Maximize Your Senior Care Consultation in Fairfield, CT and the Surrounding Area

Visiting Angels Offers a FREE In-Home Senior Care Consultation in Fairfield, Trumbull, Westport, and Nearby Cities

As you explore senior care options for your loved one, you probably have a lot of questions. Issues such as costs, scheduling, services, and caregiver qualifications might be on your mind. It can be overwhelming. A consultation provides an opportunity to learn about our services. A care coordinator will come to your loved one’s home and answer your questions. They will get to know you and your loved one to better understand your specific needs. Your free consultation will provide expert guidance to help you navigate the decision-making process. It is the first step to getting the compassionate care you need.

How Should I Prepare for My Care Consultation?

Before your consultation, let your loved one know that you are considering hiring a caregiver. The decision to hire professional senior care can be a sensitive, emotionally charged issue and may be met with objections. If your loved one resists the idea, be sure to listen to their opinions and concerns, but emphasize that their health and well-being are your top priorities.

Determine specific care needs:

  • What time of day does he or she typically need assistance?
  • What tasks are the most challenging?
  • Is there a chronic illness such as Alzheimer’s disease that requires specific services?

Be sure review your financial situation in advance:

  • How much money is in your budget for senior care?

It is also a good idea to bring a list of your questions and concerns to cover during the consultation.

What Topics Will We Discuss During the Consultation?

Our compassionate care coordinators at Visiting Angels of Fairfield are skilled at putting seniors and family caregivers at ease, especially when discussing sensitive issues. We will mainly talk about matching our services to your needs, scheduling preferences, and how to best collaborate with our office.

Our in-home consultations include complimentary home safety and fall-risk assessments, and we will examine your loved one’s specific safety needs. Your care coordinator will answer your questions about caregiver qualifications, safety, oversight, emergency procedures, and other concerns.

What Happens After the Consultation?

Your care coordinator will use information from your consultation to develop a comprehensive care plan tailored to your loved one’s unique needs. The plan will include a schedule and description of specific activities and tasks that require caregiver assistance.

Your care coordinator will then match your loved one with a compatible caregiver. You can interview any caregiver recommended to be sure of a great fit. Although, if you believe the match is not quite right, you can request a different caregiver at any time, for any reason.

When Does Care Begin?

Our caregivers can typically begin providing services within 48 hours of the initial consultation. In some cases, services can start the same day.
