When Can Care Begin?
Before care can start, we suggest you and your loved one set up a free, in-home consultation. One of our care coordinators will come to your loved one’s home to talk about scheduling, care requirements, personal care, and answer any questions you and your loved one might have. After this free, no-obligation consultation, care can generally begin within two days. However, in some cases, at home care for the elderly can begin on the same day as the consultation.
Can Visiting Angels of Lynchburg Provide Care to Seniors in Assisted Living?
Absolutely. Many families often find that assisted living facilities do not provide the assistance their loved one requires. When this is the case, we send a compassionate and professional caregiver to help your loved one stay independent in assisted living.
Can I Change the Care Schedule?
Changing the care schedule is easy, even if you already have appointments scheduled. We believe in making our schedule work for you, not the other way around. Just try let us know a week in advance if you must make a change to your loved one’s schedule.
