Visiting Angels of Westerville Helps Seniors Manage Chronic Illnesses with In-Home Senior Care Services

Our senior care services help older adults in Westerville, Columbus, Gahanna, Worthington and surrounding areas in Ohio manage chronic illnesses and increase the number of “good days” they have

If your elderly loved one is living with a chronic illness, it’s important to find the care they need to help them manage their symptoms and live a good quality of life. Assisted living facilities may provide the support your loved one needs to live with a chronic condition, but if your loved one values their independence and wishes to remain in their own home, this may not be the best option.

In-home care has become the preferred option for seniors over time. However, it can be difficult to find an agency in Delaware and Franklin Counties who have the experience needed to provide care for seniors with chronic conditions.

At Visiting Angels of Westerville, our caregivers can work with your loved one to provide the one-on-one support they need right in their own home. With personalized senior care services, flexible scheduling and experienced caregivers, we can increase the amount of “good days” your loved one has and help them live out their golden years at home.

What are Chronic Illnesses?

Chronic illnesses require medical attention for at least a year or more. Common chronic conditions among seniors are arthritis, asthma, respiratory illnesses, diabetes, heart disease, various types of cancer and osteoporosis.

Seniors living with chronic illnesses need more than standard in-home care as these conditions can often impact their ability to complete daily tasks. Fortunately, our senior care services can be personalized based on your loved one’s needs so they’ll always have someone to help them with tasks and make sure they’re doing well.
