Caregivers in Columbus, OH

“There’s no place like home” is a sentiment we can all relate to, so it’s no surprise most seniors in Columbus, OH, prefer aging at home over moving to assisted living. But what if your loved one is struggling with household tasks, can no longer drive, or is feeling isolated? How do you ensure they have the support they need to live safely? An in-home caregiver could be the answer you’re looking for.

At Visiting Angels® Columbus West, we offer customized home care services, 24/7 availability, and a team of compassionate and professional caregivers that treat our clients like family. 

Signs Your Loved One May Be Ready for Caregivers in Columbus, OH

Not sure if your loved one is ready for in-home care? Look for changes in their “normal,” including:

Physical ability. Is your loved one walking slower or showing signs of discomfort when getting up from a seated position? These changes in mobility can affect their ability to get around their home safely.  

Personal hygiene. Arthritis, depression, illness, and loss of strength can all make it difficult to bathe, use the bathroom, get dressed, shave, or groom, leading to unpleasant body odor.

Mental health. Sudden changes in mood, forgetfulness, and lack of good judgment, such as falling for scams or giving away money, can all be signs of mental changes, including the early signs of Alzheimer’s or dementia.

If you recognize some of these signs, it may be time to schedule a free consultation with Visiting Angels Columbus West.
