About Our Home Care in Bellevue

How Our Home Care Process Works
Caregiving is too important, too changeable, and too personal for a rigid approach. That's why we tailor our home care services and scheduling to the needs of every client. To get to the bottom of your loved one's care needs and how to best serve your family, we'll begin with the following steps:
- First contact - Make the initial call to Visiting Angels Kirkland at (425) 828-4500 to ask about specific care services, share some details about your loved one, and find out about our rates.
- No-cost evaluation - One of our care professionals will come to your loved one's home to complete a care assessment. This evaluation will focus on your relative's physical and cognitive state, the activities they find difficult, their usual routine, and their personal preferences. It's also a chance for family members to ask questions and provide their own insights.
- Care plan creation - Everything we learn during the evaluation will shape your loved one's personalized care plan, from the types of care provided to the exact timing.
- Caregiver selection - When we've established a comprehensive care plan that meets your family's needs, we can select and introduce you to the caregiver we think would be an ideal choice.
Once we begin providing care for your loved one, we'll continue to monitor the quality of care they receive. We offer flexible home care services at any time day or night, so we can adapt to your family's unique care requirements as they change.
Respite Care Assistance
Need a break from your own caregiving duties? All family caregivers need some time to themselves to rest and revisit other areas in their lives.
As committed as you are to your loved one's comfort and safety, you have to consider your well-being as well. Our care includes occasional respite care to give family caregivers the chance to step back from their role for a while.
Our Personal Care Service
In most cases, families contact Visiting Angels Kirkland because their loved one can't manage certain basic tasks at home. Personal care is a key part of our home care in Bellevue. It includes day-to-day assistance with all the tasks your relative finds difficult, stressful, or potentially dangerous. This can include:
- Making meals
- Buying groceries
- Helping with bathing and dressing
- Providing physical aid while walking or transferring
- Performing basic housework
- Reminding clients to take their medications
Alzheimer's Care and Dementia Care
Memory loss and other symptoms of cognitive decline can be deeply destabilizing for seniors. They can also increase the risk of wandering or self-neglect. To help your loved one feel more secure and provide peace of mind for your family, we offer specialized care for Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia.
Our caregivers can provide stability while making sure your loved one's needs are fully met. They can prepare meals, make sure your relative takes their medications and attends their appointments, and keep track of their condition over time.
Companion Care and Social Care
Quality of life is about more than having your basic needs met. As part of our home care in Bellevue, our caregivers can provide companionship and interesting conversation, join your loved one on walks, and plan outings based on their interests.
To help your loved one stay connected to family and friends near and far, our caregivers can also coach them on how to use different video chat and messaging applications more comfortably.
End of Life Care
We offer end of life care for clients who are nearing the end of their lives, including those in the later stages of a terminal health condition. Our caregivers will prioritize your loved one's physical comfort at this time. They can also support your family and take on some of the tasks that are keeping you from your loved one.
We also offer palliative care as one of our care services in Bellevue. This option is open to clients with terminal illnesses, whatever their age and where they are in terms of treatment. Our caregivers will focus on their physical comfort as well as their social, spiritual, and emotional well-being to help your loved one reconnect with the joys of life.
Ready-Set-Go Home Program
Hospital readmission rates are especially high during the first month back home, often because seniors don't have the support they need. Our Ready-Set-Go Home program includes in-hospital support to prepare seniors and their families for the transition home. Our caregivers can also assist with the day-to-day challenges of recovery while ensuring your loved one pursues the proper follow-up care.
Safe and Steady Program
Falling is a common occurrence among seniors, as low visibility, poor mobility, and other common parts of aging all contribute to increased health risk. Unfortunately, a fall can lead to broken bones and other major injuries. We created our Safe and Steady fall prevention program to help seniors navigate their homes more safely.
As part of this program, our care team can recommend enhancements to your loved one's home, assess them for specific risk factors, and include walking assistance in their home care plan.
