|Let an Angel Help You Care for Your Loved One|
|Written by Debbie Waldecker, Owner|
(Sun City Center, FL) - In a perfect world, you would be able to take care of your aging parent in your home or theirs, relying only on family to help you. But the reality is that caring for an aging or ill parent is a full-time job that can take a toll on the caregiver; add to that the demands of raising a family, working, and other responsibilities, and chances are you’ll need a little assistance along the way.
That’s where the angels come in. Visiting Angels located at 3830 Sun City Center Blvd. #102 in Ruskin is a non-medical senior homecare agency/nurse registry providing senior homecare to help elderly and older adults continue to live in their homes. These caring, experienced home caregivers provide up to 24-hour care in the comfort of your own home.
You can be confident that your caregiver is qualified and has excellent references. “We hire only experienced caregivers who pass a rigorous screening process.” The company also emphasizes the intangible traits of the caregiver, such as a caring personality. Many of the company’s caregivers have grown tired of the Medicare model taking over healthcare and appreciate the opportunity to do one-on-one personal care.
The staff at Visiting Angels works with each family to develop an individualized program to manage the daily needs of the client. They then match those needs to the best possible caregiver; caregivers are then introduced to the family, who has the final say in the selection process.
“We want our clients to look forward to a visit by their caregiver,” says owner, Debbie Waldecker. “That’s why the client is in complete control from start to finish.” After the caregiver has been placed in your home, the company continues its personalized contact through telephone check-in and home visits to make sure you and your caregiver are a good match.
The caregivers at Visiting Angels provide an array of help in many categories. They can aid in simple housekeeping, like cleaning and dusting, or doing someone’s laundry. Homemaker companions can also prepare meals, run simple errands or provide transportation for those that can no longer drive or move around independently. Hygiene and grooming are fundamentals that should be kept up with for a person’s health and dignity. These services are provided by certified nurse’s assistants or home health aids. In addition to these services, caregivers are able to do medication reminders and assist with all activities of daily living. Caregiver skill levels range from homemaker/companion, to CNA/HHA, to LPN/RN.
Visiting Angels provides care locally throughout Hillsborough and Polk counties.
