Q: What does the term "aging in place" mean?
Aging in place simply means aging at home or in the home of a family member. Sometimes, the term can mean the ability to stay in an assisted living facility as well.
Q: Do you provide services in assisted living facilities?
Yes! Our services can be provided in assisted living facilities when clients need extra care or attention to remain independent.
Q: How quickly can in-home care services for seniors be provided/started?
At Visiting Angels San Diego, we can start caring for a client in as little as 48 hours. Our services can sometimes even be provided on the very same day care is requested. We understand that emergency situations happen and we do whatever we can to accommodate the requests of the families we serve.
Q: Can I change the schedule if I have appointments to keep?
Yes, you can make changes to the schedule, but please bear in mind that you must provide us with at least one week’s notice. The schedule of care should always work for the family, not the care agency. With us, your needs always come first, so you can rest assured that we will go out of our way to make sure you are happy with the schedule.
Q: How do I get started with Visiting Angels San Diego?
Getting started with our in-home care services for seniors is simple. When you reach out to our office at 619-432-4159, we will arrange for a care coordinator to visit your home and perform a detailed care consultation. The consultation is free of charge and comes with no obligations. During the assessment, we will develop a plan and schedule of care for your parent and if approved, we will proceed to match them with the right caregiver. After you meet and approve the care provider, they will start caring for your loved one.
