What To Expect as Visiting Angels Caregiver
As we age, we tend to need more assistance. Health concerns, weakness, memory loss, and slowing metabolism can make it challenging to do the everyday tasks once second nature. At Visiting Angels Flagstaff, we believe seniors can still live a healthy, whole life in the comfort of their own home, which is why we offer a variety of services to help seniors age with dignity at home.
Our senior caregivers are the center of what we do. We depend on our caring, compassionate team to support our clients and their families. Most of the Visiting Angels Flagstaff team will admit that each day is different–varying clients with specific needs can make for a unique work week!

What is a Senior Caregiver and What Duties Do They Perform?
A professional senior caregiver is a non-family member who helps care for an aging individual. They may also be called a companion caregiver. A senior caregiver can perform many duties, depending on the senior’s needs, including assisting with personal hygiene, cooking meals, doing housework, providing emotional support and companionship, managing medications and transportation.
When deciding to become a caregiver, you should have an idea of what you’ll be starting. At Visiting Angels Flagstaff, we offer several categories of care for senior clients and their families.
