Seven Ways Private Home Care Services Help Seniors in Littleton, CO and Surrounding Areas Remain Independent

For seniors living in Littleton, Parker, Englewood, Centennial and surrounding areas in Colorado, private home care services from Visiting Angels can provide the support they need to remain at home and remain independent

Choosing care for your senior loved one can be a lengthy and tiresome process. Not only do you have to analyze the care options, but you also have to consider your loved one’s health needs and preferences. In addition, you have to review your financial situation to understand what kind of services you can afford.

Many families find themselves stuck between choosing in-home senior care and care in a nursing home or assisted living facility. To help you through this difficult process, we have provided a guide to the benefits of private home care.

Why Do Seniors Prefer Private Home Care?

At Visiting Angels Littleton, we believe that all seniors deserve quality care, respect and comfort. Learn more about the benefits of in-home senior care below.

Top Seven Benefits

  1. Seniors receive care at home. With private home care services, your loved one can get the care they need in the comfort and privacy of their own home.
  2. Seniors receive customized care. At Visiting Angels Littleton, we offer completely customizable care and care schedules. Your loved one will have all their care needs met every day at any time for as long as they require.
  3. Seniors receive one-on-one support from dedicated caregivers. With private home care, your loved one will have a caregiver who will form meaningful and respectful relationships with them. Building these relationships entails learning about your loved one’s likes, dislikes, hobbies and interests. This helps caregivers communicate more effectively with their clients and anticipate your loved one’s needs.
  4. Home care is less expensive. Private home care is usually more affordable than other senior care options. This is because you will only need to pay for the services your loved one truly needs rather than paying for a “one size fits all” package of services.
  5. Seniors stay safe. Choosing in-home senior care for your loved one means limiting their exposure to dangerous diseases or viruses like COVID-19. Our caregivers can help your loved one run errands so they can stay inside as much as possible, teaching them how to use social media to communicate with friends and family while social distancing and so much more.
  6. Seniors maintain their privacy. Your loved one can enjoy their privacy when you choose in-home senior care from Visiting Angels Littleton. Your loved one can use the space in their home as they wish. Our caregivers are trained to provide care when clients need it and will give your loved one space upon request.
  7. Seniors remain independent. When receiving care at home, seniors receive assistance with the activities that are more difficult for them; however, they still are able to participate in activities they enjoy.
