How to Get Started with Elder Care Services from Visiting Angels

Visiting Angels can help you set up elder care services for your parent or relative in Midlothian, Richmond, Henrico and surrounding VA communities

At Visiting Angels Richmond VA, we believe that there is no better way to start with senior care services than to talk with the client and their family about their needs. During this meeting, our care coordinator will review the care your loved one needs, discuss any schedule requests or other specific requests of your family, and answer all your questions or concerns.

While the point of the meeting is to properly assess your loved one's needs, it is also an excellent opportunity for you to get to learn more about our home care agency, including our mission, values, goals and elder care services that we offer. It is important to note that if you feel overwhelmed with all the information you receive during the meeting, our care coordinator can provide you with recommendations based on our experience in different situations.

We are here to help and support you every step of the way, so we encourage you to talk to us about your fears and doubts, so that we could provide you with all the information you need to gain peace of mind.

How Visiting Angels Helps Families Arrange Elder Care Services

Let us take a look at the topics most commonly discussed during initial meetings:

  • Specific requests related to your loved one's physical needs, including activities such as bathing and grooming, dressing, meal preparation and special diets, toileting and incontinence and more.
  • Review your loved one's schedule, including when they go to sleep and wake up, eat their meals and take their medications.
  • Specific requests in regards to your loved one's social and emotional needs, including services such as interaction, social activities, conversation, companionship, appointments and more.
  • Specific requests regarding homemaking tasks like meal preparation, grocery shopping, light housekeeping, running errands and other senior care services.
  • Logistics of your loved one’s schedule, how to work with scheduling changes, access to the home and more.

If you would like to proceed with our elder care services at that point, our care coordinator will complete the care plan, determine a schedule of care and coordinate a meeting with compatible caregivers, where you get to select a caregiver for your loved one.

To talk to one of our friendly care coordinators and schedule your free in-home consultation whenever it works best for you and your family, please give our office in Midlothian, VA a call today. We look forward to meeting you and determining the best type of in-home care for your loved one.
