Frequently Asked Questions About Elder Care Services from Visiting Angels Edgewater

The home care aides at Visiting Angels can answer your questions about elder care services available in Edgewater, Crofton and Bowie, MD

Q. What kind of services do you provide?

A: At Visiting Angels Edgewater, our personalized senior care services are designed to provide adequate levels of support and assistance for older adults so they can continue living safely, comfortably, and independently at home. Our professional home care aides can help your loved one with light housekeeping, laundering, meal preparation, medication and fluid reminders, shopping, errands, mobility assistance, transportation, fall prevention and much more.

Q: What does the term "aging in place" mean?

A: Professionals in the caregiving industry often use this term to describe the ability of any aging adult to grow old in their own home or the home of their family member. Aging in place is the opposite of institutionalized types of care provided in nursing homes. However, it can refer to additional elder care services provided in an assisted living facility to supplement residential care.

Q: Do you provide services in assisted living facilities as well?

A: Yes, we do. When seniors placed in assisted living facilities require additional support to boost their independence, our home care aides can work with personnel from the facility to make that happen.

Q: How quickly can elder care services be provided/started?

A: Typically, our services can be provided within 48 hours. In most cases, however, we make every effort to start providing care the very same day you apply.

Q: Can I change the schedule if I have appointments to keep?

A: Yes, we work according to your timeframe and adhere to your schedule. Any schedule changes can be easily made. You just need to give us as little as one week notice. The philosophy behind our home care services is to make the schedule work for your family, not for our agency. With Visiting Angels – you come first. Our caregivers will make every effort you get the schedule you need at all times.

Q: How do I start elder care services with Visiting Angels Edgewater?

A: All you need to do to get started with our home care services is to contact our Edgewater, MD office and we’ll take it from there.
