Do you want to learn more about non-medical home care services from Senior Homecare by Angels? Read answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about how we help seniors in London, ON.
If you’re ready to start receiving in-home senior care for yourself or a family member in London, ON, knowing more about our services and what it’s like to work with us can help set your mind at ease about inviting a stranger into your home. Non-medical care at home for seniors is gaining in popularity every year, and at Senior Homecare by Angels, we take pride in increasing the quality of life for each of our clients and helping our neighbors age in place.
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 nursing home. Aging in place means that our clients are choosing to age independently, maintaining their lifestyle and their preferences throughout the aging process. Non-medical home care facilitates aging in place for many seniors, enabling clients to get help with daily tasks while remaining in their own homes.
What non-medical home care services do you provide in London, ON?
We offer comprehensive companion care services, end of life care, Alzheimer’s and dementia care, and respite care. Our typical companion care model includes medication reminders, light housekeeping, meal planning and preparation, fall prevention, personal hygiene assistance, and transportation to medical appointments, errands, community events, and more. We can provide short-term, long-term, and 24-hour care. No matter what your loved one needs, you can rest assured they'll be in capable hands with Senior Homecare by Angels.
I am interested in getting non-medical home care. How do I get started?
Contact our London, ON office! Our representative will contact you to set up a free, no-obligation assessment of your needs, and discuss what kind of care will be right for you and your family. Then, we’ll identify caregivers who have the right blend of experience and personality traits to be a good match, and you’ll be able to interview and meet that caregiver. With your approval, your new caregiver can begin working with you and your family within 48 hours.
Can you work with retirement residences or nursing homes?
Yes. We know that even clients in live-in facilities may have additional mental, social, and cognitive needs. A Senior Homecare by Angels caregiver can be present around-the-clock or just a few hours a day, providing 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 senior care services 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 non-medical home care to you and your loved one.
