What to Expect From Visiting Angels' In Home Care in Springfield, Nixa, Ozark, Republic, and Nearby Cities

While every senior is different, most have one thing in common: they want to remain at home as long as they possibly can. In home care in Springfield, Nixa, Ozark, Republic, and the surrounding area is designed to prevent or delay moving to an assisted living center or nursing home, by providing companionship and help with activities of daily living. As baby boomers retire by the thousands each day, the demand for home care will increase. 
 
According to a recent survey, over 90% of seniors want to stay at home for as long as they can. Home is where a person is most comfortable, and if a person moves into a nursing home or assisted living facility, they will likely give up some of that comfort. Another study showed that those who received home care services had 25% fewer doctor visits than those who did not receive in home care. Visiting Angels of Springfield's team of respite workers, companion caregivers, and home aides work together with clients' healthcare providers to offer comprehensive care.
