Finding a good home health care can be difficult. You want value for the money, and often such services are expensive, but there is always an option.
We provide essential home health care to the elderly and disabled throughout Lakewood, Lake Highlands, East Dallas, Park Cities and surrounding Dallas neighborhoods. We are a locally owned and operated agency providing top-notch in-home senior care.
What is Home Health Care?
Many of us take for granted the idea that our home is our castle. We can sit at a desk and work in it. We can entertain guests in it. We have a backyard garden, or play outside on the back patio.
In many ways, the home is like a building with a heart, and these days people are recognizing this fact more and more throughout the country. Our homes are not only part of our lives; they are also part of the communities we live in and serve as centers of community life. The American dream is to own your own home, and taking care of your family’s health through home health care in Dallas is one way to do this for yourself and your loved ones.

We have been providing quality in-home senior care to our clients for over 25 years. We specialize in caring for individuals who are experiencing the most difficult of challenges including Alzheimer’s, dementia and other physical ailments, as well as those who need assistance with housekeeping, cooking, medications and other daily living needs.
We have a rigorous screening process to ensure that our clients are receiving the proper care that they need. We go above and beyond what is required by federal or state guidelines to make sure that every client receives the highest level of personalized attention from a dedicated staff.
While an experienced staff provides the highest level of care possible for each client, we also provide training opportunities for all our staff in order to help them maintain their skills in a competitive marketplace.
Our agency utilizes skilled emergency medical technicians (EMT) and nurse practitioners (NPs) who offer high quality home health care services but also provide a wide range of other services that are mandated by local, state or federal laws.

Home Health Care Services Provided by Visiting Angels Dallas
Home health care is a critical part of the end-to-end healthcare experience. Home health care includes many different services and the best service is often not that which is the most expensive. Rather, those who are closest to the patient’s home (and kin) are the best caregivers. Visiting Angels Dallas provides a full range of in-home nursing, hospice and skilled nursing care, along with independent living services such as home health aide and companion services.
How to Choose the Right In-Home Senior Care Agency for You and Your Loved One
There are many home health care agencies in Dallas and throughout the country. But how do you know which one is right for you?
If you are a first-time home health care client, it is best to choose an agency that has been in business for a long time and that offers the highest level of personalization when it comes to how your loved one will receive care. This can mean working with a mix of agencies and service providers ranging from broad scope providers, to specialized support services.
If you want more personalized care, choosing an agency with highly trained individuals who have extensive experience on your loved one’s condition and specific needs will give you the most personalized experience possible. You can expect the same level of comfort and care but with a higher likelihood of being matched to a provider who knows exactly what your loved one needs.
I hope this has been useful. It is often the case that when you sit down to write a post, it may not come out as well as you would like. But please don’t get discouraged. You can only write the best posts you can write and if your posts are not optimal, nothing else will be. Also, I should point out that this post is far from the first on my blog, so please don’t take it personally if this doesn’t quite live up to your expectations.
A little aside: I think there are some huge challenges in writing about health care for everyone – especially in Dallas, which borders on rural and is so urbanized (read: lots of people with cars). There are also practical challenges such as how to make use of your time and how do you get paid for all the things you do. Thankfully though there is a solution to all these issues: angels!
