How to Get Started with At-Home Care Assistance in Bradenton, FL

At Visiting Angels, we strive to make the process of arranging at-home care assistance for families in Bradenton, Longboat Key, Palmetto and the surrounding areas in Florida as simple and stress-free as possible

If you have noticed that your loved one can no longer take proper care of themselves, Visiting Angels can help them continue aging in place and maintain their independence for as long as possible. We understand that many families don't know the first step when it comes to arranging professional elderly care at home for a loved one. With us, getting started with senior care is easy.

How Do I Get Started with At-Home Care Assistance from Visiting Angels Bradenton?

The first step is to get in touch with our office in Bradenton, FL. As we provide personalized care referrals to our clients, we will schedule a meeting with you where your family will meet one of our professional care coordinators. The purpose of this meeting is to get to know your loved one's needs and answer any questions you may have about in-home senior care from Visiting Angels, including costs, scheduling, our network of independent care providers and many other topics.

The meeting includes a comprehensive review of the at-home care assistance needed, schedule requests, any specific requests your loved one may have and other important issues. While discussing your loved one's care, we encourage you to ask us any questions. We also want you to get to know us and our mission and values. And if you feel overwhelmed at any point, we will gladly make recommendations based on our experience in the senior care industry.

What Will My Care Assessment Include?

Let us take a look at the topics that are commonly discussed at the initial meeting:

  • The specific physical needs of your loved one in terms of bathing, grooming, dressing, diet and meal preparation, mobility, and incontinence.
  • Your loved one's daily schedule, including when they go to sleep, when they have their meals, and when they take their medications.
  • Your loved one's emotional needs, including activities they like, topics that interest them, social interaction, appointments, companionship, and more.
  • Specific assistance with homemaking tasks, including meal preparation, grocery shopping, laundry, light housekeeping, and more.
  • Details regarding documentation, access to your loved one's home, scheduling changes, and more.

After discussing all these points, you will decide whether you wish to proceed with at-home care assistance. If you are satisfied with everything you talked about with our care coordinator, they will establish a schedule of care, create a care plan and refer you to the most compatible caregiver.

We are committed to doing everything possible to make it easier for our clients to start with our senior care solutions. We will help you throughout the entire process and be there to provide you with all the information you need to reach the best decision for your loved one.
