Caring for an aging parent or loved one is not always easy. While you want to be there to give mom the care and support she’s given you throughout your life, providing this care while balancing family time, paid work, and other commitments can be exhausting. If you’re feeling stressed and overwhelmed while providing care to an aging loved one, companion care services from Visiting Angels® Amarillo can help.

How Companion Care in Amarillo Helps

When you’re the primary caregiver for an aging loved one, it can be easy to sacrifice your own health and happiness while trying to maintain these qualities in your loved one. You may be skipping out on exercise, healthy eating, and sleep just to keep up. While these sacrifices may be an okay solution in the short term, without a break, caring for your loved one can leave you too ill, too exhausted, and too overwhelmed to offer the quality of care your loved one deserves.

Our care is a great way to make sure your loved one gets the care they need while you have an opportunity to rest and recharge. At Visiting Angles Amarillo, our companion care services can be scheduled on an as-needed basis, making it easy for our caregivers to step in when you need an extra hand or an afternoon off. 

With our personalized approach to care, we can offer services designed to fit within the preexisting schedules and routines you and your loved one have created. Rather than overshadowing your role as primary caregiver, we can complement the care you provide and fill in gaps in care as needed. Some of the services Visiting Angels Amarillo can offer to you and your loved one include:

  • Transportation to appointments and events
  • Assistance with errand running and grocery shopping
  • Nutritious meal planning and preparation
  • Vacuuming, laundry, and other light housekeeping duties
  • Emotional support and joyful companionship to your loved one

Our caregivers can provide companion care to your loved one in the Amarillo, TX area during the day as well as on weekends, in the evenings, and overnight. This way, your loved one will always have the services they need while you receive respite when you need it most.
