How to Get Started with Home Health Care Services from Visiting Angels Annapolis

At Visiting Angels, we can help families set up home health care services so seniors in Annapolis, Millersville, Glen Burnie, Pasadena, Arnold and surrounding MD communities can safely and comfortably age in place

Deciding to get professional in-home senior care for your loved one in Annapolis, MD 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 Visiting Angels care coordinator is necessary.

The Initial Meeting

During the meeting, discussion over the home health care services required, schedule of care, special requests, and other concerns will be discussed. This is also the best time to ask questions to our coordinators to know about our extensive selection of customizable care plans. It is also the best time for us 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.

Ask the Right Questions About Home Health Care Services

During the first meeting, it is important that you ask questions. It is not enough for you to let our coordinators do a monologue of what we can provide. We understand that all of our clients have special concerns, so it is best that you ask them the right questions. Below are some questions that we typically receive:

  • What are the specific physical needs of our loved ones regarding grooming, bathing, feeding and mobility?
  • Can caregivers provide with the emotional needs of our loved one such as social interaction, companionship and conversation?
  • Can they also provide assistance with laundry, light housekeeping, meal preparation and groceries?
  • What if there is a change in our schedule and we need a caregiver to work for us in a completely new schedule?
  • Can you establish a care plan or schedule a nurse visit soon?

By asking the right questions, you will be able to have a clear idea of what we can provide to you. Although you can be assured that we provide exceptional home health care services, we always encourage our clients to make due diligence before they get started with in-home care.
