Frequently Asked Elder Care Questions

Visiting Angels answers your questions about elder care services in Denver, CO

Q. What type of elder care services do you provide?

A: Aside from companion care Visiting Angels also provides personal care services. Our elder care services are designed to provide the level of care your loved one needs to continue living safely at home. They include fall prevention, medication and fluids reminders, grooming or bathing assistance as well as light housekeeping and running errands.

Q: What do you mean by "aging in place"?

A: Aging in place refers to the ability of any person to continue living in their own home or, with extra assistance, in an assisted living facility instead of in a nursing home. 

Q: Do you provide services in assisted living facilities?

A: Yes, Visiting Angles of Denver, CO, provides elder care services in homes as well as in assisted living facilities. In some cases, the assistance provided in an assisted living facility is not enough to enable a senior to remain independent. When this is the case, our qualified caregivers provide the required level of care to make this possible. Keep in mind that in some states, seniors are allowed to hire private help in an assisted living facility or a nursing home, and in some are not.

Q: How quickly can elderly care services be provided?

A: Usually, they can be provided within a 48-hour period, but sometimes even the same day.

Q: Can I reschedule if I have appointments to keep?

A: Just give us one week notice and we will make any schedule changes you need in order to take care of your responsibilities. At Visiting Angles our goal is to make the schedule work for our client and their family, not the agency. Therefore we strive to meet any of your needs and requests. We will do everything in our power to ensure the schedule you want is the schedule you get.
