Home Care in Portland: Facilitating Aging in Place

As your loved one continues to age at home, it may become clear they are struggling with daily tasks and activities. There are many ways you can tell if it is time to get your loved one in-home care. At Visiting Angels® Portland, we are here to support you and your loved one during this time, offering our home care services to make their everyday life more manageable and to give you peace of mind.

When is it Time for Home Care in Portland?

One of the signs you can look for is a lapse in your loved one's hygiene or self-care. This can be evident in the fact that they aren't bathing or showering or in their dirty or unkempt clothing. These changes are often caused by your loved one's inability to complete tasks or if they feel unsafe taking a bath or shower.

The most important thing you can do at this time is bring it up to your loved one and discuss the challenges they are facing at home. This conversation can often be disconcerting for seniors, as they may feel like they are losing their independence. You can assure your loved one that you want the best for them and that many care options will allow them to retain their independence and normal life at home.

At Visiting Angels Portland, we are here to guide you and your loved one through the process of getting home care. Our variety of services allow your loved one to age in place while getting the care and companionship they need. Our care services include the following:
