In-Home Care Services for Veterans in Asheville, NC

In-Home Care Services for Veterans in Asheville, NC

At Visiting Angels, we firmly believe in the importance of honoring our nation's veterans for their service in defending the country. Given the rigors of military service, every veteran has made sacrifices to uphold essential values and protect civilians around the globe. In doing so, they have earned the right to receive the highest-quality home care in their golden years. Many also live with distinct needs that require the deepest empathy and a personalized touch.

Our approach to home care offers exactly those qualities and more. We specialize in a compassionate form of in-home care precisely tailored to meet the specific needs of seniors, including veterans living in and around Asheville, North Carolina.

Understanding the Unique Care Needs of Veterans

Veterans may have unique care needs stemming from their service to the country. However, many veterans live with common health concerns, such as:

  • Trauma.
  • Anxiety.
  • Depression.
  • Physical injuries.
  • Hearing loss.
  • Vision problems.
  • Chronic health conditions.

To offer the kind of care that a particular veteran needs, we go beyond generalized health concerns to understand their specific circumstances, as their health and care requirements arise from their individual experiences. For example, a veteran who was exposed to certain chemical substances during their service may live with respiratory challenges or a more severe health complication that calls for special considerations in their care plan. Every care client is unique, and the specific nature of a veteran's service affects the kind of support necessary to help them enjoy a higher quality of life.

Ready-Set-Go Home

Returning home after an extended inpatient stay may present certain challenges to seniors, as their medications and physical condition increase their susceptibility to readmission because of falls or other accidents. Our Ready-Set-Go Home program helps prevent these occurrences with a three-pronged approach that begins in the hospital, transitions to the home, and extends to behind-the-scenes coordination.

Respite Care

Family caregivers also make a tremendous sacrifice by being present for their loved ones in need. If you're responsible for a veteran's care, our respite care service can provide you with well-deserved time to rest and fulfill your other obligations to family, friends, and self.

  • Client monitoring.
  • Wandering prevention.
  • Fall prevention and safety.
  • Task reminders.
  • Emotional support and management.
  • Mobility and transfers.

Customized Care Plans for Veterans

With every family we work with, the relationship begins with a complimentary consultation in which we aim to understand the client's lifestyle, living situation, care requirements, and preferences. Everything we learn about the individual goes toward crafting a care plan that is entirely personalized to them. The services they receive, the caregiver they work with, and the frequency of our visits are all dependent on their needs and wishes.

Every client's care plan remains customizable throughout our relationship. Should your loved one's situation change, you can adjust your services and visitation frequency to meet the evolving circumstances. At Visiting Angels, personalization and customizability allow us to engage with our clients on an individual level and provide them with exactly what they need to live securely and comfortably at home.
