A: As a home care agency, Visiting Angels provides various elder care services such as personal care and companion care. Many seniors are unable to take care of themselves so in order to remain at home, they contact us to ensure that they get the support they need to stay at home safely, with dignity. Often, we assist on-site with medication and fluid reminders, fall prevention, grooming or bathing assistance, light housekeeping, and running errands.
A: A term used to describe a senior remaining at home throughout their golden years, aging in place normally requires additional support services. Basically, it is the opposite of living in a nursing home, which is institutionalized residential care. However, there are times where aging in place also means getting extra help to remain in an assisted living facility.
A: Yes, our home care agency does ensure additional support on-site, wherever it is needed. At times, people come to the realization that the help provided in an assisted living facility is insufficient to enable them to remain independent. In these cases, Visiting Angels sends a skilled, qualified aide to ensure someone is there to help.
A: Ordinarily, we can provide services within 48-hours, and often, the same day.
A: Indeed, we can accommodate your schedule change requests with as little as a week’s notice. At Visiting Angels of Douglasville, we believe in making the care schedule work for the family, not us. As such, we strive to do everything in our power to make sure the schedule you want is the schedule you get.
A: Contact us. After a free, no-obligation assessment is booked, our staff will answer your questions during the meeting. Then, should you wish to continue with our home care agency services, we'll help you identify the caregivers who have the skills, personality, and availability to assist you and your family. You'll be able to meet the aide and if you approve, they will begin.
