When to Choose Private Home Care Services from Visiting Angels Havertown
Here’s when families in Havertown, Wayne, Bryn Mawr, Wynnewood and nearby communities in Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia Counties in PA should consider private home care services for senior loved ones
When activities of daily living become challenging for your senior loved one, it may be time to seek help. Age-related difficulties or illness can make simple tasks such as getting dressed or washing dishes a chore. In addition, diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and cancer can disrupt daily activities and complicate your loved one’s routine.
Despite facing age-related issues, many seniors value their independence and privacy. If your loved one wishes to remain independent but could use some assistance with everyday tasks, it may be time to consider private home care services. But it can be difficult to determine whether at-home assistance is the best option for your loved one, especially if they don’t explicitly admit they need help.
Visiting Angels Havertown offers personalized, one-on-one in-home senior care so that your loved one can age happily at home while getting the care and support they need. We can help you determine whether our services are the perfect fit for your loved one’s day-to-day life.
Are Private Home Care Services Right for My Loved One?
Here are some common scenarios that show it may be time for private home care from Visiting Angels Havertown:
- Your loved one wants to live at home but needs a helping hand

- Your loved one is facing health or mobility challenges
Many mobility and health concerns can be safely and effectively managed at home. At Visiting Angels Havertown, our caregivers can provide medication reminders, transportation to medical appointments, fall prevention and safety assessments. We are proactive and committed to putting our clients’ needs and safety first, so you can have peace of mind knowing your loved one is in good hands.
- Your loved one has dementia and wants to remain in a familiar place
Those living with dementia do better remaining with familiar faces, surroundings and daily routines. A move to an assisted living facility could be very upsetting for your senior. Private home care from Visiting Angels Havertown includes customized dementia care to help your loved one stay safe in the home they’ve lived in for years.
- Family caregivers need a break
Respite care gives family caregivers a well-deserved break to practice proper self-care, concentrate on work or family, manage responsibilities and avoid caregiver burnout. You can schedule our caregivers for just a few hours or for weeks at a time.
- Your parents need different levels of care, but they don’t want to be separated
When older spouses have different care needs, a senior care facility could separate them. For example, one spouse may need assisted living, while the other needs memory care services. Separation could cause significant distress for those who have spent decades together. With private home care services from Visiting Angels Havertown, spouses can receive different levels of care, without separating or moving to a facility, for more quality couple time.
- Your aging parent can no longer care for their spouse
When couples spend a lifetime together, it’s natural to want to care for their ailing partner at home. However, both partners are advanced in age and may not be capable of caring for each other. In some cases, this can lead to an unsafe environment. Our professional caregivers can keep both older adults safe and healthy in their home, plus receive personalized care for their unique situation.
