World Smile Day: Capital City Nurses Put a Smile on Your Loved One's Face

One of the overwhelming concerns for adult children is the mental and emotional well-being of their aging parents. Throughout NW Washington, DC, many seniors tend to spend their days at home in relative isolation.

Seniors may feel uncomfortable in social situations on their own or have mobility or balance problems that create anxiety around the thought of leaving the house. In many cases, seniors would like to have regular interactions with friends and family, but distance and health issues prevent travel and regular time spent together. This lack of interaction creates sadness and a higher risk for the development of depression, but there is a solution.

Senior Care with a Difference

Choosing our home health care services is an ideal solution to this very real issue. Our senior companion program matches your loved one with our trusted, experienced, and compassionate caregivers. CapitalCity Nurses offers almost half a century of expertise in in-home care services throughout the NW Washington,DC, area and in the surrounding areas.

Our in-home care services start with a full evaluation and assessment of the needs of your loved one. The geriatric home care manager then creates a customized plan to provide companionship, support with daily activities,transportation, and a range of other in-home care services that are tailored to the needs of the senior.

We also carefully choose the professional senior care giving staff for your loved one.Having a regular staff member and a predictable schedule gives your elderly parent the confidence in knowing just when the caregiver will arrive and who it will be.
