You likely haven't thought of your parents as people who may need help, since they've always been the ones to provide help to you. Yet, as people age, they can start to need a little bit more care around the home. Whether it's because of a health issue or they just cannot do everything they could before, it might be surprising that they need the extra assistance. Now, they might need you as much as you've needed them.

When you first realize your loved one needs extra homecare in Springfield Missouri, you might have a lot of different concerns. How do you find the right caregiver? What can the caregiver do to help? Many people in this position are overwhelmed with the thought of finding the best in-home care for their loved one. Visiting Angels understands this and is ready to help you.

How We Can Help Provide the Needed Care

Aging in place means seniors can continue to live in their own home for as long as possible without having to move into an assisted living facility. Most seniors prefer this because they don't want to leave the home they've lived in for many years. The in-home care from Visiting Angels makes this possible by providing caregivers to assist with daily tasks your loved one may need help with. They provide the one-on-one support that's needed for a senior to be able to comfortably live at home.

At Visiting Angels, our compassionate caregivers provide assistance with the activities of daily living that make aging in place possible. You can create a care plan that is based on your loved one's specific needs. The caregiver will visit at the times you schedule to ensure they're available when needed and can perform many different tasks to help your loved one. As their needs change, we can adjust the schedule and the care provided to continue to meet their needs.
