Senior Home Care Services in Shoreline: One Size Does Not Fit All

Provider of senior home care services in Shoreline with elderly patient

A lot can change as we get older, and the process can look very different from one person to the next. At Visiting Angels® Kirkland, we know that every client in our care has their own distinctive needs, which is why we provide customized plans for our senior home care services in the Shoreline area.

However, while a personalized plan is essential to deliver the best care, there also has to be room to adapt that plan based on the changing needs of each individual.

Personalized Plans for More Effective Senior Home Care in Shoreline

Our senior care process starts by creating a plan that will act as the foundation of your family member's home care services. In order to create this plan, we consult with seniors and their families to assess their current condition, including their physical capability and the nature of their living situation. 

As part of this assessment, we typically focus on the following areas for each client:

  • Their overall health, including physical shape and mental state
  • Any limits in function, particularly in terms of their ability to do daily activities like washing and preparing meals
  • The setup of their home, including areas that could be improved to reduce fall risk or generally make life easier 
  • Their social circle, including sources of support and engagement

When we've completed the assessment, we'll get to work creating a plan based on two things — what each client in Shoreline needs to live comfortably and safely, and what goals they or their family members hope to achieve through our senior home care services at Visiting Angels Kirkland. For example, some people worry that their aging family members aren't eating well enough, or are becoming too isolated at home. In these cases, we can incorporate nutritious meal planning, companionship, or transport to particular activities in their initial care plan.

Of course, the time may come when a client's goals may shift, or an abrupt change in their physical or mental condition means they need more hands-on assistance. We understand just how quickly these changes can occur, so we make it easy to update any plan, as well as taking a proactive approach to monitoring each client's condition and adjusting their care — and care plan — as needed.
