Carefully Screened Elder Care Services Caregivers

At Visiting Angels Fond du Lac, our caregivers complete comprehensive employment, background, and criminal history checks before starting. And during our interview process, each candidate must exhibit that vital caregiving traits such as empathy, honesty, humor, and respect are part of their personality.
