Comforting End of Life Care for Seniors and Families in Richmond, VA and Surrounding Areas

End of life care services from Visiting Angels offer much-needed support for families in Richmond, VA and surrounding areas when their senior loved ones are approaching the end of their life

When a loved one is given a limited life expectancy, they often require some form of specialized in-home care and in the majority of situations, it is up to family members to take on these responsibilities. However, you do not have to go through this alone. At Visiting Angels Richmond, we provide compassionate in-home senior care to assist and support families during the end of life transition. Our loving caregivers will do whatever it takes to keep your loved one as comfortable as possible in the final months and weeks of their life.

Although we do not provide hospice care, our caregivers can work along hospice care providers. Visiting Angels Richmond will also support you and your family during this difficult time.

How End of Life Care Helps Families in Richmond and Surrounding Communities

This service is offered through Life Care Navigation – a collection of essential senior care services. We outlined our approach to care in a manual called Practical Care Tips for End of Life – a comprehensive program designed to provide professional caregivers with the information needed to adequately assist clients and their families through the end of life transition.

Under these guidelines, our Angel companions – how we call our caregivers – offer a client-focused approach to end of life care. This means that care within this model is centered around Mom or Dad’s comfort and well-being.

Our compassionate caregivers offer meaningful care and support to help minimize discomfort and assist with personal hygiene needs including:

  • Bathing
  • Dressing
  • Grooming
  • Toileting
  • And more

Most importantly, our loving caregivers will be there for your loved one, to offer a comforting companionship and help alleviate feelings of loneliness, stress and anxiety.

During this time, we also make sure that family caregivers can get enough respite and assistance with a number of activities such as basic housekeeping, meal preparation, laundering, grocery shopping or running errands. We will offer your family emotional support and a helping hand whenever you need us.
