Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between Home Care and Home Health Care?
Home Care is the service that we provide here at Angels at Home. Our home care aides are trained to understand the nuances of working with the elderly and those with special life situations, such as dementia, and aid in activities of daily living which may include bathing, dressing, mobility support, housekeeping, meal preparation, laundry, medication reminders, and errands. Home care can be categorized as personal care or companion care, whereas home health care can be considered clinical medical care. Home health care is provided by a registered nurse, occupational therapist, physical therapist or other skilled medical professional. This type of service is more medical in nature and akin to things that might happen in the hospital.
What services does Angels at Home provide?
Home care services are tailored to each patient and their specific needs. One of our most common services here at Angels at Home is dementia care, as we have a trained team of certified Dementia Care Specialists to provide memory care for your loved one. Other services include providing help with daily tasks for your loved one, such as bathing, dressing, using the restroom, mobility, light housekeeping, meal preparation, errands, medication reminders, etc. Every patient is different and requires a different level of assistance.

Who will be coming into the resident’s home? Will I get to choose who comes?
Here at Angels at Home, I provide the same exceptional in-home care for your family as I do for my parents, and that all begins with our team of caregivers. Our caregivers are provided with CPR and First Aid training as well as specific training for home care services to ensure that your loved one is provided with the best care. They are hard-working, reliable, honest, and passionate individuals whom I would trust in my own home to take care of my parents. They are also licensed, bonded, and insured, and we conduct criminal background checks through the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office. Our office staff and team of schedulers schedule each caregiver for a specific patient, however, if you would like to request a specific individual or have concerns about who will be taking care of your loved one, don’t hesitate to contact us!
Does the same caregiver visit my loved one every week?
We work hard to ensure that the same caregiver, or group of caregivers, visits your home each week. We understand that knowing who is taking care of your loved one is important, and so is knowing who is entering your home. We work to keep the size of your caregiver team small, and the variability in your caregivers as small as possible so that you can feel comfortable knowing exactly who is taking care of your loved one.
