At Visiting Angels Loveland, our home care services are geared toward enabling older adults to get the support and attention they need to continue living in their preferred routine at home, no matter the diagnosis.
Our expert caregivers provide outstanding living assistance services in Loveland, Fort Collins, Greeley, Windsor and throughout Colorado's Northern Front Range, helping clients and families to combat the symptoms of chronic illnesses and make everyday life a little bit easier.
What Are Chronic Illnesses?
A chronic illness could be described as any persistent medical problem that lasts more than one year, is difficult to treat, and has a long-lasting impact on a person’s quality of life. The most common examples of chronic illnesses, especially in seniors, include arthritis, osteoporosis, type 2 diabetes, asthma, heart disease, as well as various types of cancer. Unfortunately, when a senior loved one is diagnosed with a chronic disease, standard in-home care may not be sufficient to help them maintain independence at home.
If you're taking care of a family member who has multiple chronic illnesses, it's no easy task to manage their symptoms while keeping yourself healthy as well. There are many symptoms that can arise for someone with multiple chronic illnesses, and it can be difficult to keep track of them all. Luckily, many of these symptoms are the same for many conditions, so you're likely familiar with several of them already. At Visiting Angels Loveland, our living assistance services can help your loved one manage these symptoms and help with daily tasks that may be difficult due to their symptoms.
