How Our In-Home Health Care Providers Assist Seniors in Silver Spring, MD and Surrounding Areas
Learn how in-home health care providers from Visiting Angels help seniors living in Silver Spring, Bethesda, Rockville, Chevy Chase and surrounding areas in Maryland age safely and comfortably in place
Did you know that assisted living facilities aren't the only option for seniors who struggle with living independently? In fact, more and more seniors are gravitating toward in-home care in order to get the support they need in their own beloved home. The term aging in place was created to refer to a senior's ability to continue living their golden years in the home they've known for years.
However, the journey to finding the perfect home care agency for your loved one can be difficult. The idea of inviting a stranger into your home may seem, well, strange. But at Visiting Angels Silver Spring, we will do all that we can to make sure that transitioning to in-home care is a smooth process for you and your loved one.
How Does In-Home Care Help Seniors?
If you've noticed that your loved one has trouble with getting around the house, keeping up with housework or forgetting to take medication, it may be time to consider professional senior care. Although you may have heard others in similar situations choose nursing homes, long-term care facilities and similar senior living communities, hiring an in-home health care provider may be a better option for your loved one.
Home care allows seniors to receive the support they need when they need it most. Unlike seniors who relocate to assisted living facilities, seniors who live at home don't need to follow a preset schedule. For example, if your loved one needs personal care services such as help with bathing or getting dressed, they can have a caregiver who will help them take a bath or get dressed for the day at a time of their choosing. This can help your loved one stick to their everyday routine, which can be especially helpful if your loved one has cognitive issues that can make any disruption to their routine upsetting.
In addition, in-home senior care allows older adults to receive one-on-one support with Activities of Daily Living (ADLs), managing chronic medical conditions and so much more. In a nursing home, your loved one will receive care from whoever is on the clock. But if you choose an in-home health care provider from Visiting Angels Silver Spring, we will introduce you and your loved one to a variety of different caregivers on our team and help you pick the one that will be able to provide the care and support your loved one needs.
