Q: How do I get started with Visiting Angels Edgewater?
A: To begin receiving our elder care services, just call our Edgewater, MD office, and we'll handle it from there. We provide free in-home consultations, during which one of our client care coordinators will come to your loved one's home and discuss a possible plan of care with the family. Once we've decided on the kind and degree of care that will best meet Mom or Dad's requirements, we'll match your loved one with a qualified, suitable home care aide from our local team.
Q: How soon can my loved one begin receiving care?
A: Our caregivers are able to provide elder care services within 48 hours. However, in many circumstances, we make every attempt to begin providing same-day care.
Q. What kind of services do you provide?
A: Our elder care services are intended to offer suitable levels of support and assistance for elderly and disabled adults so that they may continue living securely, comfortably and independently at home. Our home care aides can assist your loved one with light housework, laundry, meal preparation, medication and fluid reminders, grocery shopping, errands, mobility support, transportation, bathing, getting dressed and so much more.
Q: What does the term "aging in place" mean?
A: This term is often used by professionals in the senior care industry to define the capacity of any aging adult to grow old in their own home or the home of a family member. Aging in place is the polar opposite of the institutionalized care offered in nursing homes, assisted living facilities and similar communities. However, it may also refer to supplemental care offered at an assisted living facility in addition to residential care.
Q: Can I change the schedule if I have appointments to keep?
A: Yes, we can operate within your loved one's time constraints and stick to their schedule. Any adjustments to the timetable are simple. You just need to give us one week's notice. Our services are designed with the goal of making the schedule work for your family, not for our agency. Seniors come first at Visiting Angels Edgewater. Our caregivers will make every effort to ensure that you have the schedule you need at all times.
Q: Do you provide care in assisted living facilities?
A: Yes. When seniors in assisted living facilities need extra assistance to increase their independence, our caregivers can collaborate with facility officials to make that happen.
