Learn more about the care services Visiting Angels offers:
- ALZHEIMER'S CARE
Visiting Angels will provide compassionate Alzheimer's assistance for your senior in the comfort of their home to help them remain in a familiar environment and maintain a sense of independence. As Alzheimer's progresses, Visiting Angels will adjust services to maintain optimal comfort, security, and quality of life.
- COMPANION CARE
Companion care focuses on daily tasks and activities your loved one may have trouble performing independently. Home care services include light housekeeping, meal planning and preparation, and assistance with doctor appointments. Visiting Angels will also engage your loved one in favorite activities, hobbies, and conversations to reduce the risk of social isolation.
- DEMENTIA CARE
At Visiting Angels, memory care is not limited to Alzheimer's disease. Dementia services include specialized assistance if your senior is living with another type of dementia, such as vascular dementia, frontotemporal dementia, Lewy body dementia, Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, Huntington's disease, or Parkinson's disease dementia. If you have a cherished one diagnosed with dementia, Visiting Angels can help them live at home happily.
- END-OF-LIFE CARE
Visiting Angels can support your entire family when a loved one nears the end of life by helping them remain comfortable through non-medical care and assistance. A professional caregiver can help reduce stress on your family so you can spend more time with your loved one.
- FALL PREVENTION
Visiting Angels will work with you to develop a fall-prevention plan for your loved one to reduce the risk of future accidents. Caregivers will assess internal fall risks, such as poor eyesight, medications, nutrition, muscle weakness, and history of falls as well as external hazards, such as clutter, poor lighting, and other threats around the home.
- PALLIATIVE CARE
Visiting Angels’ certified palliative program takes a holistic approach to non-medical in-home senior care. This comprehensive method focuses on your senior’s mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being if they are living with any chronic condition.
- PERSONAL CARE
Personal care services are ideal for someone with limited mobility, a physical disability, or a chronic health condition. Personal care includes companionship but also assists with daily living activities — such as dressing, grooming, and bathing — and other in-home duties.
- READY, SET, GO HOME TRANSITIONAL CARE
Transitioning home after a stay at the hospital can be difficult for your older adult and can put them at significant risk of medical complications that could lead to hospital readmissions — especially during the first few weeks after discharge. “Ready, Set, Go Home” is a transitional care program designed to provide non-medical support that reduces these risks and makes coming home easier on you, your loved one, and your family.
- RESPITE CARE
Respite care is a helpful resource when you need a break or a helping hand with your primary caregiving responsibilities. While respite care does not replace family care, it is used as a supplement to ensure your loved one gets the devotion and support they need. Respite care is available for as little as a few hours—or a day or two—to fit your schedule.
- SOCIAL CARE
Visiting Angels monitors and teaches seniors how to use popular digital technologies such as Facebook, texting, video calls, and more to communicate with family and friends. The Social Care program can help your loved one learn new digital skills to enhance their communication abilities while boosting feelings of accomplishment and preserving their independence.
As needs and requests change, you will have peace of mind knowing your senior has a professional and dedicated team committed to helping them stay in the familiar surroundings of home.
