As the leading senior care provider in Jenkintown, PA, Visiting Angels can answer common question about at-home care services for elderly and disabled adults in Ambler, Abington, Philadelphia, Horsham, Hatboro and surrounding areas in Eastern Montgomery County

Q. What kind of at-home care services do you provide?

A: At Visiting Angels Jenkintown, we offer a number of carefully developed personal care services encompassing a wide array of senior care solutions. With our care programs, your loved one can comfortably remain at home for longer without your family worrying about their safety or well-being. Our services can include meal preparation, light housekeeping and laundry, medication and fluid reminders, fall prevention, assistance with personal hygiene, transportation, and more.

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

A: As its name suggests, aging in place refers to one's ability to continue living at home or the home of a family member as they age. While it is the opposite of institutional residential care such as a nursing home, aging in place may sometimes also include the ability to stay in an assisted living facility.

Q: Do you provide services in assisted living facilities?

A: Yes. We can provide care for seniors in assisted living facilities. Seniors are often unable to maintain a high quality of life just with the help they get in such facilities. When this is the case, they can turn to us for added assistance and support, which can allow them to truly lead an independent lifestyle.

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

A: Typically, our services can be provided in as little as 48 hours from your request. Sometimes they can be provided even the very same day you contact us.

Q: Can I change the schedule if I have appointments to keep?

A: Our care plans are flexible, so you can make changes to the schedule, but you must inform us one week in advance. We will do everything we can to meet your needs, as we believe that the care schedule has to work for the family, not the agency.

Q: How do I start senior care with Visiting Angels?

A: Getting started with at-home care services from Visiting Angels Jenkintown is as easy as it gets. All you have to do is contact our office. A member of our care coordination team will schedule a free in-home consultation in your home whenever it works best for you. During the meeting, we will conduct a care assessment. Then, we will choose caregivers who are the right fit for your family. After you meet and approve of our choice, they will start working for you.
