Companion Care in Kansas City: How We Can Help Your Parents Take Care of Each Other

Your parents’ marriage is built on love, support, and care. They have seen each other through thick and thin. Now they may see it as their duty and their right to care for each other as they age. This duty can make it difficult for your parents to accept they could benefit from the companion care services available in the Kansas City, KS area.

While your parents may have cared for each other through countless injuries and illnesses, caring for a spouse as they age is a different type of challenge. Providing long-term care, sometimes 24 hours a day, can leave a caregiving spouse stressed, overwhelmed, and exhausted.

How Companion Care from Visiting Angels Kansas City Can Help

It can be difficult for a parent to admit they need assistance caring for their spouse. They may see relying on companion care from Visiting Angels® Kansas City as a loss of independence. They may feel like they have failed their partner, and they may feel uncomfortable inviting a caregiver into their home.

While the companion care services available in the Kansas City area can offer support to seniors, this type of care is not a replacement for the love and support provided by a spouse. Professional caregivers can be there to lend a helping hand and offer respite to spousal caregivers without overstepping the boundaries set out by their clients.

At Visiting Angels Kansas City, our companion care services are personalized to meet the exact care needs of each senior we care for in Kansas City, Shawnee, Overland Park, Lenexa, Leawood, Prairie Village, Mission, and the surrounding communities. We understand the special bond couples share and are committed to providing support that allows both parties to live safely and comfortably at home.

If mom is missing doctor’s appointments and social events because she’s afraid to leave dad, we can provide respite care as needed, so she is able to take care of herself. If dad is having trouble keeping up with tasks around the house while taking care of mom, we can provide assistance with laundry, cleaning, and meal preparation. Whatever your parents' care needs, the companion care services we offer at Visiting Angels Kansas City, KS are here to help.
