Managing a chronic illness independently can be challenging for senior adults. A chronic illness includes any condition that lasts a year or more, requires on-going medical attention, and limits activities of daily living. Some of the most common chronic conditions faced by aging adults include arthritis, asthma, respiratory illnesses, diabetes, and heart disease. Seniors with dementia and certain types of cancer are often considered to be managing chronic disease as well.

Visiting Angels provides long-term home care solutions for seniors managing chronic illnesses. Our home care services provide assistance with all non-medical activities of daily living. Caregivers can help with personal hygiene, toileting and incontinence care, mobility assistance, and more. Often, seniors with chronic conditions just need some consistent help with every day tasks – and Visiting Angels is here to help!
