How Our Home Care Process Works
At Visiting Angels Kansas City, our home care revolves around you. To introduce you to our services and ensure you receive the right type and level of care, we'll guide you through the following steps:
- Having an initial discussion that touches on your care situation, the types of care we offer, and what the potential costs would be.
- Meeting for a no-cost consultation, so we can get to know your loved one's needs and preferences, answer your questions and connect with the other family members involved in providing care.
- Mapping out a custom care plan and schedule that will have the biggest impact on your loved one's quality of life — and provide the most relief for your family caregivers.
- Finding the care professionals on our team who are best suited for your family based on their abilities, personality, and schedule.
Once care begins, we'll keep track of your loved one's condition and maintain continuous contact with your family to make sure we're on the same page. We understand that caregiving is a fluid process, so we'll be prepared to adapt and adjust your loved one's care as needed.
