“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 senior care services. That’s why we have created a personalized screening system that all Visiting Angels franchised senior home care agencies are trained to use (each office independently owned and operated). The screening program is designed to maximize your peace of mind. Whenever possible, you’ll have the opportunity to interview any caregiver we refer to you in advance of commencing services. When you choose Visiting Angels, you choose the caregiver you trust.
Finding an experienced senior care provider is at the top of your list. You deserve to have a senior care professional who is well trained and/or experienced or in providing home care services.
At Visiting Angels, we don’t believe in “on the job training”. We recruit caregivers who have a strong employment history in the senior care industry, or have received training in certification programs, to provide services for all clients who need personal care or assistance with hygiene. All prospective Visiting Angels caregivers are asked to demonstrate their knowledge of senior care services prior to joining our team. Many of our caregivers have worked with us for years.
We recommend to our franchised senior care agencies that they perform multiple interviews with each prospective caregiver prior to hiring them. We also encourage all our Visiting Angels agencies to obtain references on prospective caregivers from reliable sources (previous clients, agencies, healthcare institutions, certification training schools, volunteer organizations, etc.) before a caregiver is referred to a client.
At Visiting Angels, we know finding the right senior care professional is about finding the right caregiver. We’ll work closely with you and your family to find the senior care professional who has the skill set you require to put you at ease.
