How In-Home Caregivers Can Help Seniors in Santa Cruz and Monterey Counties Manage Chronic Illnesses at Home

Dedicated in-home caregivers from Visiting Angels Central Coast help seniors in Scotts Valley, Santa Cruz, Marina and surrounding areas in California manage chronic conditions and age safely at home

When an aging loved one develops a chronic condition, it can become increasingly difficult for family caregivers to provide sufficient levels of care all by themselves. At the same time, despite depleting health and arising medical complications, most seniors value their independence and have a strong urge to remain in the same place they lived in for decades – their home.

At Visiting Angels Central Coast, we are here to help your mom or dad get the care and assistance they need to continue living safely and comfortably at home for longer. An experienced in-home caregiver from our local agency can provide ample support and help your parent manage their chronic condition.

What Are Chronic Illnesses?

Any condition that lasts over three months and causes long-lasting effects on the affected person can be described as a chronic illness. Many of these illnesses often make daily tasks much more challenging, taking a significant toll on one’s quality of life. The most common chronic illnesses in seniors include arthritis, asthma, respiratory illnesses, diabetes, various heart diseases, cancer, and osteoporosis, among others. Unfortunately, when an elderly loved one develops a chronic condition, it is very likely that regular home care services will not be sufficient to keep them independent and that they will require some type of specialized care.
