Choosing the right caregiver for your loved one and getting started with home care can be stressful. However, with Visiting Angels Carlisle, this process couldn’t be simpler. If your loved one could benefit from our professional in-home care services, contact us, schedule an initial meeting and we will take it from there.

How Visiting Angels Carlisle Can Help You Arrange Professional Elderly Care Services

Our care coordinator will come to your parent’s home where they will learn about their care needs, preferences, goals, likes, dislikes, abilities and limitations. During this meeting, our care representative will also review schedule requests, other specific requests of family or client and answer any of the questions you might have.

We understand that starting with professional in-home senior care can be overwhelming and that you might not be certain what type of care your parent requires. Since we have worked with thousands of families, we are able to make recommendations and help you make the right choice.

Care Starts with a Comprehensive Assessment & Custom Care Plan

When we come to your parent’s home for the first time, we will discuss whether your loved one has any specific physical needs regarding:

  • Bathing and grooming
  • Dressing
  • Meals and diet
  • Mobility
  • Incontinence

During this meeting, we will review their schedules involving sleep, eating and medicine, so we can create a care plan that doesn’t disrupt their daily routines. We can also discuss specific emotional needs your loved one may have, such as social interaction, activities, conversation, appointments and companionship. In order to prepare for the in-home consultation, make a list of daily activities your parent needs assistance with, such as preparation of meals, groceries, linens, laundry and light housekeeping. You can expect that we will also discuss the logistics of schedules as well as documentation.

If you decide to start with elderly care services from Visiting Angels Carlisle, we will establish a schedule, finalize the care plan, schedule a nurse visit and arrange a meeting with our caregivers. However, keep in mind that our care plans are not set in stone, and as your parent’s needs change, so can our plans be altered. This way we will ensure that your loved one is always receiving the right level of care.

Our elderly care services can significantly improve your loved one’s quality of life, so give us a call. Contact our Carlisle office or our drop sites in Gettysburg and Chambersburg and get in touch with our compassionate staff members. You are just one phone call away from ensuring your parent’s happiness, well-being and safety!
