At Visiting Angels® Oklahoma City, our home care services are available for families in Oklahoma City, Yukon, Reno, and the surrounding communities who could benefit from professional assistance with their caregiving tasks. Our compassionate care providers understand how stressful caring for a loved one can be.

Bringing in outside support doesn’t mean that you’re giving up on your loved one. Instead, it helps you ensure that they receive the high-quality care that they deserve.

Assisting Family Caregivers in Oklahoma City

Many family caregivers begin their journey thinking that they can, and should, be the sole caregiver for their loved one. After all, as the person closest to your loved one, you may think that only you can offer the personalized care that they need and prefer. However, it can be detrimental to your relationship and your well-being to take on more than you can handle in a caregiving situation.

Caregiver burnout has multiple symptoms, including mental and emotional exhaustion, social isolation, anxiety, and depression. Don’t let your role as caregiver take a toll on your well-being or your ability to maintain a positive relationship with your loved one. Instead, bring in a professional home care services provider from Visiting Angels Oklahoma City to share the burden of caregiving and ensure you receive the respite that you need to be the best caregiver possible.

At Visiting Angels Oklahoma City, our home care services offer flexible support that ensures you have assistance when you require it while also allowing you to continue doing the caregiving tasks that you enjoy. For example, our compassionate care providers can step in for a few hours a week to chat with your loved one, support them with personal care routines, or take care of basic homemaking activities. Or, you can have a professional caregiver assist you on a daily basis with the act of providing care.
