What Is Home Care?
The question “What is home care?” is one that you’ve probably been asking yourself. At Visiting Angels we’ve been experts in home care for many years and have the experience to help guide you through the home care decision making process.
We understand that it is difficult to allow someone to come into your home or a family member’s home. How do you help someone keep their independence yet care for them in a way that enables them to be safe? How do you care for someone for many hours of the day, yet respecting the fact it is their home? And what about personalities?
These are all questions you and your families may be asking. We have been in thousands of homes and have dealt with many different situations, schedules, personalities and needs. We take the time to answer all of your questions as we understand that this is a new process you will be going through.
Although most home care requests are usually planned, and families need the time to research and evaluate many solutions, Visiting Angels is able to respond quickly to those families and clients that require a faster response in situations as a result of an emergency or a late day discharge from a medical facility such as a hospital or rehabilitation facility. We can respond to requests for in hospital assistance, assisted living facility bedside care or to someone who is being discharged from the hospital or rehabilitation. We are also available to assist with major transitions such as assisted living to a family member’s home, or into a family member’s home as part of a relocation.
We can ease your burden and help you by:
- Consulting with you about scheduling, costs and care.
- Scheduling an in home visit.
- Creating a personalized care plan.
- Coordinating a caregiver meeting.
- Adjusting care plan or routines as needed through monitoring and ongoing, consistent communication.
