When there is someone there with my parents, it gives up peace of mind.

"Visiting Angels of Cape May is available for mid-level care. I don't have to go to hospice. They are only here once a week and help with certain chores.

--- Stan T.

"I just wanted to take a moment to let you know how grateful I am for the ways the Visiting Angels of Cape May cared for my mom and dad. My mom loved all the girls and dad, well, it took him a while to come around and, yes, he had his favorite! I appreciate the fact that your office always communicated with me about what was going on. It was difficult for me to be working a full-time job, running my own household, and trying to be available for mom and dad, and all that was happening in their world. But I would read the narrative that the girls would write and feel like I knew a little about their days. And that tablet... I was against it right away because my 89-year-old parents would never accept it. But boy, was I wrong! Mom enjoyed the music and dad loved watching the antique truck riders and listening to his "old-fashioned" music. Sometimes, I watched the girls as they interacted with mom and dad and they were always gentle and caring. I knew mom and dad were in good hands! Sina spent the most time with mom and dad because she was there Monday through Friday. Dad just clicked with her right away. Dad enjoyed just sitting and talking with her. Sina was awesome at what she does. She seems to have a heart for taking care of the elderly. Dad is adjusting to his new surroundings but still talks about Sina and how much he enjoyed her company. Please know that if anyone asks me about home care, your company is the one I would recommend to them. Thanks for doing what you do and for doing it so well!"
"We have had Visiting Angels of Cape May going to my mom's Nursing Home since we are unable to get inside. Our Angel has been the same girl that we now count on and depend on. She gives my mom all the help and care that she needs. We are very pleased with this organization and know that we made the right choice!"
--- Lorraine P.
"l am very glad that I chose Visiting Angels of Cape May for my 93 year old mom that is located in the VA Home. Due to the pandemic, we haven't been allowed in since 3/12. She was only there a little over a week when they shutdown. She faced leaving her home of 65 years and my dad's unexpected passing shortly after she was there. Once again, we could not get in to even console her and help her through her grief. She was used to an aide every day while she was at home. Mom thrives on the one on one help. She was very depressed, not eating, and always crying. I tried contacting other agencies before Visiting Angels of Cape May. I was not impressed. I knew from the first call to Visiting Angels of Cape May that I would be choosing them. Everyone that I spoke with actually heard my story. They were compassionate, called when they said they were going to, extremely thorough with my mom's assessment and contacting the VA Home directly. It has been roughly one month since Shevi has been going. Mom bonded with her great. Shevi is our voice and eyes now. We could not be happier with her and the choice that we made. Thank you so much!!!!"
--- Kristie T.
--- Christopher O.
"With the virus right now, the caregiver is our eyes and ears. She lets us know in her write up how her day went with my mother. She toilets her and always answers the phone when we want to talk to my mom or Zoom with her. She does her nails and exercises with her. I like our caregiver's personality and how thorough she is. Nothing appears to be a problem with her."
--- Lorraine E.
"I think they have a good personality and are willing to help when I need it. They listen to the problems I have and solve them. I wouldn't be able to function without them."
--- Richard N.
"His caregiver is perfect for him. They are sweet people. We have had three different girls. We finally got just one. She is just like my dad's daughter. She is always there and is very prompt. She takes him to the store. They go on walks. She helps him with his medicine. If he has little appointments, she will take him. She does his laundry and takes care of the cleaning. I have one of the staff member's number online. We text. They help me relay a message to the girl who comes here. They let them know if my dad won't be home."
--- Roe F. M.
"The caregivers are dedicated, loving, and caring. They help with washing, putting lotion on, making the bed, and getting lunch for my wife. There is nothing that they can't do or won't do. They go out of their way. They have been very cooperative and helpful."
--- Donald C.
"Our caregiver has a very engaging and pleasant personality. She is able to get him to do things that he wouldn't normally do. They offer special dementia care that he needs. They have engaged him in different activities instead of sitting around watching TV. She has gotten him to teach her how to paint."
--- Edward M.
"Our caregiver got along with her because they were compassionate, considerate, and very attentive. They did a great job managing her care and they were attentive to all of her needs."
--- Cathy C.
"I am very happy with Visiting Angels of Cape May. My husband has been ill and it was a struggle for all of us and it is a huge help. I am able to sleep at night, my life has definitely improved; they have turned out lives around. Our caregiver is always there and is always helpful; he is a self-starter. He does things without my telling him and he sees what needs to be done whether it is cleaning the floor or keeping him company and making him laugh. It is almost like it was meant to be because he could not be better, he matches our lifestyle perfectly. The staff is great too. They have reached out several times and everything is good."
--- Gail G.
"Visiting Angels of Cape May understands my mom and get to her needs and take care of them. They get her out of the house and keep her from being stuck inside all day. The security of knowing that someone is there at the same time every day, and she is being watched out for is priceless."
--- Daniel H.
"Visiting Angels of Cape May is very organized, their communication is great and I like the caregiver they sent. He's clean, strong, and organized. He does everything well. He's caring."
--- Anne B.
"We love our caregivers. A lot of it comes down to personality. They aren't executing a list of duties, but always looking and observing. They interact with her. I like their compassion and professionalism. They really care about their clients. They are reliable. They help with bathing and other functions she can't do alone."
--- Joseph C.
"The caregivers communicated very well and they asked me what I wanted them to do. They also wrote what was going on. I liked that they were very efficient and cleaned my husband and my house."
--- Amy F.
"Visiting Angels of Cape May continues to keep trying even though my mother is difficult. They don't let my mother get them down. They also follow through with me. They help her take a shower and do her exercise. I don't have to go there for three meals a day. I don't have to go to the grocery store. I don't have to worry about her medication. This is only part of what they do."
--- Cathy T.
"My caregiver was thoroughly trained and a delight to be with. She was well-trained at communicating and doing anything I needed her to do. She was very responsive to my needs. She was able to take me wherever I needed to go. She never sat around. She asked me what she could do for me."
--- Lois R.
"Visiting Angels of Cape May is wonderful. If there's anything going on, I hear from them. They fix his meals, get him to the bathroom and get him dressed. They mainly help with his daily living. I like that the caregivers are considerate and compassionate."
"I wanted to express my gratitude for the excellent care my father received from Mary and Crystal when his full-time live-in caregiver, Hannah, was away.
They both were very professional, kind, and patient with him. They adapted to an upset in his care when we had to have his home treated for insects. This was an unexpected situation and caught my husband and me by surprise. My father remained calm and often expressed his thoughts that the ladies were very nice. We too couldn't thank them enough for how smoothly things went when we were not expecting this while Hannah was away and "his routine" was changed. They both are keenly aware of best practices dealing with dementia. They tailored fitted their knowledge with his needs and personality.
Please let them know THANK YOU from us again!
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to others with care needs."
"My experience with Visiting Angels of Cape May was wonderful and comforting. Great caregivers and the staff works with you to find the "right" match for your loved one. You can leave and know your loved one is being cared for with love and compassion."
--- Dawn S.
--- Rick S.
"My caregivers came when I called. If I had a problem within two or three minutes, someone was there to help me. They made sure my room was clean. If anything was dropped, it was cleaned up right away. I couldn't do anything because I had a cast on my arm. They showed me how to take care of my arm once my cast was taken off."
--- Veronica R.
"I like the attentiveness, and the live-in caregiver they sent us is wonderful. She makes sure my father gets out and takes him places. She's like a friend to him and goes above and beyond, she sings with him and is like a companion to him."
--- Ellen S.
"All the young ladies that I have met have shown real compassion towards my parents. I work full-time, so just knowing they are there 24/7 and that they are trained in what to look for gives me peace of mind. They do light housekeeping, prepare meals, take care of physical needs, change my mom's pajamas and diaper; they do everything. The staff keeps me updated on the good and the bad. My dad is not very personable and doesn't always like it when they are there. It helps me to know what the caregivers are dealing with. A couple of them did not work out, but that is because of my father, not them. The one that is there now is just a perfect match for them."
--- Debbie L.
"I don't know what I would do without Visiting Angels of Cape May. They are prompt, caring, and extremely helpful. A lot of it is driving and care in the house by keeping things tidy. They understand my needs, and if there are any questions or concerns, they get back to me immediately."
"I can barely walk, so Visiting Angels of Cape May helps me with that. I like that they provide great care for me."
"Our caregiver was very conscientious. Her task was assisting and caring for my wife. I liked that they were very consistent, and once we determined what my wife's needs were, they were flexible, on time, and covered their shifts."
"The two most important things to us is that Visiting Angels of Cape May's communication is immediate and they follow through with what they say they're going to do. The consistency and personality of the caregivers are the most helpful part of the services. They're very easy to work with!"
"Visiting Angels of Cape May is very cooperative. I can call Jackie at any time, and they handle it. Jackie, Debbie, and Lorrie are fantastic. Our aide is a tremendous caregiver. They bathe her, put lotion on her, clothe her. She cleans up every bit of mess. She does a tremendous job and they have really bonded together."
"I like that they are very caring, and they look out for my mom. They get along because my mother likes to talk, so they listen to her. I appreciate that they think about her needs, like the other day, they took her to the zoo. They think outside of the box."
"Visiting Angels of Cape May is very helpful with my mom. They have been very helpful in cleaning the floors and the bathrooms. They are able to get her mail and take her to the doctor. They are willing to bend over backward when there are scheduling issues. They are very kind. Whenever we have had an issue with a caregiver, we have called, and they were not sent again. For me personally, they give me time to relax and know that someone is taking care of my mom."
"Whenever I've had a situation and have called, they've always responded quickly. It was almost instantaneous. They are very accommodating and have tried to work in difficult situations. They tend to her personal needs, like showering."

--- Cammie G., Ocean City, NJ
"My loved one had a major stroke and it left them very weak. The caregivers have given the exact hands-on care that my loved one needs. They encourage my loved one to be as independent as possible. I could not be more pleased with them. The aides are caring, understanding and they explain what they will do. This relieves a lot of my anxiety! Everyone who has come has been empathetic and caring I really could not be more satisfied."

The quality of care is very good. The caregivers are doing the care that I wouldn't be comfortable doing for my mother. They're there all the time, which I wouldn't be able to do, so that if something should happen, there's someone there with my mother!"
---Denise A., Cape May, NJ
"Visiting Angels of Cape May took good care of my mother when they came to take care of her. I would recommend that anyone that needs hospice should use Visiting Angels of Cape May.

---Bernadina S., Vineland, NJ

“I want you all to know what a gem you have in Sheltina! Last Sunday, Tina called me because she had concerns about my mom who was coughing. She suggested that I call the doctor, which I did. They sent someone out on Tuesday to get a chest x-ray of my mom. Yesterday, I received a call that my mom has pneumonia. Of course I was upset and concerned because I am two hours away! Tina made arrangements to get the prescription from CVS, an antibiotic, which obviously my mom needed. I can’t tell you how relieved I was. If it hadn’t been for her insight, who knows. She truly is an Angel! I call her my mom’s “Guardian Angel!” Thank You!!"
--- Kathy L., Ocean City, NJ

Kudos to Karen, Emily, Isaiah, and Eileen. They have helped lift our spirits, carry our burdens, and lighten our loads. They have all been so kind and loving, so helpful and gentle, and so caring and compassionate. I can’t say enough how deeply we appreciate all they have done for our family during this deeply difficult season of our lives. They truly are angels from heaven. As I work in the medical field myself, I am even more appreciative of the care they are giving to Jim. It is an incredible blessing not only to him, but to me. Thanks again to your wonderful company for providing such exceptional, caring companions."

--- Steve G., Cape May Court House, NJ
"From the first phone call to Visiting Angels of Cape May I knew I had made the right decision. At the time Donna, from Visiting Angels of Cape May, met with me at my Mom's apartment. I explained my mother's condition and my expectations. My mother has had her aide, Sheltina since November (who Visiting Angels of Cape May felt was the right fit). She goes above and beyond the call of duty......is flexible on short notice, and knows how to handle my Mom, who sometimes can be difficult. It gives me peace of mind to know that my Mom is being looked after when I cannot be there. They truly are angels!"
--- Kathy, Cape May, NJ
"Terrific care for my grandfather when he was in need!"
--- Amanda B.
"Visiting Angels of Cape May was excellent all around. They were professional, organized, and sent out nurses to do evaluations. It was overnight service. It was fantastic. My mom was bedridden... They made sure she was kept clean. They did everything well. They rolled her every two hours, even if it was just for two hours they would put a pillow under her. She never had a bed sore. If she opened her eyes overnight, they would offer her something to eat or drink."
--- Ruth Ann H.
"I live two miles away from my father, and the caregivers are there and that makes a big difference. I am at work now, and I am 50 minutes away, so they can help him. His two care nurses are excellent. From what he tells me, they do what needs to be done... They call to do follow-ups because my father has a lot of doctor's appointments. They are very tentative to what's going on."
--- Noah S.
"The caregivers that my grandmother has had are very caring and they take good care of her. I am able to go to work while they're with her. It takes some of the stress off of me. They're good at pretty much everything. They all care, which is very important to my grandmother... Their communication is wonderful. If there's an issue with my grandmother or someone can't make it, they will ask if someone else can come. They are about her and listen to her."
--- Krista B.
"I like that Visiting Angels of Cape May is very flexible and understanding. They have helped me the most with everything from groceries to cleaning up. They help me with going out and gardening. They make the bed and assist with meals."
--- Diane M.
"My schedule changes so much. It's hard to get the same kind of people. They try to match based on personality. They try to match up the right caregiver with my dad. That's very important. They have compassion and patience with my father. I like the fact that they get back to you. They're very efficient in that way, and they're very accommodating at finding replacements at the last minute. Right now I'm very happy. I look for somebody who does what they're supposed to do with compassion and patience."
--- Sandy S.
"Visiting Angels of Cape May is very prompt and professional. They're always considerate of her needs and listen to what she wants. They follow instructions and do what is needed. They get her dressed, prepare meals, and provide companionship. They're very thorough and their emails are very understandable and explanatory. I am never left guessing or with questions. They are professional and considerate. They are knowledgeable about the care needed."
--- Donn T.
"Visiting Angels of Cape May is very proactive and they're sensitive to the needs of the client... My mom looks forward to seeing someone beside me."
--- Jan C.
"Visiting Angels of Cape May is totally reliable, respectful, and very caring. It has given us a tremendous amount of relief. They assist her with all of her activities of daily living. I live a distance from the Smith's and the office staff, particular Eilee, has kept me abreast of everything that is going on. I appreciate their punctuality, dedication to what they are doing, and each one of them is a talented caregiver... They have been truly exemplary at providing care."
--- Emily C.
"Kwame continually exemplified medical professionalism, human values, and religious morals. He and my uncle formed a bond beyond the contract parameters. They truly liked and respected each other. Kwame is extremely caring and devoted to his duties and often went above and beyond. I sincerely believe that anyone in his care is not just lucky, they are blessed. Using your company name, he is not just an angel, but an archangel in his work. I would be eager to speak with any prospective client about their good fortune."
