How to Get Started with Home Care Assistance in Pottstown, PA and the Surrounding Area

Getting Started with Home Care Assistance in Pottstown, Sanatoga, Chester Springs, Gilbertsville, and Surrounding Areas

To provide the best care possible for your loved one  in Pottstown, Sanatoga, Chester Springs, Gilbertsville, or the surrounding area a Visiting Angels of Pottstown care coordinator schedules an initial meeting with the client and family. At this first meeting, we will review the type and amount of home care assistance required, preferred care giving schedule, address specific requests from seniors and their family members, and answer any questions regarding home care.

This first visit is an excellent chance for us to get to know each other and a good time to bring up any concerns you may have. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, don’t worry – our Visiting Angels of Pottstown team has extensive experience when it comes to home care assistance and elder care, so we can make recommendations about what may work best in certain situations.

Initial Meetings: What to Expect

During an initial meeting, we normally address the following topics:

Physical needs: Specific physical needs, such as bathing, hygiene, grooming, dressing, mobility, incontinence, meals and diet are reviewed.

Scheduling: What your loved one’s sleep, eating, and medicine schedules are.

Emotional Needs: We consider emotional needs, such as conversation, companionship, social interaction, activities, and appointments.

Assistance with Daily Tasks: Seeing what help is needed with everyday tasks, such as light housekeeping, picking up groceries, preparation of meals, laundry, and linens.

Logistics: Another essential factor to address is general logistics, such as scheduling, documentation, access to the home, and the finer details on how to handle scheduling changes.

Do You Or A Loved One Need Assistance?

At the initial meeting and assessment, if you would like to proceed with home care assistance, we would then finalize your care plan, establish a care giving schedule, schedule a nurse visit, and coordinate a meeting with your chosen care provider.
