When selecting senior care in Athens, it’s important to choose an agency that accurately represents their credentials, caregivers’ skills, and services. But this process can feel overwhelming for families that are new to home care.  

At Visiting Angels® Athens, we know this can be a stressful time, and we’re here to help. When interviewing senior care agencies, we recommend opening the conversation with questions that will give you insight into each agency’s caregivers, services, and availability.

  1. Caregivers:

    • What are your hiring requirements?

    • How are caregivers paired with clients

    • What if the caregiver chosen isn’t a good fit?

  2. Services:

    What services do you offer?
    • Do you customize your services?

    • What happens if needs change?

  3. Availability:

    • When are your caregivers available?

    • What if we have an emergency?

How Senior Care from Visiting Angels Athens Stacks Up

At Visiting Angels Athens, we are dedicated to providing exceptional senior care and are pleased to share how we stack up when compared to other agencies in the local area.  

First and foremost, we are incredibly choosy when hiring new caregivers to our team in Athens. We look for candidates with previous experience in senior care and strong references that can easily pass a thorough background and criminal history checks. But we also look for relationship-building qualities that can’t be found on resumes, including kindness, compassion, a sense of humor, and the ability to engage with others.

When selecting a caregiver for your loved one, we’ll choose the caregiver from our team that fit’s your loved one’s needs, personality, and schedule. We are proud of our reputation for making great matches, but if you feel it’s not the right fit for any reason, simply let us know and we’ll be happy to suggest another caregiver.  

We offer a wide range of customizable services at Visiting Angels Athens, and our care plans can be easily modified when needs change. Just a few of the non-medical services we provide include:

  • Help with mobility

  • Light housekeeping

  • Meal preparation

  • Medication and fluid reminders

  • Companionship

  • Transportation

  • Respite care

  • Personal care, including bathing and grooming

  • Memory care

  • Wandering prevention

At Visiting Angels Athens, our scheduling is just as flexible as our senior care plans. Our caregivers are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year on a full-time, part-time, and occasional basis. If an unexpected need ever arises, clients and their families can call our after-hours number for a return call in 15 minutes or less.
