Our Home Care Process in Niles

Our process begins by getting to know more about your loved one's condition and overall situation. To do this, we'll lead your family through the following steps: 

  • Making contact - The first step is actually yours to take. Call Visiting Angels Chicago at (773) 481-9515 to express your interest in home care, tell us a bit about your loved one, and find out about our services and rates.
  • Conducting our assessment - After the initial call, we'll arrange a no-cost, in person consultation where we can talk to your loved one, learn more about their interests, and gain a fuller understanding of their needs. We can also answer questions about our home care services and consult any other family members. 
  • Drafting a care plan - We customize our care for each client we serve, so during our consultation we can create a personalized plan that best serves your family. 
  • Finding the right care professional - Once we've learned more about your family and created a care plan, we'll decide which one of our caregivers could be the best fit for your needs. If you like, we can arrange for you to meet them before care begins to ensure that everyone is happy with our choice.

Whether you've just noticed your loved one is avoiding certain basic tasks, or you've already stepped in to help out around the house, our personal care services can help. Personal care is the cornerstone of services and covers all the routine daily tasks that may now be a challenge.

Depending on your loved one's needs and limitations, our caregivers can provide the following support:

  • Creating meal plans and preparing meals
  • Keeping track of medication schedules
  • Light housework including dishes and laundry
  • Grocery shopping and errands
  • Bathing, toileting, and dressing aid
  • Physical assistance while walking or transferring
  • Escorting to appointments


Companion and Social Care in Niles

Either due to physical limitations, cognitive decline, or a shrinking social circle, many seniors experience prolonged loneliness. This, unfortunately, is linked to depression, self-neglect, and poorer health outcomes.

To help your loved one enjoy a higher quality of life, we can provide frequent, engaging companionship. If your family member isn't comfortable with video chat, social media, or messaging apps, we can also help them embrace these tools to keep in touch.  

End of Life Care 

We provide this delicate service for clients who are nearing the end of life transition, as well as their families. If your loved one is in this position, we can make them as comfortable as possible and assist with any tasks required, so your family can share some treasured time together. 

Palliative Care 

If your relative has been diagnosed with a serious illness, whatever their age or the time that remains, we can ease their discomfort and fortify them for the challenges ahead. Our palliative care includes physical, social, emotional, and spiritual support with an emphasis on all of life's joys. 

Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia Care in Niles

Confusion and memory loss are among the most common symptoms of Alzheimer's disease and other types of dementia. These symptoms can make it more difficult for seniors to live on their own, as they may neglect their needs or even wander off from home.

We offer specialized support including medication reminders, meal preparation, wandering prevention, and transportation. Through our frequent visits, we can also keep an eye on your loved one's condition over time.

Our Ready-Set-Go Home Program

Many seniors experience complications after a hospital stay, often because they don't receive adequate follow-up care. We created the Ready-Set-Go Home program to prevent hospital readmissions by making sure our clients have support at every step. Our care team will be there to advocate for your loved one at the hospital, go over their discharge instructions, and assist with whatever they need at home.

Our Safe & Steady Fall Prevention Program

Do you worry about your loved one's fall risk at home? A fall can take a severe toll on their physical health and ongoing independence, which is why we devised our Safe & Steady fall prevention program.

We can determine your relative's risk factors and check their home for features that may increase risk. Our care professionals can suggest minor modifications to make your loved one's home more fall-proof. If mobility is an issue, they can also offer walking support.
