About Our Home Care Services in La Mesa

Our home care can take whatever form your loved one needs to live comfortably — and whatever you need for greater peace of mind. Whether it's occasional help with errands or around-the-clock monitoring and support, our care professionals are here to help. 

Depending on the situation, our caregivers can help with any of the following:

  • Meaningful companionship
  • Routine housework
  • Grocery shopping and errands
  • Meal plans and preparation
  • Medication reminders
  • Using the restroom, bathing, and getting dressed or changed
  • Walking at home and between locations

How We Approach Custom Home Care in La Mesa

To provide the greatest possible improvement and relief, your loved one's home care should be tailored to their needs and those of your family. Since these needs are bound to change over time, your home care should be adaptable too. 

At Visiting Angels La Mesa, we offer flexible home care services that are personalized for every family we serve. Our caregivers are available 24 hours a day, every day, so we can accommodate any schedule.

To create your family's custom care plan, we'll take you through the following process:

  • Initial call — Contact our office to learn about our services, talk about your loved one's potential needs, and discuss rates. At this point, we can schedule a no-cost consultation.
  • Consultation — A care professional can visit your loved one's home to conduct an in-depth assessment of their needs, preferences, and care situation, including the family members involved. This will provide the framework for your loved one's care plan.
  • Plan building — We'll establish a custom home care plan and ideal care schedule, so your family receives the right support for your current needs, with the understanding that we can monitor your loved one's condition and adapt to any changes.
  • Caregiver selection and approval — We'll determine which caregiver would be the best fit based on their personality, schedule, and abilities. We can then set up a meeting, so your family can give your approval. 

What is Respite Care?

While it may be easy to keep up with your loved one's needs at first, caregiving can quickly become too much to handle without help. We provide temporary respite care, so family caregivers can rest without worrying about their relative.

What is Personal Care? 

Have you noticed that your elderly parent is having a harder time with household tasks? Maybe you've noticed more clutter around the house than before, or noticed that your loved one looks a bit disheveled. Many aspects of aging make routine tasks much harder, but our personal care services can help.

As part of our care, our caregivers can step in to help with the simple necessities of life your loved one is struggling to manage. This includes:

  • Bathing and dressing
  • Cooking
  • Tidying up
  • Support while walking
  • Reminders for prescriptions
  • Getting groceries

Providing Companion Care and Social Care

Our social circles tend to get smaller as we get older, but if your loved one is too isolated, it may affect their health. Social isolation contributes to depression and self-neglect, so we offer our companion care and social care services.

With our companion care, your loved one can receive the physical help they need while benefiting from the company and conversation of our friendly caregivers. Over time, your family member may come to see their caregiver as a dear and welcome friend.

To help your loved one stay connected to friends and family they can't see in person, we can teach them how to use video chat and other technologies with confidence.

Our Specialized Alzheimer's Care and Dementia Care

Seniors who are grappling with cognitive decline can find it harder to adapt to new surroundings. We offer specialized support to help clients with Alzheimer's disease and other dementia types remain in their homes safely.

Dementia care or Alzheimer's care can include the following:

  • Reminders for medications and appointments
  • Regular mental stimulation
  • Wandering prevention
  • Preparing regular meals
  • Monitoring for changes in condition
  • Creating as calm an environment as possible

Our Fall Prevention Support

As well as helping your loved one with their current challenges, our care also includes preventative care. Falls are a serious concern among older adults. More than 25% of older adults fall per year, which can lead to a major injury. To help reduce your relative's fall risk — and help them feel safer in their own home — we created our Safe & Steady Fall Prevention Program.

Our care professionals can help you identify and address potential risk factors. For example, if your relative has poor eyesight, we may recommend extra lighting or distinct markings on the edge of any steps in their home. We can also include walking support, tidying up clutter, and other services to their care plan.

Our Program to Reduce Hospital Readmissions

Whether due to unclear discharge instructions, poor follow-up, or an overall lack of support, many seniors who are hospitalized end up being readmitted within their first month home.

We address this common issue with our Ready-Set-Go Home Program. We can help you clarify your loved one's care needs while they're still in the hospital, assist your loved one when they get home, and look out for any possible complications.

Our Palliative and End of Life Care Options

If someone you love is struggling with a complex medical issue, or approaching the end of life transition, our care professionals can help ease their discomfort and give your family the chance to spend meaningful time together.

While our end of life care is available to support families at this difficult time of transition, our palliative care is open for anyone with a serious condition who could benefit from spiritual, physical, cognitive, and social support — no matter their life expectancy.
