Peace of mind can be hard to come by when you’re caring for an elderly loved one. If it isn’t worrying about whether or not they are ok, it’s trying to organize your schedule around theirs or needing to run errands on their behalf instead of getting a bit of rest. Utilizing the services of a home care agency can make all the difference.
Care Advantage Plus, Charlottesville is one such agency. A franchise agency founded in 1988, their mission is to provide professional health and personal care services “whenever, wherever and whatever the need may be.” They offer:
- Companions for errands, doctor’s appointments, grocery shopping, housekeeping, medicine reminders, meal preparation and general companionship;
- Personal Care aides for all of the above and help with bathing, dressing, personal grooming and observation – so if there’s a health issue you’ve been monitoring, the aides will do the same; and
- Nurses for wound care, disease management, medicine administration and overall health care.

Of special note is the Care Advantage Plus Charlottesville Discharge Service.
