When a loved one develops a chronic condition, it can be difficult for family caregivers to provide the proper care they need to remain at home. However, most seniors value their independence despite health-related challenges. At Visiting Angels Havertown, we specialize in caring for seniors with chronic conditions such as diabetes, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, cancer, asthma, arthritis and heart disease.
Our caregivers can help your loved one maintain their independence while providing the essential support they need to make managing chronic illnesses a bit easier.
What Does “Chronic Illness” Mean?
Chronic illnesses last for over a year and require ongoing medical attention. These conditions can significantly impact the way an individual lives, making everyday tasks more difficult. When a loved one has developed a chronic condition, standard in-home care may not be enough. Specialized in-home care may be necessary to remain living independently at home.
