At Visiting Angels, we have introduced a comprehensive and fully personalized system that all of our franchised home care agencies have been trained to utilize, including our Gaithersburg office. The main objective of our process is to provide you peace of mind by allowing you to interview any caregiver in advance of any services being provided. We aim to keep you involved in every stage of the process, not just in the beginning phases.
Finding the right caregiver can be a daunting task, but finding the right one with the right knowledge and accompanying expertise should be at the top of your list. Most importantly, you should entrust your senior loved one to the care of a caregiver who is adequately trained and fully versed in the best home care practices possible.
Settling for average care just isn’t an option when you are talking about your loving parent, grandparent or family member, which is why Visiting Angels knows that the only way to grow is to provide the right compassionate care.
At Visiting Angels Gaithersburg, our company model doesn’t call for “on the job training” as we only believe in hiring the best caregivers with extensive senior care experience and who have completed the accompanying healthcare certification programs. Our caregivers are available to provide quality essential personal home care services, including personal care needs and assistance with hygiene. An unskilled caregiver may only be utilized if no such care need is called for and may help in instances where more errands are needed or general housekeeping. This keeps our trained caregivers focused on providing the care they have been trained to do and most of our employees have been with us for many years.
We perform multiple interviews with prospective caregivers prior to hiring them. We utilize a more thorough hiring process than most agencies and ask that our hiring managers obtain the needed references on prospective caregivers to ensure that we are hiring the best of the best available home care providers. Our references come from reliable sources such as previous employers, clients, healthcare institutions, certification training programs, volunteer organizations and so on. These references are cycled through before any caregiver is given the opportunity to work with a client.
At Visiting Angels Gaithersburg, we will work tirelessly with you and your family to find then right home health care provider with the skill set and experience to provide the best in-home senior care for your loved one.
