Dementia Care in Charleston
When a senior is diagnosed with Alzheimer's or dementia, many families believe that it is only a matter of time before they will be forced to leave their home and move into an assisted living facility. Dementia care from Visiting Angels® Charleston can make it so that your relative can continue living in their home longer than you may have thought possible. In the hands of our incredible caregivers, the non-medical care services we provide help to take the pressure off family caregivers by giving their loved one the support they need, right at home.
