We understand how difficult it can be to invite a stranger into your home to provide care for a cherished family member. How will this person adapt to you, and you to her (or him)? Will she be conscientious? Competent? Trustworthy? Caring? Such concerns can stop you in your tracks.
VISITING ANGELS dissolves those concerns. Our screening of caregivers is as rigorous as you will find anywhere in the nation. We demand an unblemished work record in private-duty home care, outstanding references, genuine sensitivity, and transparent honesty in all communications with us. And no one performs more extensive background checks than we do.
The caregivers we hire must pass the ultimate test: would we entrust our own family members to their care?
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”! Our caregivers have a strong employment history in caring for seniors and have reliable references from previous clients, agencies, religious and volunteer organizations, healthcare institutions, etc.
Visiting Angels runs a comprehensive background screening on each new caregiver. However, 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.
Your schedule is our schedule! It is our job to adjust to your schedule and to keep you comfortable in your home.
You can afford the best
Our home care philosophy 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.
We anticipate 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 health-care 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.
Our services include:
- Up to 24 Hour Care
- Assistance in Hygiene
- Meal Preparation
- Medication Reminders
- Light Housekeeping

We respond after hours in fifteen minutes or less!
If you call a home care agency in the evening or on weekends, nothing is more frustrating than to receive an answering message and wait long periods of time for a return call.
If you receive a voice message when you call us, we’ll call back within fifteen minutes. We’re committed to serving your needs in the way that’s most convenient for you!
