Visiting Angels Eldersburg Helps Seniors Manage Chronic Illnesses

At our in-home care agency, our trained caregivers help seniors in Eldersburg, Westminster, Ellicott City, Columbia, Baltimore, Randallstown and the surrounding areas of Maryland to manage their chronic illnesses while continuing to age independently at home

Singlehandedly providing care for a senior loved one may be rewarding, but it often comes with a number of challenges, especially when your parent or relative gets diagnosed with a chronic illness.

At Visiting Angels Eldersburg, we are here to provide you with a strong support system that can allow your elderly loved one to continue living safely and independently at home, regardless of their condition. Our office has the resources and staff required to help your loved one properly manage their chronic illness and maintain their overall well-being for longer.

What Are Chronic Illnesses?

Any condition or disease that requires medical treatment that lasts over a year can be described as a chronic or long-term illness. Quite often, these conditions cause a significant shift in one’s quality of life and make simple, everyday tasks more difficult to perform. While chronic illnesses are often associated with old age, younger adults develop them as well. However, some of the most common age-related chronic illnesses include arthritis, asthma, respiratory illnesses, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, cancer, dementia, osteoporosis and others.
