Comforting Palliative Care for Seniors in Edgewater, MD and Surrounding Areas

Our Certified Palliative Care Program provides all-around comprehensive home care to elderly adults in Edgewater, Bowie and Crofton, MD from professional at-home caregivers

Your elderly loved one might require a lot of assistance and support in order to safely and comfortably age in place, especially if they are ill or injured. But you may not have the knowledge or availability to give them the care they need, even though you have their best interests at heart. Fortunately, professional senior care from Visiting Angels in Edgewater, MD can help you make sure your loved one has everything they need to live out their golden years without feeling like they have to sacrifice their independence.

Palliative care is designed to provide comfort and improve the quality of life regardless of life expectancy. Both palliative and hospice care are used interchangeably and while the core of both terms is the same, hospice care is reserved for those who are nearing the end of their lives. With help from our at-home caregivers, you can be assured that your elderly loved one will be given the support that they need.

Our program is designed to approach care in a holistic manner, so you can have peace of mind knowing that your loved ones are provided with the assistance and comfort regardless of their life expectancy. We provide non-medical care and assistance to your loved ones that cover the different facets of their lives: social, emotional, physical and spiritual.
