How to Get Started with Home Health Care Services from Visiting Angels Annapolis
Deciding to get professional in-home senior care for your loved one is the best decision that you will ever make. But if you've never had to arrange care for an elderly adult, how do you know how to get started? What questions should you ask? How much will it cost?
To get the best in-home care for your loved one, it is important that you know what it is all about. Thus, setting up an initial meeting with a care coordinator from Visiting Angels Annapolis is necessary. We've made the process of beginning home health care services for families in Annapolis, Millersville, Glen Burnie, Pasadena, Arnold and throughout Anne Arundel County simple and stress-free since 2002.
The Initial Consultation
During the meeting, we will discuss the home health care services your loved one needs, their preferred schedule and any other special requests you have. This is also the best time to ask questions to our coordinators to know about our extensive selection of customizable care plans.
This also gives our team the opportunity to get to know you so that we can match your loved ones with the right caregiver. We understand that looking for a caregiver is not something that our clients do so we do our best to properly educate everyone before we introduce our services to them.
How Can I Prepare Ahead of Time for the Consultation?
During the first meeting with Visiting Angels Annapolis, it is important that you ask questions and know the level of in-home care your loved one needs. It is not enough for you to let our coordinators explain what home health care services we can provide. We understand that all of our clients have special concerns, so it is best that you ask our care coordinators the right questions and explain the situation your loved one is currently facing.
By working together with our care coordinators, we can create a care plan that's uniquely tailored to include the home health care services your loved one truly needs. Although you can be assured that we provide exceptional in-home senior care, we always encourage our clients to make due diligence before they get started with in-home care.
Below are some topics we typically discuss during initial meetings:
- What are the specific physical needs of your loved one regarding grooming, bathing, feeding and mobility?
- Does your loved one require support for their emotional needs such as social interaction, companionship and conversation?
- Does your loved one need assistance with laundry, light housekeeping, meal preparation and groceries?
- What schedule would work best for your loved one?
- When should we schedule a nurse visit and a meeting with some qualified caregivers?
What If I Live Outside of Anne Arundel County?
It's common for families and elderly loved ones to live in different parts of the state or even different parts of the country. If you don't live within the Annapolis area, rest assured that we can still include you in the initial consultation. Visiting Angels Annapolis offers long-distance solutions so you can make sure your loved one gets the care they need, even if you can't attend the meeting in person.
