A complete home care assessment is an essential step when coordinating care for an elderly loved one. At Visiting Angels, our home care assessments
are an essential part of our approach to home care. Before starting care, we meet with every potential client for an in-depth discussion of their care needs. This allows us to carefully tailor our services to each client's specific care concerns and challenges.
But if you're considering home care for an elderly family member, it can be difficult to assess your loved one's care needs on your own. Our care specialists typically have years of experience in performing home care assessments, making it possible for us to zero in on the specific care concerns of aging and disabled individuals. Without that kind of professional background, family caregivers can feel like they're left without a road map when trying to set up care for an elderly loved one. This can make it difficult to know when home care is needed and what level of care your loved one needs.
To make this process easier, the care experts at Visiting Angels have put together the following guide to help you understand what goes into a home care assessment.
Visiting Angels Pikesville has been in business since 2005. Some tasks our care providers perform include making sure your loved one is safe and secure, assisting with daily living needs, meal preparation, medication reminders, bathing, dressing and hygiene assistance,
light housekeeping, and fall prevention.
Once again this year, Visiting Angels of Pikesville will be putting together a Team and participating in the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's® on
October 28, 2017 in Baltimore. This year the Walk will be at the Canton Waterfront Park (last year's Walk was held at the Inner Harbor).We're thrilled that our Operations Coordinator, Marcy Silver, has been asked to serve on the Planning Committee for this year's Walk in Baltimore!
Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. Please join our team or make a donation to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.
