Visiting Angels DeKalb: What is Home Care?

As we age, it is normal to begin to slow down. Adult children of elderly parents often find themselves in the position of primary caregiver for their loved ones. It can be challenging to balance a career, kids of your own, social obligations, and more, when a parent or loved one needs increasing amounts of assistance. Many families throughout DeKalb, Lee, and Ogle Counties rely on assistance in the form of home care from Visiting Angels® DeKalb IL. 

Home care from Visiting Angels DeKalb offers the support seniors needs in order to live comfortably at home as they age. We can provide assistance in the form of specialized Alzheimer's or dementia care, elderly companion care, compassionate end of life care, social care, personal or private duty care, transitional care, and other forms of non-medical senior care.
