In some circles, this service is called ‘Private Duty Care’ but regardless of what it’s called, these new services provide a valuable – and often cost effective – way to help elderly or disabled people get back on their feet.

Everything from toiletry and wardrobe support, to friendly conversation and aid with remembering medicine can be tailored according to the client’s individual requirements. These services are a perfect supplement for long term care insurance or other nursing care policies, providing invaluable support for family members who may be facing an overwhelming challenge.
Visiting Angels Fredericksburg has supported families across the area for many years, but is always looking for ways to make it simpler for those seeking personalized care for a family member. With the new services, clients can now get a free at-home assessment where they’ll evaluate the individual’s situation, demands, and more to create a specialized plan of action. This could include in-home nursing, personal care, or companionship services.
After a comprehensive assessment and care plan is created, Visiting Angels Fredericksburg takes over. Caregivers are carefully chosen by head office for their perfect personality sync with loved ones, the hours they are available each week, and the required abilities to fulfil the prescribed plan of care.
Then, they are assigned to the client at the time and date specified by family or carer. They arrive equipped with everything needed to provide support and assistance with daily living tasks that they have been trained in. Plus, they are constantly monitoring progress to ensure all needs are being met – making changes as necessary.
All Visiting Angels Fredericksburg plans are tailored to fit the patient’s individual needs. From meal preparation and grocery runs, to household chores, and trips outside of the home- the agency can help with it all. Visiting Angels Fredericksburg also provides some much-needed company and companionship for those who may be feeling lonely or isolated. If any other specific requirements arise after an assessment is completed – the company is more than happy to oblige.
As they age, seniors can often feel confined and deprived of the joys of life. They may be unable to go out and enjoy outings, parties or other social events, or even simple things like gardening or cooking meals for their family.
Private care services offer much more than just practical support; new research has revealed that having an in-home caregiver on hand to lend a helping hand can truly enhance the elderly person’s mental health and bolster their enjoyment of life.
Visiting Angels is expanding its services in the greater Fredericksburg area – which includes King George, Lake of the Woods, Spotsylvania, Stafford, and surrounding areas.
The focus is on the provision of flexible, hourly care and comfort services including companionship, personal care (bathing, grooming and dressing), light housekeeping and errands.
A Visiting Angels spokesperson said, “Our specialized care services allow seniors who wish to stay in their homes the chance to get the aid they need. Our trained professionals can also provide help for those recuperating from a sickness, injury, or handicap.”
