  • Mobility

Housekeeping:

  • Special diet; food allergies
  • Help with grocery shopping and preparing meals
  • Housekeeping tasks

Schedules for:

  • Eating

After our initial meeting, we will build an elder care services plan that is designed for your loved one. Our elder care services plans are flexible, too, so they can easily be revised if your needs and schedules change.  

Caregiver Screenings

At Visiting Angels Beaver Dam, our caregivers complete an employment screening process that includes employment, background, and criminal history checks. All applicants must also be able to show that they have the right blend of knowledge and qualities like compassion, honesty, and patience.

Caregiver Compatibility

We know how awkward it is to have a stranger come into your home. We make the transition as smooth as possible by scheduling several caregiver interviews right in your loved one’s home. This trusted process lets you and your loved one select your most compatible caregiver and it quickens the path to a friendly relationship.
