Private Duty Home Care Services for Seniors in Bethesda, MD and Surrounding Areas
Many independent seniors prefer to stay at home instead of living in a nursing care facility. The thing is, they enjoy the familiarity that their home provides. Moving to an unfamiliar setting, especially for seniors with dementia or other memory-related issues, can be a shocking and unsettling event. In fact, most elderly people who are relocated to a senior care facility end up feeling distressed and lonely.
If you and your loved one have decided that living at home is the best option for them, then you need to make sure that they get the help necessary especially if their strengths are already waning. Becoming a family caregiver can help your loved one receive the care they need from someone they know and trust; however, this can be a huge and stressful responsibility, especially if you're unfamiliar with providing care for an older adult.
That's why Visiting Angels of Bethesda provides professional private duty home care services. Our goal is to help seniors continue living at home for as long as they wish by providing assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs) in order to make living safely and comfortably at home a reality.
