Visiting Angels Kansas City: What is Home Care?

You've heard of home care. But when it comes time to make the decision for an aging loved one, you might realize that you don't know much about it. At Visiting Angels Kansas City, we're here to help. As a licensed and bonded home care agency serving seniors throughout Kansas City, KS, we have the answers and information to help you navigate the process of making the right decision for your loved one. 

How Home Care from Visiting Angels Kansas City Works

Even when you know your loved one needs professional care if they want to remain in their home, the decision is still a difficult one. There are many questions and uncertainties that lie ahead. For instance, how will your loved one respond to a caregiver? How can a caregiver respect privacy, while still meeting your loved one's needs, such as help with bathing and grooming? And what about when there's issues with memory, hearing loss, or other conditions?

While there are many home care questions you might have, Visiting Angels Kansas City takes the time needed to answer each and every one. We want you to feel comfortable and confident with your decision, which is why we never rush the process and always move at your pace. 

That being said, we can also respond swiftly in situations where families need an immediate response. This includes a late-day discharge from a hospital or medical facility, or another type of emergency. We can also provide extra support when your loved one is bed-ridden or in an assisted living facility. If you're moving your loved one into your home or that of another family member's, we can help ease the transition with a variety of services and support options. 

Beyond that, Visiting Angels Kansas City has provided home care for thousands of individuals. As a result, we have the knowledge to ensure your loved one gets the exact right level of attention and support to stay safe and healthy, while also enjoying a better quality of life.
