Alzheimer's Care for Seniors in Carlisle, PA and Surrounding Areas

Visiting Angels offers dependable in-home Alzheimer’s care services for seniors in Carlisle, Gettysburg, Chambersburg and surrounding communities in Pennsylvania

Seniors struggling with Alzheimer’s disease, especially those in the late stages of the illness, often require high levels of care and support in order to maintain their well-being and safety.

Most families prefer to care for their own during the early and mid-stages of Alzheimer’s. However, as the condition progresses, it becomes increasingly difficult, even overwhelming, to care for a loved one with Alzheimer’s without some type of professional support. This is usually the time when families start considering Alzheimer’s care solutions for their aging parents or relatives.

One option is to place Mom or Dad in an assisted living facility, but those with cognitive decline may not fare well with major changes. To make matters worse, relocation to facilitated care can cause much discomfort and trigger the symptoms of Alzheimer’s, quickening its progression.

On the other hand, working with a reliable care agency that can provide specialized memory care services at home like Visiting Angels Carlisle is a far better solution. Your loved one can receive expert care uniquely tailored to their needs and remain in the familiar settings of their home, catered by our trained professionals.
