Senior Home Care
"Your assistance in finding a second caregiver when we needed two and you always being there to listen or give an encouraging word, cannot be measured."
At Visiting Angels we know it isn't easy to make the decision to invite a caregiver into your home to provide homecare. That's why our personalized screening system is designed to maximize your peace of mind. You'll have the opportunity to interview any caregiver that we refer to you. We let you choose the caregiver you trust.
We Recruit Experience!
You deserve to have a caregiver who is experienced in providing the services that are needed in your home. We don't believe in "on the job training!" Many of our caregivers have worked with us for years. Our caregivers have a strong employment history in caring for seniors and have references from reliable sources (previous clients, agencies, healthcare institutions, religious and volunteer organizations etc.). And Visiting Angels requires multiple interviews with each caregiver before they can be hired or referred to a client.
Visiting Angels runs a comprehensive background screening on each new caregiver. We also emphasize intangible traits such as a caring personality. When you try our service, you'll be pleasantly surprised to see that at Visiting Angels, character matters!
You Are In Charge
You are in charge of everything. Because we are a non-medical agency and not a nursing agency, Visiting Angels will not dictate to you what your schedule is to be (i.e. what time to wake up, when to bathe, meal schedules etc.). You are the boss. It is our job to adjust to your schedule and to keep you comfortable in your home.
You Can Afford The Best!
Our philosophy of homecare is to never compromise on providing high quality services to your family. Our system allows you to afford a top-quality caregiver. At Visiting Angels, we keep our overhead low to avoid passing high costs to you. In addition, we believe that our caregivers should be well paid and treated with respect. For this reason, we can attract and maintain the best quality caregivers available.
We're Proactive to Meet Your Needs
You won't get "lost in the shuffle" with us. Some agencies simply react to calls from clients rather than anticipating your needs in advance. We begin by reviewing your needs through discussions with family members and when necessary, with healthcare providers. Our service coordinator carefully selects the caregiver with the necessary experience and personality that is best suited to the needs of each client. Next, we arrange for the caregiver to visit your home so that you can participate in the selection process. After services begin, we implement our system of ongoing personalized contacts with your family to insure that the care recipient is receiving the best possible care.
