Getting Started with Home Health Care Services from Visiting Angels Silver Spring

Visiting Angels helps families in Silver Spring, Bethesda, Rockville and Chevy Chase, MD arrange home health care services for their elderly loved ones

Taking care of your elderly loved one at home is a great way to show that you love them. However, care for a sick loved one can be very challenging as it demands time and commitment from you – the primary caregiver. This is the reason why hiring caregivers to care for your loved one is a great way to provide the highest quality care that your loved ones deserve.

But hiring a professional to provide home health care for a loved one can be stressful. Not only is it time-consuming to research the best agency and what each provider offers to seniors in the Silver Spring area, 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 in-home care services for seniors as stress-free as possible. Our care coordinators are always here to answer any questions you have about our services and address your concerns about our caregivers. We want to make sure you and your loved one can trust us to give them the care they need in the comfort of their own home in Silver Spring, MD.

How We Assist Families in Silver Spring and Surrounding Areas

We will first set up an initial meeting so that you will be briefed on the home health care services that we provide. We can also outline the specific care needed by your loved ones. This is also the best time to raise concerns if your loved ones have special needs. But aside from getting information, it is also a great opportunity for us to get to know you and our client so that we can provide recommendations on what works for your situation. Through our years of experience, we will be able to carefully make a plan for what your loved ones need.

What We Discuss During Consultations

When you call our Silver Spring, MD office to arrange a free in-home consultation with one of our care coordinators, it is also important that you do due diligence to determine if you have found the right in-home care provider.

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 you can raise 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 intake of medicine.
  • Emotional care and social interaction programs to patients who are at risk of depression, anxiety and loneliness.
  • Homemaking assistance such as light housekeeping, laundry, groceries and preparation of meals.
  • Logistics in case the client needs to go to the doctor or physical therapist.
  • A customized care plan that is specific to meeting the needs of your elderly loved ones.
