Home Health Services

There are various reasons a person may need human assistance around the home: a disability, an injury, illness, maternity. Most commonly, as we get older, the abilities we formerly took for granted become more challenging. When people try to ignore, or worse yet hide, these changes, they risk declining health, injury, and nursing home placement. Guardian Angels Home Health helps all of these people, but especially retirees, enjoy safe and healthy living in their own homes. We do this by sending specifically trained, caring professionals for as long as needed and as often as needed.

Often, the services of Guardian Angels Home Health is not just for a client, it’s for the client’s family as well. Too often, families and family caregivers underestimate the physical and emotional toll of caring for an aging loved-one. Instead of getting the assistance needed, they feel guilty for needing help. They expect other family members to help more, but get angry when that help is not as forthcoming as needed. Family strife and personal health declines as a result of the family caregiver role are well documented in the scientific literature. The amazing part is that just a little help, a few times per week, is often all that is needed to support the family caregiver sufficiently. This gives the family caregiver a little personal time – time to recharge his or her mental batteries. More importantly, the right assistance from Guardian Angels Home Health lets loved ones spend genuine quality time with each other.
