Q. What kind of services do your home care professionals provide?

A: At Visiting Angels Eldersburg, we provide a wide range of personal care and companion care services designed to help seniors continue living safely and independently at home for longer. A highly qualified home health aide can help your loved one with a number of daily activities such as personal hygiene tasks, light housekeeping, running errands, meal preparation, medication reminders, mobility assistance, and more.

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

A: The term aging in place is widely used in the caregiving industry to describe the ability of an individual to grow old in their own home or in the home of a family member. To put it simply, aging in place is the opposite of any institutional residential care such as a nursing home or an assisted living facility. However, in some cases aging in place can also refer to the ability to stay in an assisted living facility with the assistance of our compassionate caregivers.

Q: Do your home care professionals provide services in assisted living facilities?

A:  Yes, we do. In some cases seniors placed in an assisted living facility come to the conclusion that assistance provided in the facility is not sufficient for them to remain independent. In these cases, Visiting Angels can refer a qualified home health aide in order to make this possible. Some states allow you to hire private help in an assisted living facility or a nursing home.

Q: How quickly can care be provided/started?

A: Generally speaking, our home care professionals can start working with you within a 48-hour period, but in the majority of cases, we can accommodate requests on the same day when you apply.

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

A: Any schedule changes are easily made with as little as a week’s notice. We’ll do everything possible to make the schedule work for you, not the agency. With Visiting Angels Eldersburg, you come first.

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

A: You can contact our Eldersburg, MD office to find a home health aide in your area. We will have our home care professionals visit your loved one’s home and conduct a no-obligation assessment, free of charge. We will then match you with a compatible caregiver who possesses the skills, experience and availability to assist you. Only once you’ve met the caregiver and approved the match will they begin working for your family.
