About Visiting Angels

Meet Our North Carolina Foothills Owners

Keith and Elizabeth Barlow Gray co owners of Visiting Angels Senior Homecare of the Catawba Valley area proudly serving Caldwell, Catawba, Burke and Alexander Counties.

Keith and Elizabeth have been married for 25 years and are the proud parents of two sons. Elizabeth has lived in the area all of her life and Keith moved to the area 30 years ago. Both are graduates of Appalachian State University. Keith earned a BSBA in Business Management and Elizabeth earned a BSBA in Community Health Education.

Elizabeth was previously a Social Worker and Keith worked at Lowes Corporate Office. They both sold Real Estate for years in the Catawba Valley area before opening Visiting Angels.

Keith and Elizabeth have a passion for serving the community in which they live and enjoy helping others, especially the elderly. So it was a natural progression in their careers to open a Senior Homecare business together.

Keith holds a certification as a DCP (Dementia Care Professional). This is designation through the AFA (Alzheimer’s Foundation of America). This is a national designation that vets Visiting Angels as professional care partners, building relationships with those with whom they work that have dementia, and helps them focus on the humanity and strengths of each individual and to become attuned to individual goals, desires, and preferences. In this way, Visiting Angels supports individuals in living meaningful and self-determined lives.

Keith also holds the designation of CSA (Certified Senior Advisor). CSA certification means that he understands the key health, social, and financial factors that are important to older people and how these factors work together. It means being educated on the practical implications of the aging process and how it impacts the lives of seniors and their families. It also means holding the highest ethical standards and building trust and relationships with our seniors.

Each Visiting Angels agency is a franchise that is independently owned and operated. The Franchisor, Living Assistance Services Inc., does not control or manage the day to day business operations of any Visiting Angels franchised agency.
