Home Care Solutions for Elderly Veterans in San Rafael, CA

Learn more about how in-home care from Visiting Angels helps veterans in San Rafael, CA age safely and comfortably in place

If your elderly loved one is a U.S. military veteran, they have done so much to protect this country, as well as provided care and support for you over the years. As they age, they will develop mobility and cognitive issues that will make living on their own difficult. Many families assume that nursing homes or assisted living facilities are the only options when this happens. But with in-home senior care from Visiting Angels, your loved one can continue living in their own home for as long as they wish.

How Can Home Care Services Help My Loved One?

Despite age-related issues, many seniors value their independence and wish to continue living out their golden years in their own home. Visiting Angels can make that wish a reality by providing personalized care.

Visiting Angels specializes in providing assistance with everyday activities. Our goal is to help seniors get the support they need to stay safe, comfortable and happy at home. Our caregivers can assist your loved one with:

  • Planning and preparing meals
  • Doing dishes, laundry and other light housekeeping
  • Bathing, getting dressed and grooming
  • Getting from room to room
  • Running errands
  • Toileting and incontinence care
  • Feeding assistance
  • Medication reminders
  • And more

Unlike other home care agencies, Visiting Angels personalizes each care plan to fit every client’s unique needs. Whether your loved one just needs a caregiver to visit for a couple hours a day or needs advanced care to deal with symptoms of dementia or Alzheimer’s, you can rest assured that the care your loved one needs is the care they receive. Out commitment to providing top-quality care for our clients – including veterans and surviving spouses – has made us the leading agency for seniors in San Rafael, Corte Madera, Mill Valley, Belvedere and surrounding communities throughout Marin, Central Contra Costa, Central Alameda and Northwest San Joaquin Counties in California.

How Can I Afford the Care My Loved One Needs?

Did you know that your loved one’s monthly pension can help them afford the in-home care they need? A benefit called Aid and Attendance can be added to your loved one’s monthly pension from the VA in order to help them offset the cost of care.

Elderly veterans and surviving spouses can quality for Aid and Attendance if they:

  • Require assistance with activities of daily living
  • Are bedridden or unable to move without assistance
  • Are a patient in a nursing home
  • Have specific vision limitations

If you’re unsure whether your loved one is eligible, our care coordinators can provide guidance on determining whether they can receive Aid and Attendance benefits.

What Are Veteran Community Partnerships?

Veteran Community Partnerships (VCPs) help veteran and caregivers access valuable options and resources for care. A VCP helps caregivers, veterans, VA facilities community health providers and home care agencies work together to provide the support and services our veterans need.

Allison Larking, one of our Visiting Angels team member and Regional Director of Business Development & Strategic Partnerships, SF Bay Area, is the Chairperson for the East Bay Veterans Community Partnership (EBVCP). The EBVCP was created to help raise awareness of issues concerning elderly veterans and establishing relationships between veterans and members of the community. They also provide training and education on topics related to care for veterans.
