Visiting Angels advises on how to plan a vacation when caring for a senior relative.

Never compromise on providing high quality services to your family.

Summertime is the busiest time of year for vacations and brief getaways. Taking a break can be difficult and stressful for those taking care of aging relatives. Visiting Angels, a home care services provider in Nashua, advises caregivers on traveling or planning a vacation when caring for a senior relative.

Visiting Angels advises that caregivers complete an honest analysis for their need of a break, as well as an honest analysis of their loved one’s abilities. Can the relative’s needs be met where the caregiver is going? If not, how can the caregiver meet those needs while they are gone?

In order to have a stress-free vacation, the caregiver will need to make sure they find a temporary caregiver with the appropriate credentials. A needed vacation is never an enjoyed vacation if the caregiver spends the entire time worried about their loved one. Visiting Angels advises that clients provide the temporary caregiver a list of all the things their loved one needs.

Visiting Angels is a leading provider of senior home care. Their experienced caregivers are screened so that clients can rest assured their loved ones are properly cared for. Visiting Angels understands that the decision to invite another caregiver into the home is never easy. Clients are able to interview and choose a caregiver that is the best fit.
