Home Care in Palmer MAVisiting Angels of Southbridge offers a better choice for seniors than moving into an assisted living facility. Our network includes hundreds of Visiting Angels agencies across the country, each independently owned and operated by someone with deep roots in their local community.
Our personalized approach to home care begins with a free, comprehensive in-home assessment of your loved one’s needs. During this time, we will meet with your loved one and your family and answer all of the questions you have. We will then develop a home care plan that will help your loved one continue to live safely in their Palmer home.
We have designed our home care services to be flexible so they can be adapted as necessary to meet the needs of your loved one and your family. For some of the specific age-related challenges of daily living, our personal care services can include a variety of activities, such as help with toileting, bathing and dressing, shopping and meal preparation, laundry and light housekeeping, transportation and errands, medication reminders, companionship, and more.
If you or your family have been shouldering the load as family caregivers, our respite care services can help you avoid burnout and give you a chance to take a much-needed break. As with all of our in-home care, our services are flexible and can be customized as needed.
Visiting Angels of Southbridge has assembled a team of loving home care providers who have a passion for caring for our clients. Give Visiting Angels a call today and let us show you a better option, one that allows your loved one to “age in place” in the comfort of their Palmer home.
