How Our Home Health Care Providers Help Seniors in Annapolis, MD and Surrounding Areas Manage Chronic Conditions

Experienced home health care providers from Visiting Angels make it easier for aging adults in Annapolis, Millersville, Pasadena, Arnold, Glen Burnie and surrounding areas in Maryland to properly manage chronic illnesses at home

When a senior loved one is diagnosed with an age-related chronic illness, enabling them to continue living independently at home may not be as simple as you thought. On the other hand, moving them to an assisted living facility is not the best option because they can easily remain at home and receive exceptional care from caregivers trained to work with such clients. At Visiting Angels Annapolis, our home care providers are committed to helping seniors throughout Northern Anne Arundel County manage their chronic conditions so they can continue to remain at home for as long as they wish.

What Are Chronic Illnesses?

A chronic illness is any illness that lasts for a long period of time and is usually not curable. Most of these conditions put a strain on the patient’s quality of life and make day-to-day functioning far more challenging. Arthritis, asthma, respiratory illnesses, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and osteoporosis are some examples of chronic illnesses commonly seen in aging adults.

Unfortunately, when seniors develop a chronic illness, oftentimes the care they receive from a family caregiver is no longer sufficient for them to continue living independently at home. At Visiting Angels Annapolis, our knowledgeable home health care providers have the skills and the experience to help your Mom or Dad manage their chronic illness as best as they can.
