Home Care in Burke: Encouraging Senior Independence

Unfortunately, age can bring various changes, including lessened independence, for your loved one. However, this doesn't mean they have to leave the comfort of their home. At Visiting Angels® Springfield VA, we make aging at home possible. With our home care services in Burke, your loved one can maintain a high level of independence while aging in place.

How Our Home Care in Burke Boosts Independence

One way we help boost our clients' independence is by creating a safe home environment for them. By using proper fall prevention measures, like nightlights and grab bars in bathrooms, your loved one will be safer and at less risk for injury. We also encourage them to remain active and mobile as much as possible, increasing their comfort with certain tasks and moving around.

Another way we can help your loved one enjoy their independence is by being a true companion for them. Seniors who live alone can experience feelings of loneliness or isolation, causing them to lose interest in activities or events they used to like. Our caregivers are a smiling face and a comforting presence for their clients. We also tend to your loved one's mental and emotional health, helping them be more positive.

With Visiting Angels Springfield VA, your loved one will receive respectful and cooperative care. We work alongside our clients, helping them manage daily tasks and responsibilities in a constructive way.
