Visiting Angels South Elgin: What is Home Care?

As seniors age, they often begin to require assistance at home. From help with daily tasks to meaningful companionship, many seniors can benefit from home care through Visiting Angels® South Elgin IL. Our agency also assists disabled adults, and those with limited mobility, who may have a hard time remaining independent without help. Our care provides the non-medical assistance seniors and the disabled need in order to age in place.

Home care from Visiting Angels South Elgin looks different to different people. For some, it provides a much-needed respite for family caregivers. For others, our care brings peace of mind to families who have a loved one with Alzheimer's or dementia. When seniors are recovering from an impatient hospital stay, our services help them avoid repeat hospital visits. And when families are navigating the end of life process, our care provides compassionate support. We are honored to be a trusted source of assistance for families in a variety of circumstances.
