When a loved one needs help to continue living independently, you do everything you can to make that happen. But what if you can’t be there as often as you’re needed? That’s where Visiting Angels® Sanford can help. Our referrals for caregiver services in Longwood, Winter Springs, Oviedo, and Altamonte Springs, FL help seniors receive the care and support they need to remain independent. 

How Caregiver Services in Longwood Help Seniors

When a loved one needs more care than you can give to continue living safely in their home, it can be a time of great concern for the whole family. And while assisted living facilities are an option, they can be expensive, and many seniors would prefer to retain their independent lifestyles for as long as possible. At Visiting Angels Sanford, we help seniors enjoy their golden years at home with referrals for caregiver services in the Longwood area. You tell us what kind of care your loved one needs, and we refer caregivers from our professional nurse registry. 

Here are just a few of the ways caregivers from our referral network can help your loved one:

  • Personal care - Daily activities like dressing, shaving, and putting on makeup can be difficult for seniors recovering from an illness or living with limited mobility. Caregivers we refer can help your loved one with a variety of personal hygiene needs, including toileting, grooming, and bathing. 
  • Mobility - From help navigating a staircase to getting up from a favorite easy chair, caregivers can help your loved one remain active. 
  • Meal planning and preparation - This can include everything from cooking meals and cleaning up to helping your loved one cook safely by monitoring the use of appliances, opening cans, and assisting as needed.  
  • Companionship - Caregivers can ease feelings of isolation with company and conversation.
