Frequestly Asked At Home Care Questions

Q. What kind of services do you provide?

A: Visiting Angels Newington provides a number of non-medical at home care services, ranging from personal care and companion care to specialized care solutions such as dementia care and end of life care. Our senior care services are designed to help seniors and older adults to safely remain at home and maintain their dignity as they age. Some of the services we offer include fall prevention, medication reminders, light housekeeping, meal preparation, assistance with personal care, and running errands.

Q: What does the term "aging in place" mean?

A: Aging in place is the ability to grow old in one's home instead of relocating to a nursing home or other kind of senior facility. With Visiting Angels, your loved one can continue living at home no matter what care needs they may have. Receiving care at home comes with a myriad of benefits and doesn't require your loved one to make any changes to their routine, so they can enjoy their golden years as they see fit.

Q: Do you provide services in assisted living facilities?

A:  Yes. Sometimes, seniors need more assistance than what they are getting in an assisted living facility. To maximize independence in older adults living at assisted living facilities, we can provide qualified caregivers to help out with daily tasks.

Q: How quickly can home care services be provided/started?

A:  At Visiting Angels Newington, our goal is to provide you with at home care of the highest quality whenever you need it. We can start caring for your loved one within 24 hours after you contact us. In some cases, we can even begin working the same day.

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

A:  Yes, but please keep in mind that you need to notify us of any changes one week in advance. Our caregiving philosophy is to make the schedule work for your loved one, not our agency. With us, you always come first. Our at home care services are built around your schedule and routine to cause as little disruption to your life as possible. We will do everything we can to accommodate your every need.

Q: How do I start home care services with Visiting Angels Newington?

A: To find a caregiver in your area, you can use our office locator or call our office. Our care coordinators will visit your loved one's home and perform a free, no-obligation assessment. We will then, together with your family, build an appropriate at home care plan for your loved one and select caregivers who have the knowledge and skills to provide your parent with the exact type and level of care they need. You will then have the opportunity to talk to those caregivers and choose the ones you think are ideal for your family. After that, all that's left is for us to start working for your loved one!
