There are a few simple steps to getting started with Visiting Angels Athens.  First, the pre-care consultation in which we will lay the foundation for our relationship and draft a customized home care assistance plan for your loved one. Next, based on the information you provide, we will choose the caregiver we feel is the best fit for your loved one's needs and schedule. At all times, we'll keep open lines of communication with you and regularly monitor the care we provide. We want you to have complete confidence in our home care assistance services. This professionalism and dedication to quality care has made us a trusted source for home care assistance in Athens, Bethlehem, North High Shoals, Watkinsville and Good Hope, GA.

Your Home Care Assistance Consultation 

At Visiting Angels Athens, the first step to establishing care for your loved one is the pre-care consultation. During this meeting, we will discuss services to be provided, schedules, associated costs, logistics, and all other aspects of care. Our consultations carry no cost or obligation.

Some of the topics we commonly cover in pre-care consultations:

  • Physical needs regarding mobility, transferring, hygiene and grooming
  • Dietary needs and restrictions
  • Emotional needs (conversation, activities)
  • Home access for the caregiver
  • Schedules, routines and habits
  • Activities of daily living your loved one needs assistance with
  • Caregiver preferences
  • A schedule of caregiver visits including frequency and duration

After the pre-care consultation, we take the information discussed and use it to create a custom home care assistance plan for your loved one. Our home care assistance plans can be adjusted and updated as your loved one's needs change.

At this time, we'll also match your loved one with a caregiver from our Athens team. Caregiver matches are made based on your loved one's needs and scheduling requirements. If for any reason, the caregiver match isn't a good one, let us know. We'll help your loved one transition to a new caregiver to ensure your loved one's comfort and effective care.
