Frequently Asked Questions About Senior Care Services from Visiting Angels Dallas

The experienced home care providers at Visiting Angels in Dallas, TX, can answer any questions you may have about senior care services for your loved one

Q. What kind of senior home care services does Visiting Angels provide?

A: In order to allow our clients to stay at home safely, we provide companion care as well as personal care services. A lot of seniors need help with everyday activities, which puts their ability to age in place into question. However, with the help of our trained caregivers, our clients are able to continue living in their own home. Our senior care services include running errands, light housekeeping, fall prevention, grooming and bathing assistance, meal preparation and medication reminders.

Q: What do you mean by "aging in place"?

A: This is a term we use to refer to the ability of any person to grow old in their own home, instead of moving to a nursing facility. Sometimes it is also used to describe the ability of a senior to stay in an assisted living facility with some extra help.

Q: Do you provide senior care services in assisted living facilities?

A: Yes, we do! Sometimes seniors realize that the care provided in assisted living facilities is not meeting all of their needs. That is where we step in. In order to allow seniors who live in these facilities to remain independent, we provide a caregiver to make this possible. Your loved one can hire one of our caregivers to provide quality care for them in an assisted living facility or a nursing home.

Q: How quickly can senior home care services be provided?

A: Usually we provide services within a 48-hour period, and often the same day.

Q: Can the schedule be changed?

A: We only need one week's notice and we are able to make any schedule changes necessary. With Visiting Angels Dallas, you come first. We are here to do anything in our power to make the schedule work for you and your family.

We understand that choosing home care services is an important decision, which is why we offer complimentary in-home consultations. Members of our staff can visit you and conduct a free assessment. After getting acquainted with you and your needs, we will match you with caregivers who have the skills, personality and availability to assist you.
