You may be in the initial stages of considering senior home care services for your loved one. Visiting Angels will ensure that your loved one maintains their independence in a compassionate environment, right in the comfort of their own home. We can give them the help they need to lead a fulfilling life on their own terms. At the same time, you will get the benefit of peace of mind, knowing your loved one is in safe hands, living their best possible life regardless of circumstances.
It is important to note that quality senior home care services can never really come too early. Once you start noticing that your loved one is having trouble keeping up with the demands of everyday living, you should start the conversation about professional caregiving. Many children of older parents believe this to be too soon, but it, in fact, is not. Having a caregiver around can only help your loved one stay healthier for longer as they will not be stressed out about not being able to continue living in their own home safely.
One of the most important reasons Visiting Angels has changed the lives of so many seniors is because of conversation and companionship services. Your loved one will have a companion in our caregivers, helping them fight off loneliness and depression, both of which plague the senior community.
Once your decision is made, Visiting Angels will come to your loved one's home and carry out an initial visit. We will speak with them about challenges they face and the goals they have for their future. At that time, we will also spend some time with any medical professionals in charge of your loved one's case. This includes doctors, dieticians, and nurses looking after them. We try to get as complete of a picture as possible about your loved one's life right from the start. We include close family members in the conversation as well, because, after all, you may be best able to speak to their wants and needs.
Next, we will match your loved one with a caregiver we believe they would work best with. However, as with anything related to our senior home care services, you have the final say in the selection. We encourage family members to meet with the caregivers we select and decide whether or not they believe they are a good fit.
