Dementia Care

One word best describes our Dementia Care program: customizable.

At Visiting Angels, we don’t take a cookie-cutter approach to dementia care services. We believe in offering choices and we can customize a care plan to meet your loved one’s needs.

Basic dementia education is available to all caregivers as part of our internal training program. After completing the training session and successfully passing the examination, caregivers receive a dementia care certificate. In addition to the basic training, we have partnered with several industry experts to offer advanced dementia training.

Through these partnerships, caregivers can receive specialty certifications in Alzheimer care, Activities Training, and other issues related to dementia and Alzheimer’s care. With so many options available, our caregivers can take advantage of a wide range of training programs. With Visiting Angels providing dementia care, you can be confident your loved one will be matched with a skilled caregiver.

Each Visiting Angels agency is a franchise that is independently owned and operated. The Franchisor, Living Assistance Services Inc., does not control or manage the day to day business operations of any Visiting Angels franchised agency.
