Elder Care in Hyattsville, MD and Surrounding Areas FAQs

Q. What kind of services do you provide?

A: At Visiting Angels, we offer personal and companion care services. We’re dedicated to helping seniors get the elder care that they need to stay at home safely and with dignity.

Q: What does the term "aging in place" mean?

A: Aging in place typically refers to the act of growing old in their home or the family home. This would be the opposite of staying in institutional residential care, like within a nursing home. For some clients, “aging in place” may mean the ability to stay in an assisted living facility

Q: Do you provide services in assisted living facilities?

A:  Yes we do! Some of our clients believe that their assisted living facility isn’t providing the elder care that they need to maintain their independence. In those cases, we can provide a trusted caregiver to help. Though, in some states, you aren’t allowed to provide private help in an assisted living facility or nursing home. Be sure to research the rules in your state beforehand. 

Q: How quickly can home care services be provided/started?

A:  Most of our elder care services can begin within a 48-hour period. Sometimes, care can begin on the same day. 

Q: How easily can I change the schedule?

A:  To change the schedule, you just have to give as little as a week’s notice. At Visiting Angels, you are our priority. We’ll do everything in our power to make sure that the schedule you need is the schedule that you get. 

Q: How do I start home care services with Visiting Angels?
