Getting Started with At Home Care for Seniors in Stratford, CT

Visiting Angels Stratford can help you arrange care for your senior loved one by listening to your concerns, answering any questions your or your loved one may have, and creating a comprehensive and personalized plan to take care of your loved one’s needs

Whether your senior parent or relative lives alone or they aren’t as healthy and independent as before, they could benefit from at home care for seniors. Having a skilled caregiver by their side whenever they need will certainly make their life easier and safer. It will also give them the chance to focus on things they love.

However, choosing the best at home care for seniors isn’t easy. Apart from having to find a trustworthy company, you also need a personalized care plan for your senior. As a result, there are many things to think about and ask your senior care coordinator.

At Visiting Angels Stratford, we have a plenty of experience in at home care for seniors, offering the top level care to our clients. If you’d like to know how getting started with us looks like, keep on reading.

In order to provide high-quality care, we schedule an initial meeting where the client and their family meet with our care coordinator. This meeting is focused on covering important questions and reviewing the type of care a senior will need. In addition, family members and a care recipient are encouraged to ask anything they want to know or share their doubts with us. We will listen to them patiently and then answer their questions.

The initial meeting is the best way to get to know you and a care recipient, as well as tell you what to expect from our services.

What do we talk about during initial meetings?

Here are the topics that we generally discuss during initial meetings so that we can determine which type of at home care would work best for a care recipient.

  • Discussing certain physical needs of a senior, including personal hygiene tasks, preparing meals, mobility, and incontinence
  • Discussing certain emotional needs such as social interaction, appointments, activities, and companionship
  • Reviewing schedules including sleep patterns, eating and taking medicine
  • Assistance with household chores - shopping, laundry, meal preparation, etc.
  • Logistics of schedule – how to get along with a caregiver, access to home and documentation, how to deal with changes in schedules, etc.

After covering all these points, we would like to hear your opinion. If your answer is positive, we would immediately determine a schedule, care plan a nurse visit and meeting with the caregiver(s).
