Our Elder Care Services Caregivers

All caregivers from our Appleton office undergo a round of employment, background, and criminal history checks. Candidates are also screened on soft skills such as patience, humor, respect and a positive attitude. They must show that these traits are a natural part of their personalities in order to become a caregiver.

At Visiting Angels Appleton, we understand that it can be strange inviting a stranger into your home. That’s why we have developed a successful process to make this transition much more comfortable for everyone. We arrange interviews with several elder care services professionals right in your loved one’s home so you can confidently choose the most compatible caregiver.
