Frequently Asked Questions About Visiting Angels' Senior Home Care in Greater Kansas City, MO

Visiting Angels Answers Common Senior Home Care Questions from Families in Kansas City, Lee's Summit, Liberty, and Surrounding Areas

Q. What kind of services do you provide?

A: Designed to give our elderly clients the assistance they need with daily activities, our various essential senior home care plans allow seniors to continue living at home comfortably and safely. With services such as personal care and companionship, your elderly loved one can continue to age in place with dignity. Other additional programs support seniors by providing assistance when they are running errands, bathing and grooming, taking fluid and medication reminders, and for light housekeeping, as well as fall prevention.

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

A: The term aging in place refers to the ability of an elder to remain at home safely, all with the assistance of a senior home care provider. In essence, it is the opposite of a nursing home, which is institutionalized residential care. At times, however, it can refer to extra support in order to continue living in an assisted living facility.

Q: Do you offer services on-site in assisted living facilities?

A:  Yes, we certainly do. Unfortunately, there are times when families come to the startling realization that their loved one isn't getting enough support while they are in a nursing home. In this situation, Visiting Angels of Kansas City can provide a qualified, care provider to ensure they have the assistance they need.

Q: How quickly can we start?

A:  In general, we provide one-on-one senior home care services within a period of 48-hours, though on many occasions, we have been able to send an aide the same day.

Q: Is it possible to change the schedule if I have an appointment?

A:  With a one-week notice, we can certainly accommodate your request for a change in schedule. At Visiting Angels of Kansas City, we believe in working closely with families in order to offer the best possible kind of care services. Thus, we'll do everything possible to serve you.
