Home Care Services
Home care makes aging in place possible for millions of seniors every year. Instead of moving to an assisted living facility or a nursing home, seniors can continue living where they feel happiest and most comfortable — their home.
No one understands the importance of senior care like we do at Visiting Angels®. As one of the country's most trusted home care agencies in the country, we make senior care possible for older adults across the U.S. Our in-home care services for the elderly make daily living safer and more enjoyable, allowing seniors to spend their golden years in the comfort of home.
Our elder care offers valuable support to families. Visiting Angels makes it easier to care for aging loved ones, helping families to spend more quality time together. At the same time, we provide much-needed respite for family caregivers, reducing their risk of caregiver burnout.

Home Care for Seniors
Choosing the right type of home care will ensure your loved one's comfort and improve their quality of life. But if you're unfamiliar with the different types of home care, deciding between them can be confusing.
The good news? Selecting the right home care service is simpler than you might expect. Here are some options offered:
- Companion Care
- Personal Care
- Respite Care
- Specialized Home Care
For most seniors, companion care provides the support they need for a wide range of basic caregiving tasks, including light housekeeping, help with errands, and meal preparation. This makes it a perfect choice for anyone who needs assistance to live at home safely, but who doesn't require advanced assistance.
If your loved one has advanced care needs, then personal care could be the right choice. Personal care includes basic caregiving duties of companion care, but it also helps with tasks such as grooming, dressing, bathing, and mobility. Personal care can also provide essential care to individuals with chronic conditions, such as diabetes, COPD, or Parkinson's.
Are you the primary caregiver for an aging or disabled family member? If so, respite care could be the best option. Respite care helps family caregivers pursue other activities, attend urgent obligations, and spend more time with family. Most importantly, it gives them time they can devote to self-care, reducing the risk of caregiver burnout.
Seniors with specific health conditions or care needs may require specialized care. At Visiting Angels, we offer specialized home care services through our Life Care Navigation program. If your loved one has a range of distinct care needs, we can combine these with our traditional home care services when we develop your loved one's care plan.
Senior Care That Is Personalized
At Visiting Angels, our goal is simple. We want to make senior care as comfortable and enjoyable for loved ones who want to age in place. At the same time, we want to make home care services for the elderly as easy and stress-free as possible for families.
Our approach to senior care starts with a custom care plan for every client. Your local Visiting Angels home care agency will personalize a comprehensive care plan to your loved one's unique needs and living conditions. This way, we provide support exactly where it's needed.
When coordinating care, we work closely with families each step of the way. Once care starts, we remain in close contact with family members to keep them up to date. As your loved one's needs evolve, we'll work with you to make sure they continue receiving the care they need.
Home Care Assistance
With Visiting Angels, it's easy to get started with senior care services.
Your local Visiting Angels agency will schedule a free consultation to begin the process. We'll learn about your loved one's needs, living conditions, and personal preferences. We'll use this information to build a framework for your loved one's care plan.
As we develop your loved one's plan, we consider a wide range of factors. Our home care assistance recommendations include your loved one's personal routine, while also developing a schedule that fits comfortably within your budget. Our home care agencies also work with doctors, nurses, and other health care providers to ensure our care plans align with medical directives.
The final step is to match your loved one with a caregiver (or caregivers). At Visiting Angels, we pride ourselves on the compassion, dedication, and experience of our home care providers. We know how crucial the relationship between caregivers and seniors can be. Because of this, we strive to find the perfect fit for every client.
