We serve the elderly community by providing a much needed non-medical living assistance service that will help adults to continue living in their own home and familiar surroundings.
Our office was started by sisters, Mij Dechman and Jimmie Lee Riverkamp, who have a personal interest in this area. They along with their children and spouses cared for their parents at their own home till their passing. Their father had Alzheimer’s that continued for 8 years, then the ongoing care of assisting their mother for 7 years, which ended with her having strokes and Lewy Body Dementia which was a very trying time for the family. They saw a great need for non-medical homecare services to assist families with caring for their loved ones.
Mij’s background was in the health care field as an occupational therapist assistant working with the school district and in nursing homes. Jimmie Lee’s background has been in the legal field as a Legal assistant. She worked for the prestigious law firm Baker Botts in Austin Tx. She along with her sister
cared for their parents for 10 years prior to their passing. Since opening Visiting Angels, Mij has passed on but her daughter, Courtney Williams, has stepped in to fill her shoes. Courtney is also an occupational therapist assistant and brings many years of experience.
In 2021, we welcomed K'Leigh Pish to our office team as the Business Development Client Care Coordinator. She is a graduate from Texas State University and has background in phlebotomy and caregiving.
The Visiting Angels office in Gonzales is a part of a nationwide franchised network, which now exist in 44 states and Canada.
The personalized screening system is designed to maximize the client’s piece of mind. Clients have the opportunity to interview any caregiver whom is referred to them. The criminal background screening service is the best in the industry. However, most emphasis is placed on the intangible traits in a caregiver which will mean so much in the day-to-day experience, such as a caring personality, previous experience in private duty homecare, desire to help people and often a family experience of caring for a loved one. Our caregivers are a diverse group with varying levels of experience. We will select the caregivers who have the experience necessary to best fulfill your loved one’s individual needs. Best of all, the client will have the opportunity to choose the caregiver after a personal interview, if so desired.
The Visiting Angels philosophy is that the client is in charge of everything. Unlike some nursing agencies, Visiting Angels will not dictate a schedule to the client. They believe it is their job to adjust to the client’s schedule and to see to it that the client remains comfortable in their own home. The needs of our clients are first priority.
