Caring for an elderly parent or grandparent can be overwhelming, especially if you've been trying to do it all on your own, or from a distance. Having professional in-home care can help to bridge the gap and ease the burden for you, the family, and your loved one. Whether you feel they could use a bit of extra help around the house, or intense, long-term care, Visiting Angels® Birmingham can help you get the care that's right for your situation. We'll start by talking with you, so we can understand your unique circumstances. Then we'll work with your loved one and the family to build a custom plan of care and choose a caregiver that's right for your situation, bringing both essential assistance and genuine joy to their home. 

Share Your Concerns in Your In-Home Care Consultation

At Visiting Angels Birmingham, you'll be able to sit down with our Director of Care and have the chance to find out everything you want to know about our home care services and how they could benefit your loved one. It's also the perfect time for you to talk with a knowledgeable professional about your loved one's condition and your goals for their care. 

Some topics you may want to go over during your initial consultation include: 

  • Your loved one's physical needs, medications they're taking, and whether they require one-on-one care
  • Your relative's emotional needs and whether they might benefit from additional companionship
  • Your loved one's personality, interests, hobbies, and what kind of caregiver you feel would suit them best 
  • The logistics of home access, scheduling, documentation, emergency contacts, and other pertinent details
  • Any questions you have about in-home care, our agency's policies, procedures, or caregiving philosophy
