faced, while providing full-time care to a loved one, led to feelings of beingoverwhelmed. However, despite all the challenges we faced, taking care of an elderly loved ones was one of the most rewarding and satisfying experiences of our lives. We felt so strongly about the need for high quality home care that we left our professional careers and dedicated our lives to helping other families going through similar experiences. We started Assisting Hands of Carroll County with one goal in mind – To provide exceptional home care that enriches the lives of our clients and provides peace of mind to their families.

The Perfect Caregiver Match

Assisting Hands strongly believes in the significance of matching the ideal caregiver to provide top-notch care. Apart from expertise and training, we recognize that caregivers with compassionate hearts leave the most profound impact on the lives of our clients. When we choose a caregiver, we always ask ourselves one pivotal question: “Would we entrust them with the care of our own parents?” If the answer is a resounding yes, our clients can have peace of mind knowing their loved ones are in the most capable hands. Once your caregiver is selected, he or she will be able to assist with a range of essential tasks:


  • Helping with personal hygiene, including bathing, grooming, dressing, and incontinence care
  • Preparing meals and helping with grocery shopping
  • Taking care of light housekeeping duties, laundry, and changing bed sheets
  • Offering transportation for errands, medical appointments, and social events
  • Assisting with mobility, bed and wheelchair transfers, and toileting
  • Providing medication reminders and prescription pickup
  • Ensuring safety through monitoring and implementing fall prevention measures
  • Engaging in cognitive stimulation and offering emotional support
  • Providing companionship and fostering social interactions
  • Offering specialized care for individuals with Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s

"In our difficult time, Assisting Hands was the constant presence in my life to provide me with the emotional and physical support we so desperately needed. The staff was warm, kind and friendly. They treated my husband and I like family."

Star Review

"You had the perfect caregiver for my husband. I really mean perfect, he wouldn’t listen to me and I needed someone strong who would get him active and motivate him to do his PT. The caregiver didn’t just sit there he had a routine with him. He became stronger over the months with Assisting Hands. I appreciated the ease of dealing with both owners Jodee, Troy and caregivers. I was never once dissatisfied or worried that someone wouldn’t show up. I knew he was taken care of while I was at work."
