Alzheimer’s Elderly Home Care Throughout Augusta, GA and Neighboring Communities

Visiting Angels Provides Alzheimer’s Elderly Home Care That Can Keep Your Loved One Comfortable and Independent for Longer in Augusta, Evans, and Surrounding Areas

Years ago, it was true that few health services could meet the needs of individuals diagnosed with Alzheimer’s other than live-in facilities with costly, stressful around-the-clock nursing. Today, Visiting Angels of Augusta is at the forefront of Alzheimer's care services that can help seniors stay safe, happy, and healthy in their own homes for longer. At Visiting Angels of Augusta, we know your number one priority is your loved one’s health and well-being, and we are here to partner with you in providing for their needs.

More than five million Americans have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. Your loved one will need a support network of family, friends, community services, and medical care providers to contribute to their well-being. The elderly home care services from Visiting Angels of Augusta are designed to support the changes in physical, mental, emotional, and social health that will occur as Alzheimer’s progress.

Early Stages of Alzheimer’s

In the early stages of Alzheimer’s, memory loss might be noticeable, but not disruptive to your loved one’s life. Your loved one may struggle to remember a recipe or keep track of monthly bills. Your elderly home care services might include:

  • Medication reminders and daily schedule setting
  • Meal planning and preparation
  • Transportation to doctor’s appointments

  • Companionship care seven days a week
  • Emotional support services
  • Mobility device assistance
  • Daily updates to a family member to report on health and wellness
  • Light housekeeping, laundry, and linens changing
