Retirement should be a happy and stress-free time for seniors. Retirees should enjoy each day pursuing hobbies, spending time with loved ones, and soaking up a relaxing pace of life.
However, as seniors age, the responsibilities of self-care and homeownership can become more difficult. Senior home care in Gig Harbor, WA, with Visiting Angels can fill the gap and keep seniors at home where they are comfortable.
Visiting Angels Senior Home Care Services
Visiting Angels provides compassionate and highly skilled senior home care in Gig Harbor, WA. We take great pride in finding and developing professional caregivers who are expertly trained to provide the services that seniors may need to stay independent and comfortable in their own homes.
We offer services 24-7, 365 days a year, so we are always here when we are needed.
Aside from our excellent services, we strive to build trusting relationships that withstand the test of time. Our goal isn’t just to make sure basic needs are met but to improve the overall well-being of seniors so they can enjoy their retirement to the fullest.
Two of our primary areas of senior care services are home care support and personal care support.
Home Care Support
Managing everyday tasks when living at home can become overwhelming for seniors, especially those who experience health and/or mobility issues. Visiting Angels provides senior home care services to help ease their burden. We help with tasks including:
- Medication reminders
- Meal planning
- Meal preparation
- Running errands
- Providing transportation
Our staff understands how overwhelming completing these daily chores can be. An in-home care professional can take a lot off of a senior’s plate, enabling them to spend time doing the things they enjoy.
Personal Care Support
In addition to home care support, Visiting Angels also offers personal care support to help seniors with everyday personal tasks. These include:
- Personal hygiene
Our staff is expertly trained in providing personal care support in the most compassionate way possible. We are flexible and know how to work with seniors experiencing a variety of mobility issues and health ailments. We always provide our personal care services with the utmost discretion and professionalism.
Advantages of In-Home Caregiving
It is natural to explore a variety of options when a senior needs help with everyday tasks. Options for senior care can include moving in with a family member or transitioning to an assisted living community. While these solutions work for some families, they can require significant lifestyle changes.
For many seniors and their families, home care in Gig Harbor, WA, is an ideal option because it allows seniors to continue their retirement comfortably in their own homes. Other advantages of choosing in-home caregiving include independence, personalized care, and flexibility.
It is important that seniors maintain their independence through retirement, even if they need a little support with everyday activities. In-home care allows them to retain as much independence as they want while also easing the burden of completing tasks that have become difficult.
One of the major advantages of in-home care is that every senior gets dedicated, one-on-one attention. This type of personalized service simply isn’t possible in senior living communities. Visiting Angels provides thorough personalized home care plans for every client, ensuring that all needs are met in a way that is comfortable for the long term.
Choosing a care option like moving in with a relative or transitioning to an assisted living community does not preserve much flexibility. In-home care allows seniors to have total control over their services, their schedule, and their caregiver.
As the senior’s needs or preferences change, so can their services. Clients of Visiting Angels are not locked into a specific plan — it can be changed at any time.
Even seniors who have planned meticulously for retirement may experience financial stress at one point or another. In-home senior care services are often more affordable than transitioning to a full-time assisted living community.
In addition, the flexible nature of in-home care means that you can adjust services up or down as your financial situation changes.
How Visiting Angels Works
Finding long-term senior care for a loved one can seem like an overwhelming task. At Visiting Angels, we have a process in place that makes finding care simple and stress-free. The first step is an in-home consultation to determine needs and preferences.
During a consultation, a trained staff member will get to know you and become familiar with your daily schedule and where support is needed. They know what questions to ask to accurately assess what level of support is most appropriate. After the consultation, we develop a proposed schedule that fits within your budget.
After a schedule is agreed upon, we will match you with a caregiver who best aligns with your needs as well as with your personality and personal preferences. We aim to find the perfect match so you can form a long-lasting bond and feel totally comfortable with your caregiver.
As you start working with your caregiver, we are always here as a resource. Whether you have questions about your services or you need to change your plan, we are ready to help.
