Frequently Asked Questions About In-Home Care Services in Gadsden, AL
Visiting Angels can answer any questions you have about in-home care services for seniors in Gadsden, AL
Q. What kind of services do you offer?
A: Here at Visiting Angels Gadsden, we offer customized companion care, personal care services and more. All of our in-home care services are designed with one goal, to help seniors who need extra assistance with everyday activities live independently in their own homes. Therefore, our caregivers are here to provide help with fall prevention, medication and fluids reminders, light housekeeping, grooming or bathing assistance, and running errands.
Q: What does the term "aging in place" refer to?
A: Aging in place is a term used to describe the ability of a person to grow old in their home, instead of moving to an assisted living facility or a nursing home. Other times, it refers to the ability of a senior to stay in an assisted living facility with some extra help.
Q: Can your services be provided in assisted living facilities?
A: Yes, they can. Sometimes seniors who live in assisted living facilities do not receive a proper level of care necessary for their independent living. When this happens, our caregivers are here to provide that extra help and enable them to remain independent. In some states people are allowed to hire a private caregiver in an assisted living facility.
Q: How soon can in-home care services be started?
A: Our services can be provided within a 48-hour period, sometimes even the same day.
Q: Can I make changes in the schedule when necessary?
A: Of course you can and we need just one week’s notice. Our services are designed to make the lives of our clients easier, and so are our schedules. At Visiting Angels, you are our priority, and we will do everything to ensure that your schedule suits your needs.
Q: How do I start in-home care services with your agency?
A: If you believe you can benefit from our senior care services, contact our office in Gadsden, AL, and talk to our care coordinators. Our representatives will visit you in your own home and conduct a free, no-obligation assessment. When we learn about your care needs we will match you with a caregiver who has the skills, experience and availability to assist you. After you’ve met them and approved of our choice, they will begin working for you.
