Frequently Asked Questions About Elderly Care from Visiting Angels Gastonia

As the leading home care agency in Gastonia, NC, Visiting Angels can answer any questions you have about in-home care for your senior loved one, including the frequently asked questions below

What types of elderly care services do you provide?

At Visiting Angels, we provide a variety of home care services, including personal care services and companion care.

We understand that many seniors need assistance with everyday activities and tasks. Our at home senior care services are designed to allow seniors to live safely and happily in their home but to also maintain their independence.

Our at home care services may include medication and fluids reminders, fall prevention, light housekeeping, assistance with personal hygiene activities, and running errands.

Do you also provide services in nursing homes and assisted living facilities?

Yes, our private caregivers can assist clients who live in assisted living facilities or nursing homes. While for most seniors assistance provided by caregivers in an assisted living facility would be enough, there are still some seniors that may need an extra pair of hands to remain independent. When that’s the case, our caregiver is at senior’s disposal, ready to help them for as long as they need.

What does "aging in place" mean?

Aging in place is the term used to describe the ability of a senior to continue living in their own home rather than to move to a nursing home or assisted living facility. In most cases, aging in place also means hiring an elderly care provider to assist a senior with activities and tasks of everyday living.

How long does it take before your caregiver comes into my home and start with elderly care?

It usually takes up to 48 hours for one of our caregivers to start assisting your senior loved one. However, it’s also possible for services to be provided the same day.

Can I change the schedule if needed?

Yes, you can, as long as you let us know about that change one week before that. One of our principles is to always put our clients and their families first including your schedule and requests.

How can I start with Visiting Angels home care services?

You can call 704-825-3350 or use our contact form to learn more about the services we offer. After that, our staff will come to your home for a free assessment. We will talk about elderly care for you or your senior loved one and we’ll find a caregiver that is right for you.
