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

In the caregiving industry, we use the term aging in place to describe one’s ability to remain living in their home or in the home of a family member throughout their golden years. Aging in place is the opposite of institutional residential care such as a nursing home. Sometimes, aging in place may also refer to the ability to age in an assisted living facility with additional help.

Q: Do you provide senior care services in assisted living facilities?

We do. When clients discover that the assistance provided in an assisted living facility is inadequate for them to remain independent, Visiting Angels can step in. Our trained caregivers can provide sufficient levels of care within an assisted living facility as some states allow hired caregivers in nursing homes or assisted living facilities.

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

Our services are usually provided within a 48-hour timeframe. However, when there are any pressing issues regarding the client, our services are often provided the same day.
