What Exactly is “Aging in Place”?

Aging in place is the ability of any person to grow old in the comfort of their own home or their family’s home. It is the opposite of institutional facilities like nursing homes. It also can mean the ability, with some additional help, to live in assisted living facilities as well.

Does Visiting Angels Rockford Provide Senior Care Services to Those Living in Assisted Living Facilities?

Yes, people sometimes find that the level of professional help in an assisted living facility may not be up to the level they need to remain independent. In these situations, Visiting Angels Rockford can provide a designated caregiver to provide elderly care services to that senior individual.

How Quickly Can In-Home Care Services Begin?

Oftentimes, our services can be provided with a 48-hour window but sometimes even the same day.

Can the Schedule be Modified If I Have Appointments to Keep?

You can make changes to your schedule of care that will be accommodated with as little as one week’s notice. Our goal is to make our in-home care services work for you and the family, and that means being flexible with how we schedule and adjust our schedule to meet yours.
