Getting Started with Home Health Care Services from Visiting Angels Silver Spring
Visiting Angels makes it easy and stress-free to arrange home health care services for families in Silver Spring, Bethesda, Rockville, Chevy Chase, Olney and surrounding areas in Maryland
Providing in-home care for a senior loved one is a great way to show that you love them and help them live out their golden years in their cherished home. However, your loved one's needs may increase over time and you may not always have the time or resources needed to provide the support they deserve. This is the reason why hiring professional caregivers is a great way to provide the highest quality care that your loved ones deserve.
But looking into local home care agencies in the Silver Spring area for your loved one can be stressful. Not only is it time-consuming to research the best agency and what each provider offers to seniors, but you and your loved one also have to be comfortable with inviting a stranger into their home.
At Visiting Angels Silver Spring, we help make the process of arranging home health care services for seniors and families in Silver Spring, Bethesda, Rockville, Chevy Chase, Olney and throughout Montgomery County as stress-free as possible. Our care coordinator team is always here to answer any questions you have about our services and address your concerns about our caregivers. We want to make sure you can count on our team to provide dependable, one-on-one care that can help your loved one remain safe and comfortable in their own home.
How We Help Families Get Started
If you'd like to learn about what Visiting Angels has to offer, you can always set up a free in-home consultation with our care coordinators. This meeting will help us set up a care assessment so we can better understand what your loved one needs and create a customized plan of care. This is also the best time to ask us about our home care services, scheduling, caregivers, costs of care and other topics.
But aside from getting information, it is also a great opportunity for us to get to know potential clients so that we can provide recommendations on what works for your situation. That way, we can ensure your loved one gets the assistance and support they truly need.
What We Discuss During Consultations
When you contact our Silver Spring, MD office to arrange a free in-home consultation with our care team, it is important to ask us any questions you may have so you can be sure that Visiting Angels is the right choice for your loved one. Be sure to ask the right questions to gauge if we have the home health care services and experience your loved one needs to safely and comfortably age in place.
Below are some of the topics that we typically discuss with families during the initial meeting:
- Specific physical care needs such as hygiene assistance, feeding, meal preparation and incontinence.
- Adherence to schedules such as sleeping, eating and when they take their medicine.
- Emotional care needs, including companionship and socialization.
- Light housekeeping assistance such as laundry, dishes and sweeping.
- Logistics in case the client needs to go to the doctor or physical therapist.
- What to do when your loved one's needs change or they need more long-term care.
- How we can help you find the perfect caregiver.
After the initial assessment, if you decide that Visiting Angels Silver Spring is the best option for your loved one, we will discuss a personalized care plan and help your loved one select the caregiver they wish to work with. We can usually begin providing in-home care within 48 hours after the consultation, but we can also provide same-day care in urgent situations.
What if I Live Outside the Silver Spring Area?
At Visiting Angels, we understand it's not always easy to live far away from an elderly loved one while making sure they're receiving the home health care services they need. If you're unable to physically attend the initial consultation, we can make sure you're involved via phone call or FaceTime. In addition, our care team will always keep you up-to-date on your loved one's well-being as we provide care so you can always be informed.
