Here’s how our in-home care providers help seniors with chronic conditions in Carlisle, Gettysburg and Chambersburg, PA manage their symptoms at home and increase the number of “good days”

Seniors who are living with chronic illnesses may need some additional support in order to live at home. Although seniors greatly value their independence, some conditions can cause mobility and cognitive issues that make essential everyday tasks difficult.

That’s why at Visiting Angels Carlisle, we’re committed to providing the support seniors need to age in place while living with chronic illnesses. You can count on our in-home care providers to give your loved one the personalized, one-on-one support they truly need.

What Are Chronic Illnesses?

Chronic illnesses are conditions that require medical attention and last for over a year. Some examples of chronic illnesses include arthritis, asthma, respiratory illnesses, diabetes, heart disease, cancer and osteoporosis.

Seniors who have chronic illnesses may need a higher level of in-home care than what is typically provided. Certain illnesses can impact a senior’s ability to complete everyday tasks or even make some tasks impossible to do. That’s why at Visiting Angels Carlisle, we will factor in your loved one’s condition and needs while creating their customized care plan and help you find an in-home care provider from our team who will be able to provide the level of support your loved one requires.
