5 Myths About Elder Care in Reseda

As an elder care agency serving Reseda, CA, Visiting Angels® Reseda knows the world of home care can be complicated for those new to it. There is so much information available that it can be tough to discern whether it's the right option for your aging loved one. On top of that, there are many misconceptions that can cause you to think twice about it.

But at Visiting Angels Reseda, we're here to help. Over the years, we've worked with families all over Reseda, North Hollywood, San Fernando Valley, and many nearby areas providing compassionate, non-medical elder care services. As a result, we understand the common concerns and questions, often helping families and individuals separate the facts from fiction.

If you're just starting out in the process, here are a few common myths you may have heard – and the reality behind each:

Elder care isn't for someone with basic needs. Elder care from Visiting Angels Reseda is designed to meet a wide range of needs. That means it's right for those who require basic assistance – like with housekeeping and personal care tasks. Yet, it's also a good solution for those with more in-depth care needs, such as those suffering from Alzheimer's. 

Elder care is a temporary solution. Elder care from Visiting Angels Reseda is available for however long it's needed. It's a helpful option in the short-term, for instance, after a loved one is discharged from the hospital. But it can also be provided on a long-term basis, whether every day, during evenings, on weekends, and even over holidays. 

Elder care is expensive. Elder care is often an affordable option for many families. At Visiting Angels Reseda, we always keep budget in mind when designing custom care plans for our clients. This way, your loved one can get the help and support that's needed, all in a way that respects your budget.

Elder caregivers don't really care. We carefully vet each candidate during a process that includes thorough background checks. We also look for a strong history of employment in elder care, as well as a record of volunteer service. The individuals we do hire are those who are not only professional, but compassionate and dedicated, too. 

Elder care should be provided by family. If you have the time and energy, then providing elder care is certainly an option. Unfortunately, most families don't – which is why they call in Visiting Angels Reseda for elder care. They know their loved one will be in the best hands possible, receiving custom-designed care and support.
