Visiting Angels Northern Kentucky: What is Home Care?

If you are the adult child of elderly parents, you may find your loved ones in need of personal care and assistance at home. It is a normal part of aging to slow down and it's not uncommon for loved ones to need help. If your elderly mother or father begins to require regular assistance, or more than you are able to provide, professional help is available. Visiting Angels® Northern Kentucky helps seniors throughout Florence, Covington, Independence, Erlanger, Fort Thomas, Burlington, Newport, and the surrounding communities by providing compassionate home care.
