In-Home Care Services for Veterans in Hendersonville, NC

Defending the country is a sacrifice that deserves reward long after a veteran's service has ended. At Visiting Angels, we strive to give back to veterans with a range of home care services tailored to their exact needs and preferences. Emphasizing compassion for the individual, we've made it our mission to ensure that seniors in and around Hendersonville, North Carolina, have the support necessary to age in place at home with the best possible quality of life.

Understanding the Unique Care Needs of Veterans

Because military service is physically, mentally, and emotionally demanding, our country's veterans often live with health concerns that require higher levels of support. Studies have shown that military veterans statistically experience higher rates of physical and mental health conditions such as:

  • Diabetes.
  • Heart disease.
  • Stroke.
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
  • Cancer. 
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder.
  • Depression.
  • Substance dependence.

These health conditions can often stem from factors that are distinctive to the military experience, such as combat-related stress, physical or mental trauma, and the duty to maintain the required levels of physical fitness. To successfully deliver support, a caregiver must understand the special considerations associated with these concerns.

Veterans, though, are individuals, so effective in-home care requires a personalized approach and a personal touch. The caregiver must fully appreciate who their client is, particularly through the lens of the client's military service, to establish the understanding and bond that are essential to a healthy caregiving relationship.

Specialized In-Home Care Services for Veterans

Visiting Angels Asheville specializes in the type of individualized in-home care that veterans need to thrive as they age. We provide distinctive home care services that aim to benefit the elderly veteran in your life.

Personal Care

Personal care is an in-home solution for seniors experiencing changes in their mobility, vigor, vision, and other conditions that affect their ability to age safely in place at home. With Visiting Angels, your loved one's personal care provider delivers support in crucial areas of daily living, such as:

  • Hygiene.
  • Dressing.
  • Toileting.
  • Meal preparation.
  • Light housekeeping.
  • Mobility.
  • Medical schedules.
  • Errands.
  • Transportation to and from appointments and other engagements.

By participating in our personal care program, the veteran in your life can count on having a capable and compassionate caregiver at their side when needed. Our support can help your loved one maintain important routines, increase independence at home, and realize improved well-being while you and the rest of your family enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing that dependable assistance is at hand. 

Companion Care

Similar to personal care, the Visiting Angels' companion care program delivers essential support with daily activities and also provides broader support through the client's relationship with their caregiver. The goal is to enhance your loved one's mental and emotional well-being with a genuine human connection. Just having someone to speak with, listen to, and engage with can elevate day-to-day living and quality of life. 

Respite Care

A veteran's family members often fulfill an important service themselves — the selfless service of the family caregiver. It's an honorable and demanding role, and periodic breaks can make all the difference in preventing burnout. Visiting Angels' respite care is about providing those breaks so you and others in your family can rest and meet your other personal and social obligations. When you return to your caregiving duties, you can do so rejuvenated.

Ready-Set-Go Home

Ready-Set-Go Home is Visiting Angels program for transitional care, a form of in-home support for seniors moving out of an inpatient setting and back to their primary residence. The transition from one environment to the other can present certain challenges to a veteran who's aging in place at home, as it's common to feel weakened during recovery and disoriented under medication. Your loved one may run the risk of injury without precautions; Ready-Set-Go Home is designed to prepare them for this transition, risk-proof their home, and prevent readmission.

Dementia and Alzheimer's Care

If the veteran in your life is living with Alzheimer's disease or another form of dementia, we at Visiting Angels can provide them with the specialized support necessary to keep them safe at home. Both our dementia care and Alzheimer's care services offer invaluable care activities such as client monitoring, wandering prevention, fall prevention, task reminders, household organization, and emotional support, in addition to the essential assistance found in our personal and companion care programs. With us by your loved one's side, we can help them enjoy the utmost independence at home for as long as possible. 

Customized Care Plans for Veterans

Personalized and customized in-home care is the specialty at Visiting Angels of Asheville. When you reach out to us, we initiate our relationship with a free consultation in which we acquaint ourselves with your loved one's lifestyle, living situation, care needs, and support preferences. The idea is to understand who they are as an individual so we can tailor our service precisely to them. 

We understand that your loved one's needs may change over time, so they can adjust the specifics of their care whenever they wish. That way, the support we deliver remains relevant and effective. 

Benefits and Resources for Veteran Care

As a veteran, your loved one has access to resources provided by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). All enrolled veterans who are eligible for community care and meet certain criteria are eligible for VA Home Health Aide Care, which covers services that provide help with daily activities such as eating, dressing, grooming, bathing, toileting, and grocery shopping. We encourage you to reach out to a VA representative to learn more about the program's requirements and coverage.
