For many of us the time is here to help
our aging parents or family members when it becomes difficult for them
to manage on their own. Organizing our own family can be somewhat of a
challenge at times and the additional responsibility of our helping our
aging parents can be overwhelming. However, no one says you have to
carry the responsibility all alone. As working parents with children,
we are faced with new stresses to balance work and family. Families who
are separated by great distances must make hard choices to provide care.
Sometimes nursing homes or special care retirement centers seem to be
the only options. You do have a choice and Visiting Angels can help.
These options are to provide in-home assisted living care for your loved
ones without sacrificing their independence. Visiting Angels can
provide assisted living care in the home.
The services that are provided through
assisted living care providers have been enhanced over the years. These
services have changed from providing only medical support to providing
total in-home assisted living care for the elderly. It is no longer
necessary to have the simplest tasks postponed or left undone because
you were not able to find the time to assist yourself. In-home
assisted living care providers can help with simple tasks on a daily,
weekly or at need basis.
Assisted living care providers are
professionally trained and well screened non-medical caregivers.
Assisted living care services range from simple companion care to daily
chores like meal assistance, hygiene assistance, light housekeeping,
medicine monitoring, and errand transportation to name a few. The best
thing about assisted living care services is that you are in control and
through open communication can easily monitor services provided.
Assisted living care caregivers are available on a regular schedule or
on demand given a short lead time.
The reality of caring for our loved ones
is that it can be overwhelming at times and we don’t have to go it
alone. The cost of in-home assisted living care is far more affordable
compared to an assisted living facility. Visiting Angels is the
family alternative to assisted living facilities and nursing homes.
