Overcoming Common Objections

Has your loved one fought you over the idea of care at home? Many seniors feel that receiving help from someone outside their family can be unsafe or limit their independence. At Visiting Angels® Detroit, we can connect your loved one with a personal caregiver who is respectful and able to meet their needs. We are sharing some common objections to senior care below and how you can get started with us.

Why Your Loved One May Reject a Personal Caregiver

One reason your loved one may object to a personal caregiver is the idea of having a stranger in their home. This may cause them to feel anxious and uncomfortable. Allowing your loved one to be involved in the vetting and selection of their caregiver can help them become comfortable with the individual.

Another reason seniors often reject the idea of a caregiver is because they only want help from family. Your loved one obviously feels comfortable and safe with those who are closest to them. However, due to family members' careers, schedules, and other obligations, this may not be an option.

Lastly, many elderly individuals fear the price of an in-home caregiver. The cost of home care can seem expensive to your loved one, especially if they view it as unnecessary. However, the cost of quality and personalized care will allow your loved one to age in place and bring you peace of mind.

At Visiting Angels Detroit, our caregivers are carefully vetted and selected to serve our clients. With background checks and ongoing training, your loved one can feel comfortable with their personal caregiver. Our team is able to provide a number of services directly in the homes of our clients, making their daily lives easier and more fulfilling. 

Here are some services offered by our personal caregivers at Visiting Angels Detroit:

  • Personal care assistance
  • Light housekeeping
  • Companionship
  • Meal planning and preparation
  • Running errands
  • Mobility assistance
