What Services Does Visiting Angels San Rafael Provide?

Visiting Angels San Rafael provides a range of personalized in-home care services throughout Marin County. Including both companion care and personal care, our home care services help seniors and adults who need assistance to maintain comfort and independence at home. We can assist your loved one with light housekeeping, meal preparation, errands, shopping, hygiene, mobility and many other daily tasks. Joyful companionship is a part of all our care plans, too.

What Does "Aging in Place" Mean?

Aging in place is a term used to describe aging at home or in the home of a close family member. At Visiting Angels San Rafael, we make aging in place possible with our in-home health care services. Care provided in homes is the opposite of facilitated care provided in nursing homes or assisted living facilities.

Does Visiting Angels San Rafael Provide Services in Assisted Living Facilities?

Yes. Even though our focus is on helping seniors age in place, we understand that everyone’s needs are different and that some older adults may prefer to move to an assisted living facility. When a senior in such an institution, however, would like to receive more personalized care or could benefit from some extra attention, our agency is happy to help.

How Quickly Can Home Care Services Start?

Our services are generally provided within 48 hours of receiving a request for care, but we can sometimes start providing our in-home health care services the very same day.

Can I Change the Home Care Schedule If I Have Appointments to Keep?

Yes. At Visiting Angels San Rafael, your needs and schedule always come first and we strive to make any necessary changes to schedules as soon as possible. Schedule changes need to be requested with as little as one week’s notice.

How Do I Start In-Home Health Care Services with Visiting Angels San Rafael?

If you would like to get started with our in-home care services, we encourage you to contact our San Rafael, CA office and we will arrange for a care coordinator to visit your loved one’s home, get to know their needs better, answer your questions, and start working on a personalized care plan. If you are satisfied with the proposed plan, we will then identify the best caregiver for your parent and schedule your meeting with them. When you approve of the care provider, they can immediately begin caring for your loved one.
