Elderly Home Care Services Tailored to Your Needs

When you choose Visiting Angels for elderly home care, we begin by reviewing your loved one's needs and essentials to develop a personalized care plan. We meet with involved family members and, when necessary, consult with your senior’s:

  • Physician(s)
  • Social workers
  • Hospital or nursing home staff

Our goal is to get a complete picture of your loved one's in-home care needs.

As part of this process, our home care agencies match your loved one's basic needs to a selected group of compassionate in-home caregivers. We invite and encourage you to be part of the caregiver selection process.

Home Care Assistance: Help at Home

While your elderly loved one may struggle with admitting they need help at home or professional home care assistance, it’s important they get the help they need and deserve. You may notice that they are struggling with their grooming and household chores or just need a friendly face to talk to during the day.

The idea of moving them to a nursing home or an assisted living facility may stress them and you at the same time. Many seniors want to remain at home, and our dedicated care services can help them age in place in the comforts of their own homes, and give you peace of mind that they’re receiving personalized assistance.

Home Care Questions & Answers

What is the Difference Between Home Care and Home Health Care?

When someone thinks about home care, they assume home care and home health care are the same, but that is not the case. This can make it confusing for families searching for the right type of care – and the right care providers – for their loved one.

Home Care Services

Non-medical and provide companionship and assistance with activities of daily living.

VS

Home Health Care

Medical-skilled services that typically require a written order from a doctor.

What Services Does Visiting Angels Provide?

Visiting Angels provides companion care and personal care services. Our home care services are designed to provide assistance with those activities that elders need help with in order to be able to stay at home safely and with dignity. Our in home care services may include fall prevention, medication and fluids reminders, light housekeeping, grooming or bathing assistance, and running errands.

What Does “Aging in Place” Mean?

Aging in place refers to the ability of any person to grow old in their own home or that of their family. It is the opposite of institutional residential care like a nursing home. Sometimes it may mean the ability, with extra help, to stay in an assisted living facility as well.

Does Visiting Angels Provide Services in Assisted Living Facilities?

Yes. People sometimes discover that the assistance provided in an assisted living facility is not sufficient to enable them to remain independent. In these cases, Visiting Angels provides a qualified caregiver to make this possible. In some states you are allowed to hire private help in an assisted living facility – or nursing home.

How Quickly Can Home Care Services Start?

Generally services can be provided within a 48-hour period and often the same day.

Can I Change the Home Care Schedule If I Have Appointments to Keep?

Schedule changes are easily accomplished with as little as one week notice. Our philosophy is to make the schedule work for the family, not the agency. You come first. Your needs, your requests, your schedule. We will do everything possible to make sure the schedule you want is the schedule you get.

How Do I Start Home Care Services With Visiting Angels?

Contact your nearest home care office or call 800-365-4189 with you senior home care questions. We will have our staff come to your home and conduct a free, no obligation home care assessment.
