Around-the-Clock Live-In Care for Seniors in Allen, TX

Visiting Angels provides 24-hour home care and live-in services for seniors in Allen and surrounding areas in Collin County, TX

Live-in care can be a practical option for adults who have chronic diseases or debilitating injuries and need some relief from the pain and discomfort that they experience. Our caregivers are able to provide meaningful assistance with managing discomfort and physical ailments. But perhaps most beneficial is the companionship and support caregivers can offer on a daily basis.

When a loved one experiences an unexpected trauma, such as a stroke or fall, families often find themselves in need of immediate help. Even loved ones with dementia or Alzheimer's disease, who's abilities deteriorate overtime, may suddenly require more help than you alone can provide. Live-in or 24-hour home care from Visiting Angels McKinney can provide the daily living assistance and reliable support you and your family need. Your loved one will also benefit from professional, familiar caregivers being on-hand to assist with mobility, personal care, and other needs at any time of night or day.

When transitioning to live-in care, you should know these three things:

1. It is Different Than Hospice Care

Live-in services are often seen as being similar to hospice care, but they are different. The goal of home care is to treat those with chronic conditions in hope that they will recover. Live-in care often supports the care plan of a doctor or physical therapist. Our caregivers can help with preparing meals, medication reminders, mobility assistance and getting to follow-up appointments. Adjusting to new physical or cognitive limitations due to illness, injury or age is a long-term process. Our caregivers can be there for support every step of the way.

Hospice care is not focused on recovery. This type of care is typically is for those who have less than six months to live and only aims to make those months as comfortable as possible.

2. Live-In Care Meets More Than Physical Needs

Yes, physical needs are at the forefront of in-home care services and will be monitored; however, they are not the only needs that your loved one has. Our compassionate caregivers can provide the companionship, conversation, and emotional support your loved one needs to truly thrive at home.

Loss of physical or mental abilities is a difficult and often scary adjustment for seniors. Simply taking their medications and completing physical therapy as prescribed does not ensure complete wellness. Our caregivers will help keep your loved one engaged, active, and content. Preventing isolation and loneliness can be incredibly beneficial for aging adults, especially those who are dealing with other changes and challenges. A companion caregiver can offer regularity, routine, and support.

3. Visiting Angels Keeps Your Family Involved

When it comes to around-the-clock care, our senior care services keep families involved. If you live near your loved one in Allen, Plano, Frisco or McKinney areas, we encourage you to stop by your loved one's home and visit as normal. Our caregivers are there to provide the daily living assistance your loved one needs so you can focus on spending quality time together. Unlike nursing homes or assisted living facilities, there are no visiting hours. Your senior loved one can enjoy remaining in the comfort of their home while receiving the care they need.
