Why Elderly Care by Visiting Angels

At Visiting Angels, we realize it is never easy bringing someone into your home to provide elderly care services.  That’s why we strive to make staying at home a positive experience.  We do this by allowing you to select your caregiver from a group of experienced  elderly care providers, allowing you to maintain your schedule and providing you or your loved one with personalized elderly care services.

 

You Are In Charge – We’re On “Your” Schedule

With Visiting Angels, you’re in charge of everything.  Your Visiting Angels elderly care provider will not dictate to you what your schedule is to be (i.e. what time to get up, when to bathe, meal schedules, etc.).  It is our job to adjust to your schedule and to see to it that you remain comfortable in your home.  Visiting Angels – Senior Home Care at its Best!

 

Bonded, licensed and insured

Your locally owned and operated Visiting Angels office is licensed by the state of Nevada and is insured and bonded.  This can give you the peace of mind that a trustworthy elderly care provider will be in your loved one’s home.

 

Monitoring is essential

At Visiting Angels’ we continually monitor our elderly care providers through our system of continued personalized contacts.  Through telephone check-in’s and home visits, we will be checking regularly with your loved one.  We want to ensure that our elderly care recipients receive the best possible care.

 

Tailor your care to your needs

No two people are the same.  Therefore their elderly care needs are going to be very different.  Whether you need respite care, in home care, part time or full time care, or care at an assisted living facility, Visiting Angels can provide an experienced elderly care provider that is right for you.  Our agency tailors your program of elderly care based on your needs.  Your elderly care program is flexible and you can change the program as different needs arise.  We will also work along with any home health agency or nursing agency that may be assisting your loved ones after a recent hospital stay.

 

Visiting Angels Reno

Senior Citizen Housing Choices Are Ready For Today’s Baby Boomer Retirees by Susan Elizabeth

When it comes time to retire from work, there are some significant choices that you will need to make. One of them is whether you will continue to get up at the same time in the morning as when you had to go to work. Most people opt to not get up as early, but some still like doing that because it is such a habit.

Another choice is about where you want to live after retirement. It isn’t like anyone is saying you have to leave your house if you don’t want to, but many people think that finding an alternative kind of senior citizen housing is more appropriate than where they currently live.

There are so many baby boomers who are retiring right now, that there has been kind of a boom in the amount of places available for seniors to live in. There are a great amount of active retirement communities and assisted living facilities and even more and more nursing homes for people who need a lot of extra help.

But as far as where you are supposed to live, that is something that is completely up to the individual. And that kind of choice is one of the big characteristics of baby boomers; expecting to have a large amount of choice over their lives. That idea of being in charge of your own life certainly has not changed appreciably in any way since back when the boomers were in college.

In general, there are three choices in senior housing. These are identified by the amount of extra nursing and personal care that the residents require throughout the day. The active senior communities are where the folks live who need the least amount of extra personal care during the day. These are often based around sports like golf or tennis and have very active people living there.

The nursing home setups are where the people live who need the most extra assistance. These are staffed by nurses and doctors 24 hours a day and the people who live there need the most amount of extra care during the day.

In the middle are the assisted living facilities where people who need just a small amount of extra personal or nursing care live. This can be a place like a senior apartment complex or an entire community full of small homes where the residents live.

But no matter what amount of extra assistance a person needs after retirement, the internet can certainly help you find the best senior citizen housing option for you and your particular situation.
