Frequently Asked Questions About Senior Care Services from Visiting Angels Littleton

Here are answers to some of the most common questions we receive about our senior care services in Littleton, CO and surrounding areas

What kind of services do you provide?

At Visiting Angels Littleton, we provide a wide range of assistive senior care services, including companion care, personal care, transitional care, respite care, dementia care and others. Our care plans are designed to provide aging adults with sufficient levels of care and assistance required to continue living safely at home.

Depending on the personal needs of each client we serve, most care plans are tailored to include a combination of light housekeeping, hygiene and bathing assistance, medication reminders, fall prevention, transportation and much more.

What does the term "aging in place" mean?

In the home care industry, aging in place refers to the ability of any individual to grow old in their own home or remain in the home of a family member. While aging in place is opposite to institutionalized care provided in facilities, it may in some cases refer to the ability to receive additional care while staying in an assisted living facility.

Do you provide senior care services in assisted living facilities?

Of course. For some people, the assistance provided in assisted living facilities is not sufficient to remain as independent as much as they would like to. When this is the case, Visiting Angels Littleton can provide a highly trained caregiver in those nursing homes or facilities where it is allowed to hire outside help.

How quickly can home care services be provided/started?

Our senior care services are typically provided within a 48-hour timeframe, but we always strive to start with care earlier, often the very same day.

Can I change the schedule if I have appointments to keep?

Yes, you can. Any changes in schedules are easily accomplished when you give us as little as one week’s notice. Our philosophy is to make the schedule work for the client, not the agency. At Visiting Angels Littleton, you and your needs always come first.

How do I start home care services with Visiting Angels Littleton?

All you need to do is get in touch with our Littleton, CO office and schedule a free in-home consultation where one of our friendly care directors will visit you and your loved one in their home. During this initial in-person meeting, we will carefully tailor a care plan best suiting your parent and establish a schedule of visits.

When you are satisfied with the plan, we will match you with a caregiver who has the skills, personality and availability to assist your loved one. Once you approve the match, they begin working for you.
