How At-Home Health Care Can Help Seniors in Silver Spring, MD and Surrounding Areas Manage Chronic Illnesses at Home

Our at-home health care services help seniors in Silver Spring, Bethesda, Rockville, Chevy Chase and surrounding communities in MD keep chronic conditions under control

When a senior loved one is diagnosed with a chronic illness, family members may find it hard to continue caring for them at home. However, despite developing a chronic condition, most seniors still wish to remain at home as they age, so relocating your parent or relative to a nearby nursing home may not be the right option for them or their well-being.

At Visiting Angels Silver Spring, our at-home health care services can help seniors keep their chronic conditions under control, maintain both their independence and routine, and lead active, quality lives in spite of their diagnosis.

What Are Chronic Conditions?

By definition, chronic conditions are conditions that require the attention of medical professionals for more than a year. Due to how long they can last, chronic illnesses can take a drastic toll on a person’s quality of life and make everyday activities and tasks extremely difficult to perform.

Common chronic conditions among the senior population include arthritis, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, osteoporosis and others. As these conditions are serious, they require specialized care at home. In other words, managing age-related chronic illnesses may not be possible with standard in home care.
