About Us

Martha’s Hands Home Care Services has been in existence since 1997 and over the years it has done a considerable amount to assist people with their daily activities so they can remain independent in their home.

Elileen Hedrick is the founder of Martha’s Hands Home Care Services. She is a Registered Nurse and BSHA. She worked at a variety of care settings before starting the business.

“The assistance would be with hands on care help from getting up, to getting bathed, dressed, different personal care, assistance with and preparation of medication reminders, household support type of care, housekeeping, laundry, errand running and grocery shopping,” she said. “We also assist with specific care needs depending on each client’s situation.”
 
Other areas Hedrick’s organization gets involved with are setting up and working with an exercise program for clients, or helping them recover from a stroke, or also cases of dementia, Alzheimer’s Disease.”
 
Since its beginning in 1997, Martha’s Hands has provided care for more than 4,000 clients and just provided its 3 millionth hour of service this past year.
 
“A lot of people who love to live in their home and/or with their family and we can help with providing the care necessary to stay independent. That is what we do,” Hedrick said. “Everybody would like to stay in their home and be as independent as possible in their community. If they stay there, they tend to have a higher quality of life.”
 
The website provides a wide variety of possibilities of how Martha’s Hands could care for a loved one.
 
“What makes Martha’s Hands unique or we attribute our success to is we provide compassion and excellence in home care,” Hedrick said. “We provide compassion and excellence in home care. It is a mission-based company.”
 
Hedrick had it written in the mission statement from the very beginning that it would provide a care that is a service to God’s children, which comes from the Sister’s of Mercy.
 
“Excellence comes from the model of care we provide,” Hedrick said. “We have a nurse case manager who meets with the client to do a consultation to understand what the client’s care and needs are. Skilled nursing can develop a customized service plan and makes sure they are overseeing the plan of the client and has the ability to interact with the client’s doctors or other health care providers on a professional level.”

Home Care Services

Our goal is to provide you with personalized, mission-based, care services; allowing you to remain independent in your home. One of our Nurse Care Managers will meet with the client and family for an initial consultation. During the Assessment, they will get a better understanding of the client’s abilities, challenges along with care requests. The family can feel free to ask questions in order to better understand the care options available.

Based on this Assessment, our Nurse Care Manager will develop a service plan that is customized to the client’s specific needs and requests.The written service plan will indicate the tasks that our caregivers will need to perform and the skills they will need. This plan assists us in carefully matching a client’s needs with a caregiver’s abilities.

While each care situation is unique , below is a sample of the types of care services we provide. Please ask the nurse for specific care requests.

Again, this is just a basic list of services. Please coordinate with our Nurse Care Manager to customize the service plan that meets your needs. As needs change, our Nurse Care Manager will continue to refine the service plan to meet your needs and assist you along life's journey.
