Why Choose Home Care?

For some elderly individuals and their families, the thought of moving into a retirement home is a difficult decision. Caring for the health of elderly family members in their homes, however, is possible with home care from Visiting Angels.

The Dilemma of Aging

Becoming old is difficult for just about everyone. Cleaning the house and cooking meals become exhausting chores, finding company to chat with can be harder, and even moving around becomes less and less enjoyable as time goes on. These restrictions can make you and your family encounter concerns about accidents that could occur, especially if the family lives far away. Some of these dangerous incidents include:

  • Tripping and falling, especially down stairs or over cords
  • Running low on oxygen if they use oxygen as a supplement
  • Running low on medications and being unable to refill the prescriptions by themselves
  • Taking too much or too little of their medications, even if they can refill them on their own
  • Slipping in the bathtub or shower

Maintaining Independence

Despite these dangers, the last thing we want is to see your family suffer due to elderly parents, grandmothers and grandfathers, and grand-uncles and great-aunts who are unable to consider moving away from the life they have built for themselves. Moving from old homes can involve a lot of work and time that the elderly and their families cannot afford to spend. And this doesn’t even mention the pain that comes with uprooting an entire life to live somewhere else.

For some, moving into a retirement home and away from an established home can feel like life has ended before it truly has. With assistance from our caregivers, however, your elderly family members will be able to maintain their independence and age in place inside a familiar environment with nearby friends and family.
