Visiting Angels Tacoma: What is Home Care?

Home care from Visiting Angels® Tacoma WA is a helpful resource for local families who have an elderly or disabled loved one who requires assistance at home. When seniors have a desire to age in place, but struggle to maintain their independence due to the effects of aging or physical limitations, our care provides the support they need. Our agency provides essential personal aid with the activities of daily living to make aging in place possible.

Visiting Angels Tacoma provides home care in the form of personal care for people with limited mobility, transitional care after a hospital stay, elderly companion care to help seniors avoid isolation, end of life care, social care to help seniors stay connected, and specialized Alzheimer's and dementia care for those with memory related illness. Our essential personal services are flexible and can address these specific areas of care, as well as a combination of different types of senior care.
