If you don’t have any experience with in-home senior care, you are probably wondering how to get started with this type of care. Maybe the whole process seems complicated at first, but it’s actually pretty simple when you choose Visiting Angels Havertown. Whether you need help with choosing the right care plan or with finding the perfect caregiver for your aging parent, we will be here for you every step of the way.

When you contact us, we will schedule a free in-home consultation and come to your loved one’s home. During this meeting we will get to know your parent and learn about their medical history, care needs, limitations and abilities. We will then create a customized care plan for your aging loved one. Afterward, you will be able to choose the home care specialist who will work with your loved one.

Your In-Home Consultation

At Visiting Angels Havertown, we strive to provide each and every one of our clients with the level of care he or she requires. This is why in-home consultations are so important to us. They give us the opportunity to learn more about the client as well as discuss some of the important details.

To create a care plan and find a caregiver that will suit your loved one’s needs perfectly, we will need to know whether they have any specific physical concerns, such as mobility challenges, grooming and hygiene problems, or any chronic conditions. During the in-home meeting, we will also discuss your parent’s emotional needs and preferences, as well as their preferred routine and schedule. We will also learn whether your parent struggles with Alzheimer's or another form of dementia and see with which daily activities they require assistance. In the end, we will discuss care logistics, ways our caregivers can access your loved one's home, as well as caregiver availability.

Choosing Your Home Care Specialist

If you decide to work with Visiting Angels Havertown, we will finalize your parent’s care plan and arrange meetings between you, your parent and their potential home care specialist. This way you will be able to meet in person potential caregivers and see which ones are most compatible with your senior’s personality and care needs.
