Compassionate In-Home Dementia Care for Seniors in Richmond, VA and Nearby Communities
If your senior loved one is diagnosed with dementia, they will need care, support and love from their family and friends. They will also need to be in familiar surroundings. As the time goes by, your loved one will show a need for your help even more. This won’t be easy, and in some moments you will feel overwhelmed and worried about your loved one.
You want to give them the best care possible, but what they need is above your skills and knowledge. Naturally, as you start noticing that the level of care you provide isn’t enough, you might be afraid that your loved one will have to go into a nursing facility.
"The caregivers are caring and understanding with my mom and her dementia."
- Eileen S.

Special Training for Our Caregivers at Our Richmond Office
The Teepa Snow Positive Approach to Care (PAC) training is a requirement for all Visiting Angels of Richmond caregivers. This is not something that is required on a federal or state level, but is something we have deemed to be essential for the well-being of our senior clients. Not only does the PAC training ensure that our caregivers are well-prepared to care for seniors with a variety of needs, but it also reassures seniors and their families that they are receiving the best possible dementia care.
