About Your Consultation on In-Home Care in Crystal Lake

At Visiting Angels Crystal Lake, we realize you may feel totally lost when it comes to making care decisions. With more information about how in-home care works, you’ll be able to confidently make the right choices for your loved one’s unique situation.

During your free consultation, we’ll address any issues that arise and explain how we can accommodate your special requests.

Throughout this conversation, we’re sure to touch on topics such as:

  • Favorite free time activities and pastimes
  • Physical tasks that are difficult for the senior to perform

Matching Your Loved One with an In-Home Care Provider in Crystal Lake

Before we can proceed with the care process, we must match your loved one with a compatible caregiver. We’ll choose a member of our professional team whose personality and skill set makes them an excellent candidate.

However, we always want you to know you have the final say in who provides your loved one’s care. If for any reason you feel uneasy with the individual we’ve selected, we’ll find an alternative caregiver who instills you with confidence.
