Who We Are

Visiting Angels has been providing elder care services to families across the United States since 1998. Our network of senior care franchised agencies is committed to providing families with the best possible senior in-home care services. Our commitment to you is simple: We’ll help your loved one continue to live at home, and we’ll help you find peace of mind.

Visiting Angels – Fort Myers, operating in southern Lee County, FL, is one of the Nation's leading providers of non-medical in-home senior care in the Fort Myers, Estero and Bonita Springs, FL area. The elder care services such as assistance with meal preparation, personal care, laundry, transportation, light housekeeping and errands are personalized to meet each individual's needs and are provided by our Angels - experienced, trained, passionate caregivers. The senior in-home care we provide allow our senior citizens to remain in the comfort of their own homes and maintain a sense of self-worth and independence.

 

Visiting Angels of SW Florida is owned and operated by Kathleen Fleming, RN, BS, CDP, Executive Director and Karen Hill, Director of Finance. Our on-call office staff is available 24 hours a day to respond to unplanned emergencies and meet all of your senior homecare needs.

 

One of the biggest differences between Visiting Angels and its competitors is that EVERY client is assessed by an experienced Registered Nurse prior to the start of services. Although our elder services are non-medical, this gives us the opportunity to identify any underlying health and personal issues.  By doing this, we are able to provide the caregivers with a thorough understanding of the client's physical, nutritional and emotional needs. Following the initial assessment, the RN creates a plan of care for the caregiver to follow, along with ongoing assessments throughout the duration of services. This initial assessment also provides us with the opportunity to identify any unmet medical needs. If needed, we can make referrals to professionals, such as physicians and skilled home health agencies, to provide our clients with medical services that will additionally enhance their lives and physical well-being.

 

Visiting Angels of SW Florida also understands the importance of the safety and security of our clients and has partnered with ClearStar, a company that provides background screening on all of our caregivers that exceeds the State of Florida requirements.  This screening utilizes national databases to conduct local and federal felony and misdemeanor convictions, previous names and addresses, as well as motor vehicle/driving history reports for the previous 7 years. We know how difficult it is to invite strangers into your home and this screening program ensures our clients that we are conducting the best investigations available.

 

If you have a spouse, parent, loved one or friend that is struggling with accomplishing tasks that were once a part of their daily routine, or has a short-term need following hospitalization or surgery,  please give us a call for a complimentary personal assessment conducted by a Registered Nurse to discuss your home care options.

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.
