Q: What does the term “aging in place” mean?
A: Aging in place refers to the ability of a senior to age in their home or in the family home for as long as possible. It would be the opposite of staying in a place such as a nursing home or an assisted living facility. In some cases, it may mean the ability of a senior to stay in their assisted living facility. It completely depends on what makes the seniors the most comfortable.
Q: Do you provide services in assisted living facilities?
A: Yes we do! Some of our clients believe that the services available at assisted living facilities don’t allow them to maintain their dignity and independence. At Visiting Angels, we can step in to fill in those gaps. But in some states, you aren’t allowed to hire private help for an assisted living facility. Be sure to research the rules in your state beforehand.
Q: How quickly can senior home care services be started?
A: Usually, senior home care services can be started within a 48-hour period. Sometimes, services can be started on the same day they were requested.
Q: How easily can I change the schedule?
A: Schedule changes can be done with as little as a week’s notice. We want to make sure that your schedule caters to your life as easily as possible, and we’ll do all that we can to follow your requests.
