Q. What exactly does aging in place mean?

A. “Aging in place” simply means allowing a senior to live where they’d be more comfortable, which is often their home. Places like assisted living facilities and a nursing home would be the opposite of aging in place. When seniors make that decision to age in place, they often need more support to do so.

Q. Can you provide care to those living in assisted living facilities?                     

A. Yes. We’re more than happy to help your loved one achieve independence while they’re living in an assisted living facility. Be sure to research whether your particular state will allow you to utilize elderly assistance services while they’re living in a nursing home or an assisted living facility.

Q. If an appointment comes up, can I change the schedule?

A. Absolutely, all we’d need is a minimum of one week’s notice. Making sure your needs and wants are being catered to is our primary concern. We at Visiting Angels of Gilford do all that we can to provide you with an ideal schedule that fits your life.

Q. How quickly can we receive home care services?

A. Often, services can be offered the same day that they are requested. In rare cases, it may take up to 48 hours.

Q. How do I contact you for more information about your eldercare services?

A. Be sure to call Visiting Angels of Gilford at (603) 215-7103 to speak with an experienced care coordinator. We will set you up with a free in-home meeting with one of our staff members.
