How to Get Started with In-Home Care in Des Moines

Hiring care services often feels like a daunting task for many families. After all, the news that a loved one can no longer cope with age-related challenges on their own can come as a shock. However, at Visiting Angels® Des Moines we make it easy to set up in-home care so your loved one can get the support he or she needs without going through a complicated process.

One of our helpful staff members will come to your loved one’s home for a free initial care consultation to discuss our services and their unique care needs. Then, we’ll use your family’s input to design a customized care plan and select a compassionate care provider from our team to give your loved one assistance that makes aging in place a reality.
