Our Local Story
In 2008, when local Joplin MO Visiting Angels agency owner Nate Stokes was ready to change careers, he knew he wanted to be in the business of helping others. Nate’s family had used a home care agency to keep his grandparents at home and he realized how beneficial that service was to his family in their time of need. So when he heard a Visiting Angels ad on the radio, Nate decided to make a difference and help other families keep their loved ones out of nursing homes by opening his own Joplin Missouri Visiting Angels home care agency.
In the 1980's Jeffrey Johnson was employed as Director of Social Work in a nursing home in the Baltimore, Maryland area. He listened as families of clients often expressed frustration that they had few alternatives other than to place their loved ones in the nursing facility. Before long, Jeffrey resolved to establish his own business to provide care for homebound senior citizens.
In the summer of 1991, Jeffrey resigned from his position with the nursing home and started a private duty non medical home care agency called "The Senior Care Group, Inc." in Baltimore. Now in its second decade, the agency that Jeffrey established has serviced great numbers of clients and has established an excellent reputation in the Baltimore, MD area.
The Birth of Visiting Angels
In 1998, Jeffrey joined with three other directors (including two with extensive experience operating their own private duty non medical home care agencies) to establish Visiting Angels as a nationwide network of home care agencies. In just 4 years this goal had been realized.
