If you or your loved one are in need of in-home care, you might be wondering what resources are available locally. Senior Homecare by Angels offers hometown help, with local caregivers who provide top quality care to our friends and neighbours.
What does “aging in place” mean?
Seniors who choose to “age in place” are choosing to remain in their homes, rather than moving into a live-in facility such as assisted living or a retirement residence. Aging in place means that our clients are choosing to age independently, maintaining their lifestyle and their preferences throughout the aging process. Senior care services facilitate aging in place for many seniors, enabling clients to get help with daily tasks while remaining in their own homes.
What services do you provide?
Senior Homecare by Angels is a local agency that provides in-home senior care services. We offer comprehensive companion care services, end of life care, Alzheimer’s and dementia care, and respite care. Our typical companion care services include medication reminders, light housekeeping, meal planning and preparation, fall prevention, personal hygiene assistance, and transportation to medical appointments, errands, community events, and more.
Can you work with assisted living facilities, nursing homes, and retirement residences?
Yes. Sometimes our clients move to a live-in facility only to realize that the care they receive there may not meet their daily needs. A Senior Homecare by Angels caregiver can be present around-the-clock or just a few hours a day, providing the personal care that may be missing in an institution as well as assistance with daily tasks and making sure your loved one stays safe and healthy.
What if I need to change my care plan, my schedule or my caregiver?
We’ll work with you to make sure that the in-home care you or your loved one is receiving continue to meet your needs. This means that we’ll work to accommodate schedule changes, or requests to change the individual caregiver working with you and your family. We know that care plans will need to change over time as medical and physical conditions change over time. We strive to be flexible and communicative, and our priority is providing the best possible care to you and your loved one.
