How to Get Started with Elder Care Services in Jacksonville

There’s nothing you trust more than the work you’ve done with your own two hands. That’s why, when it comes to the care of a loved one, there is no one you trust more than yourself. But what about when you can’t be there? Sometimes life gets in the way and, when it does, you can call the in-home elder care experts at Visiting Angels Jacksonville. With professional skill and a gentle touch, we’ll care for your parent, grandparent, or other elderly loved one as if they were our very own.

Getting Started with Elder Care

When you think of your elderly relative’s needs, what comes to mind first? Do they have trouble remembering names, dates, and appointments? Or do trembling hands make tasks like buttoning shirts or zipping up coats particularly difficult? Whatever their needs, a companion caregiver can help with a patient, guiding hand.

When you call our Jacksonville office to get started with elder care services, our first task is to meet with you to learn about your needs. Our initial care consultations are held in the privacy of your home or your loved one’s home. During this meeting we’ll discuss needs, schedules, and other topics related to the construction of a customized care plan. Some of the topics we’ll cover in this meeting include:

  • Your loved one’s physical needs related to grooming, dressing, mobility, diet, and incontinence.
  • Your loved one’s current and preferred schedule and routines.
  • Needs related to social interaction including favorite activities, regular appointments and companionship.
  • Assistance required around the home including preparing meals, grocery shopping, laundry, changing linens, and other light housekeeping tasks.
  • Procedural concerns including access to the home, scheduling of caregiver visits, choosing a caregiver, and more.

Once you’ve decided to move forward with our elder care services, this information will be formulated into a custom care plan that will meet your loved one’s needs.
