What Happens During Our Initial Consultation
When you call our Appleton office to discuss elder care services, we’ll start by scheduling a friendly fact-finding meeting. At this meeting, we’ll discuss your wishes, your loved one’s needs, and explain our many non-medical elder care services. Some of the topics we covered will include:
- Bathing and personal hygiene
- Physical activities
- Diet/food allergies
- Housekeeping assistance
- Running errands
- Preparing meals
- Social engagements
- Doctors’ appointments
- Handling schedule changes
- Transportation to appointments
- Access to home for caregiver
After Our Consultation
After meeting, we will create an elder care services plan specifically designed to meet your loved one’s needs. Because this plan was built from the detailed information gathered during our consultation, the plan is easily adapted as your loved one’s needs change.
Our Elder Care Services Caregivers
All caregivers from our Appleton office undergo a round of employment, background, and criminal history checks. Candidates are also screened on soft skills such as patience, humor, respect and a positive attitude. They must show that these traits are a natural part of their personalities in order to become a caregiver.
At Visiting Angels Appleton, we understand that it can be strange inviting a stranger into your home. That’s why we have developed a successful process to make this transition much more comfortable for everyone. We arrange interviews with several elder care services professionals right in your loved one’s home so you can confidently choose the most compatible caregiver.
