Homecare Services

At Visiting Angels of South County, we begin with a general assessment during the initial call and then arrange to meet with all involved family members in a no-cost, no obligation visit to the home or facility.

Next, working in conjunction with the family, we develop a individualized program to manage your loved one’s daily needs. We match these requirements to our most compatible caregiver, who we will then bring to the home for an introduction. Because relationships are an integral part of what we do, service will begin only after everyone has had the opportunity to meet and approve the caregiver.

After the Angel companion has been placed in your home, we maintain our unique system of continued personalized contacts through telephone check-ins and home visits. Most importantly, we are in constant communication with the caregiver on the case.
