I’m one of four sisters. Oh yeah— and I’ve got a brother too. We’re always fighting over who the favorite is. And that’s because we are all so close, and we’re all on the same page when it comes to taking care of my mom since my dad passed away.

We’re always brainstorming to come up with new ideas to make her life simpler and to make her more comfortable as she gets older. But I think that I have found something that’s gonna make my mom love me the most! It’s called Visiting Physician Services, and it’s something that anyone with an elderly or homebound family member needs to know about. They provide medical care in the home so that elderly people don’t need to leave the comfort and safety of their homes to get the medical care they need. 

Visiting Physician Services has been doing this for 28 years. It’s pretty amazing, too. They make house calls and treat everything from minor ailments to chronic conditions. They can even do blood work and x-rays in the home! In fact, they will coordinate all of the patient’s medical care. Even dentistry!

If you’re a caregiver, as I am, not only does this make life easier for your loved one, but it makes it easier for you too. And they take Medicare! This is a win/win for my mom. She’s so excited about it. Believe me, she was not thrilled about going out in the snow this winter to see her doctor as it’s getting harder to get her out of the house.

To reach Visiting Physician Services to find out more and to find a doctor who comes to you, call 732-571-1000, email info@visiting-physician.com, or visit vpsdoctors.org.
