Description

Home Care Services

Home care services make aging in place possible for millions of seniors every year. Instead of moving to an assisted living facility or a nursing home, seniors can continue living where they feel

happiest and most comfortable — their home.

No one understands the importance of senior home care like we do at Visiting Angels®. As one of the country’s most trusted home care brands in the country, we make aging in place possible for

seniors across the U.S. Our care services make daily living safer and more enjoyable for our clients, allowing them to spend their golden years in the comfort of home.

Our home care services offer valuable support to families. Visiting Angels makes it easier to care for aging loved ones, helping families to spend more quality time together. At the same time, we

provide much-needed respite for family caregivers, reducing their risk of caregiver burnout.

The Right Type of Home Care Service

Choosing the right type of home care service will ensure your loved one’s comfort and improve their quality of life. But if you’re unfamiliar with the different types of home care, deciding between them

can be confusing.

The good news? Selecting the right service is simpler than you might expect.

Companion Care

For most seniors, companion care provides the support they need for a wide range of basic caregiving tasks, including light housekeeping, help with errands, and meal preparation. This makes it

a perfect choice for anyone who needs assistance to live at home safely, but who doesn’t require advanced assistance.

Personal Care

If your loved one has advanced care needs, then personal care could be the right choice. Personal care includes basic caregiving duties of companion care, but it also helps with tasks such as

grooming, dressing, bathing, and mobility. Personal care can also provide essential care to individuals with chronic conditions, such as diabetes, COPD, or Parkinson’s.

Respite Care

Are you the primary caregiver for an aging or disabled family member? If so, respite care could be the best option. Respite care helps family caregivers pursue other activities, attend urgent

obligations, and spend more time with family. Most importantly, it gives them time they can devote to self-care, reducing the risk of caregiver burnout.

Specialized Home Care

Seniors with specific health conditions or care needs may require specialized care. At Visiting Angels, we offer specialized home care services through our Life Care Navigation program. If your

loved one has a range of distinct care needs, we can combine these with our traditional home care services when we develop your loved one’s care plan.

Specialized types of care offered by Visiting Angels include Alzheimer’s care, dementia care, and hospital-to-home transitional care.

Home Care Services with Visiting Angels

At Visiting Angels, our goal is simple. We want to make aging in place as comfortable and enjoyable as possible for seniors. At the same time, we want to make home care services as easy and

stress-free as possible for families.

Our approach to home care starts with a custom care plan for every client. Your local Visiting Angels home care agency will tailor this care plan to your loved one’s unique needs and living

conditions. This way, we provide support exactly where it’s needed.

When coordinating care, we work closely with families each step of the way. Once care starts, we remain in close contact with family members to keep them up to date. As your loved one’s needs

evolve, we’ll work with you to make sure they continue receiving the care they need.
Getting Started with Home Care Services

With Visiting Angels, it’s easy to get started with home care services.

Your local Visiting Angels agency will schedule a free consultation to begin the process. We’ll learn about your loved one’s needs, living conditions, and personal preferences. We’ll use this

information to build a framework for your loved one’s care plan.

As we develop your loved one’s care plan, we consider a wide range of factors. We’ll consider your loved one’s personal routine, while also developing a schedule that fits comfortably within your

budget. Our agencies also work with doctors, nurses, and other health care providers to ensure our care plans align with medical directives.

The final step is to match your loved one with a caregiver (or caregivers). At Visiting Angels, we pride ourselves on the compassion, dedication, and experience of our home care providers. We

know how crucial the relationship between caregivers and seniors can be. Because of this, we strive to find the perfect fit for every client.

Companion Care

Companion care gives seniors the assistance they need to live safely and comfortably at home. This type of home care covers a range of basic tasks and activities that many seniors find difficult to

perform on their own. In other situations, these obstacles can put seniors at risk of losing their independence. But with companion care, seniors can maintain their routines and continue to age in

place.

At Visiting Angels®, companion caregiving is one of our most popular services, covering a broad range of caregiving duties. This makes it a great choice for seniors who need a bit of help to

remain at home, but who don’t require advanced caregiving.

What Is Companion Care?

Companion care is a type of in-home care service that provides non-medical assistance to elderly and disabled adults.

Care will typically include a number of ways to make daily living easier and safer for the care recipient. For example, a caregiver might perform errands on behalf of a client, such as shopping for

groceries or picking up medications. At other times, caregivers will plan and prepare regular meals, perform light housekeeping duties, and offer medication reminders.

This type of care is also designed to improve quality of life in other ways. Caregivers act as partners for favorite hobbies and activities, accompany clients to appointments and social outings, and

engage in friendly conversation with clients.

These activities can be a lifeline for socially isolated seniors. Social isolation has shown to dramatically increase the risk of health complications and mortality in seniors. Companion caregiving

provides isolated seniors with social interaction and regular companionship, ending the cycle of senior isolation.

Companion Caregiving vs. Personal Caregiving

When choosing care services for your loved one, you may need to choose between companion care and personal care. Because of this, it’s helpful to know the difference between the two

services.

With companion caregiving, duties typically include activities such as doing laundry, making meals, and assisting with errands. However, this type of care does not include physical assistance with

activities like dressing, bathing, or toileting.

Personal care covers the basic care duties of companion caregiving, while also providing physical assistance to clients. Personal care services can also include non-medical assistance for chronic

health conditions, like diabetes or Parkinson’s.

Most seniors who receive home care can age in place comfortably with companion caregiving. However, seniors who require advanced care or physical assistance may need personal care to live

at home safely.

Getting Started with Companion Care

Your local Visiting Angels office makes it easy to get started with home care.

When you contact your local office, we will schedule a free consultation with you and your loved one. Based on this consultation, we will develop a custom care plan and care schedule. This care

plan will be tailored according to your loved one’s unique care needs and preferences.

Once we’ve developed your loved one’s care plan, we will match them with a companion caregiver. Our Select Your Caregiver® program ensures the right match for every client, allowing you to find

the perfect caregiver for your loved one.

In Home Alzheimer’s Care Services

Alzheimer’s home care services allow your loved one to maintain the independence of their daily routines and the comfort of familiar surroundings. Care is made available in your loved one’s home,

with services provided by qualified, knowledgeable, and compassionate Alzheimer’s caregivers. Visiting Angels® aims to improve the quality of life for those living with Alzheimer’s and their families.

We can help your loved one avoid the emotional trauma of leaving their cherished home, assist them in coping with the dementia illness, and provide the respite care that is often so important to

family caregivers.

What are Your Alzheimer’s Care Options?

Individuals living with Alzheimer’s disease need high-level care to maintain and preserve their well-being and safety. Family members typically care for loved ones with early-stage and mid-stage

Alzheimer’s, but the effects of the disease can overwhelm them when it reaches the later stages. This is the time when professional Alzheimer’s care is often required.

A nursing home is an option for professional care, but transitioning a loved one to another dwelling can be traumatic, and it is usually the last route.

Another care option for Alzheimer’s patients is to hire a home care service designed to help them remain at home in a more familiar dwelling.

What is Alzheimer’s Home Care?

Alzheimer’s home care is a specialized service different from traditional home care, because individuals with Alzheimer’s have distinct care needs from other seniors. In Alzheimer’s care, the care

plan is designed around the unique challenges of Alzheimer’s disease, as well as the recipient’s individual care needs. Care is provided in the comfort of the senior’s home, and services are

performed by caregivers who are uniquely qualified to care for individuals living with Alzheimer’s. For more information, visit our Alzheimer’s FAQ page.

About Our Alzheimer’s Care Services

After an initial diagnosis of Alzheimer’s, family members are most often faced with difficult decisions about providing care for their loved one. Working parents with children are faced with new

stresses to balance work and family. Family members who are separated by great distances must make hard choices about how to provide Alzheimer’s care services. You have choices, and we

can help.

Visiting Angels makes it possible for those coping with Alzheimer’s to age in place. Research has shown that familiar surroundings play an important role in the well-being of those with early stages

of Alzheimer’s. A move to a nursing facility can trigger confusion, anxiety, stress, and agitation. Our Alzheimer’s care services ensure those with Alzheimer’s are able to remain at home where they

are happiest and most comfortable.

Our Alzheimer’s caregivers can also relieve the burdens faced by family caregivers, who may find themselves overwhelmed by the responsibilities that come with Alzheimer’s care. We provide

regular monitoring, routine check-ins, and an after-hours line so that you and your family have the peace of mind you need.

Alzheimer’s home care services can be tailored based on the symptoms of Alzheimer’s your loved one is experiencing and the disease progress. Alzheimer’s services and various levels of care

may include:

Household chores
Bathing or showering
Meal preparation and eating supervision
Grooming and dressing assistance
Incontinence care
Elderly companionship
Palliative care
Respite care for family caregivers

Alzheimer’s services are part of a comprehensive Visiting Angels service program called Life Care Navigation™. In addition to Alzheimer’s care, this program includes specialized dementia care

services for individuals with other types of memory disorders.
Getting Started with Alzheimer’s Care

We offer free in-person meetings and assessments to help you find out if Alzheimer’s home care is right for your loved one. A Visiting Angels care director will meet with you and your loved one in

the comfort of your loved one’s home to answer any questions, evaluate care requirements, and outline care options.

Home care is personalized around each client’s needs, with services customized according to your loved one’s symptoms, personality, and routine. You will be able to Select Your Caregiver® to

ensure your loved one is matched with the right care provider. Our caregivers approach their work with kindness, patience, and above-and-beyond dedication to the seniors in their care.

Dementia Care

Dementia Care services offer specialized in-home support to those with early-stage, mid-stage, or late-stage dementia. Our caregivers help our clients maintain quality of life so that aging in place

remains possible. We also provide family caregivers with much-needed respite.

When a loved one is diagnosed with dementia, their well-being will depend on family, friends, and familiar surroundings. Over time, your loved one will likely rely on family caregivers and the comfort

of their home more and more. You may find yourself overwhelmed trying to care for your loved one. Eventually, you may start to worry that you will need to move your loved one into a nursing facility.

Dementia care services from Visiting Angels® can provide you and your loved one with the support you need. Our caregivers offer compassionate, specialized assistance designed specifically for

those who are coping with dementia. This way, your loved one can continue to live at home, receiving care designed to maximize quality of life. At the same time, you will get the respite you need to

maintain your own well-being and find time for other important responsibilities.

Dementia Care Services

At Visiting Angels, we understand the challenges of caring for those with dementia. Unlike other types of senior care, dementia care services must be tailored to the specific symptoms, risks, and

challenges related to the different types of dementia.

Visiting Angels has partnered with leading dementia specialists to develop a series of dementia care certification programs. Basic dementia care training is available to all Visiting Angels caregivers,

and many caregivers are certified in advanced dementia care protocols.

Our dementia care services are offered through Life Care Navigation™, a collection of specialized senior care services, each of which focuses on a different aspect of elderly living. These services

include a dedicated Alzheimer’s care program for those with Alzheimer’s disease, which accounts for 60% to 80% of all cases of dementia.

Through our dementia care program, we provide assistance with a wide variety of needs. We assist our clients with personal tasks, provide comforting companionship, and offer helpful reminders

when needed. Our dementia care services can include help with activities that include:

Wandering prevention
Walking assistance
Transferring assistance
Dignified bathing, dressing and grooming care
Medication reminders and monitoring
Preparation of healthy meals
Light housekeeping chores
Transportation to appointments and therapies

Getting Started with Dementia Care

Visiting Angels offers free care assessments to help you determine if dementia care services are right for your loved one. Your loved one’s care assessment will be performed in the comfort of his or

her home. During this assessment, we will outline the foundation for your loved one’s dementia care services.

First, we will customize a care plan around your loved one’s lifestyle, preferences, and symptoms. If you decided to proceed with care, we will then match your loved one with a caregiver whose

skills and strengths are particularly suited to your loved one’s care needs. You will have the opportunity to Select Your Caregiver® to ensure your full peace of mind.

Respite Care for Seniors and Family Caregivers

Caring for a loved one is one of the most generous and caring things you can do. Whether you’re caring for a parent with Alzheimer’s or a disabled sibling, you’re providing the assistance they

need to continue living safely at home. But what do you do when you need a break? The in-home respite care program from Visiting Angels® is an option.

What is Respite Care?

Respite care services provide short-term relief for primary caregivers. Many family member caregivers experience stress and emotional exhaustion trying to juggle their needs with the

responsibilities of caring for an elderly loved one. Respite care for the elderly enables family caregivers to take much-needed breaks and focus on their personal lives while ensuring their senior

loved ones continue to receive compassionate and friendly personal care.

A respite caregiver from Visiting Angels can help seniors with tasks inside the home, including preparing meals, folding clothes or simply providing companionship. Respite services can take place

in a hospice or medical facility, a senior day care center or in the comfort of the senior’s own home.

The in-home respite care program at Visiting Angels is designed to fit you and your senior loved one’s schedules and needs. Professional caregivers can visit as frequently as you desire on a

temporary or long-term basis. Respite care is available weekdays, weekends and holidays. A Visiting Angels home care agency near you will work with you to create a care plan tailored and

personalized for you and your loved one. The goal is to allow you to disengage from your caregiving duties and let a professional handle the caregiving tasks for as long as you need.

How Respite Care Helps

At Visiting Angels, our in-home care program matches your loved one with one of our friendly and compassionate caregivers. Caregivers can visit for a few hours a day or several times a week to

provide family caregivers with the opportunity to run errands, go to work, take a vacation, or simply rest and recharge.

When our caregivers visit, they will quickly put your loved one at ease. While engaging in friendly conversation, caregivers can also provide assistance with a wide variety of home care needs. Our

caregivers can help your loved one with dressing and bathing, transferring assistance, and other personal care needs. They can also help around the house performing simple chores and

preparing healthy meals. The engaged care we provide makes it easy for your loved one to look forward to these visits and can help relieve the anxiety or guilt you may feel by stepping away for a

few hours.

How to Get Started with In-Home Care

If you’ve been feeling burnt out or frustrated with your caregiver role, now is a good time to find respite care. Taking care of yourself is vitally important. Respite care provides the break you need to

rest and regroup.

Getting started is easy. Simply get in touch with one of our local home care offices. We can match your loved one with a caregiver who can provide the assistance they need. Respite care is offered

on an hourly basis so you can establish the frequency and scope of care that best meets your needs. Because our home care services are flexible, should your loved one require more engaged

care in the future, we can expand our role to include companion care, personal care, or even care for Alzheimer’s or dementia.

Personal Care | Private Duty Home Care

Personal care — or private care — is a specialized service that provides essential home care assistance to seniors and disabled individuals. Private duty caregivers assist with homemaking and

personal activities, allowing seniors to remain at home living comfortably in a familiar place.

A private in-home caregiver can provide companionship for seniors as well as offer respite care for family members who care for their loved ones on a regular basis.

Private Home Care from Visiting Angels®

We make aging in place possible for seniors who wish to remain at home rather than a nursing home. Our private care providers assist older adults with daily living tasks they may find difficult or

dangerous to perform on their own. Personal and homemaking activities may include:

Dressing
Grooming
Hygiene
Bathing
Toileting
Mobility
Transference
Medication reminders
Meal planning
Meal preparation
Light housekeeping
Shopping
Errands
Monitoring
Elderly Companionship

With Visiting Angels, you will be comfortable and relieved that your loved one is receiving the care they need. We provide a custom care plan for every client, and we will carefully match your loved

one with a uniquely qualified caregiver. That way, your loved one gets the care they deserve, and you can rest easy that they’re content, safe, and secure.

About Our Personal Care Services

Roughly 9 in 10 seniors want to age in place for as long as they possibly can. Unfortunately, physical difficulties and disabilities make this difficult for many elderly adults. But with personal care

services from Visiting Angels, seniors can enjoy the comfort, familiarity, and independence of home for years to come.

To ensure your loved one receives the private care services he or she needs, Visiting Angels offers a collection of senior care programs that we call Life Care Navigation™. This allows us to tailor

our services to each person’s unique needs, with a custom care plan for every client.

Our personal care services are provided to seniors who require assistance with activities of daily living. In addition to caring for elderly adults, our personal care providers also work with disabled

individuals and those recovering from illness, injury, or a hospital stay. Through personal care, day-to-day life can be made safer, more comfortable, and more livable for these individuals.

In addition to caring for elderly adults, our personal care providers also work with disabled individuals and those recovering from illness, injury, or a hospital stay. Through personal care, day-to-day

life can be made safer, more comfortable, and more livable for these individuals.

Getting Started with Private Home Care

To help you get started with personal home care services, your local Visiting Angels will provide a free care assessment in the comfort of your loved one’s home. We’ll answer any questions you

have about personal care, and we’ll create a blueprint for your loved one’s services. This blueprint will be based on an evaluation of your loved one’s difficulties, preferences, and routines.

Should you decide to proceed with private home care, we will carefully match your loved one with a caregiver whose skills, qualifications, and approach to caregiving align with your loved one’s

needs. You will be able to Select Your Caregiver® to give you and your loved one full peace of mind.
