Part of a national organization, Visiting Angels in the East Valley of greater Phoenix is a non-medical home care provider who approaches care from a holistic perspective – always focusing on the bigger picture, not just the immediate need. Aside from offering assistance with activities of daily living to families in need, they focus on educating their clients and their families as well as the community at large. Monthly self-help classes are offered year-round through their RESOURCE SOURCE program to teach families how to navigate their journey through aging, transition, memory loss and changing health.
“As our population of people living with dementia continues to rise, our focus has shifted to include many more opportunities for these individuals and their families. Providing additional trusted and appropriate support professionals, engagement opportunities and service options to fulfill specific and unique needs opens the door to increased quality of life. Education is power and so is choice,” shares Elaine Poker-Yount, Director of Care Management. “We are blessed to be in a community that has begun to adopt similar goals. We are able to partner with other national and local organizations to spread the word on how to live with dementia more positively and more successfully.”
