"We strive daily to deliver the highest quality in-home care for our clients, and this award helps validate our delivery on that promise,” said Tom Thompson, Owner of Visiting Angels.

Online reviews help Americans research and select the best senior care providers for aging or ailing loved ones. In multiple research studies, the majority of family caregivers have indicated that they turn to the Internet and consumer reviews when narrowing their options among home care agencies in their area, and have relied on these perspectives as much as or more so than in-person recommendations from geriatric professionals or medical personnel. Now entering its seventh year, the Caring Stars annual list helps consumers see which home care agencies are top rated by other families just like theirs – which is particularly helpful as families gather for the holidays and discover increased or urgent senior care needs for their parents or grandparents.

"Congratulations to VISITING ANGELS for achieving this award after earning accolades on from clients and their loved ones," said Karen Cassel, CEO. "This important milestone speaks volumes about the positive difference VISITING ANGELS is making in serving older adults, and we celebrate their accomplishment."
