Learn How To Get Started with Home Care

As you search for care services one question repeats in your head, “How do I get started?” The answer to that question is very simple, especially when choosing Visiting Angels as your preferred home care agency. In order to help you transition into our care, we offer a free consultation. You can either choose to conduct the consultation at your home, or at the Visiting Angels offices. During this consultation, a Visiting Angels care coordinator will describe the foundations of Visiting Angels care. Additionally, we welcome you to ask any questions that you may have. We want to make sure that you are fully informed about your options.

We want to make sure that you have peace of mind when you’re choosing Visiting Angels. During the initial care meeting, we want to inform you about all of what our home care agency has to offer you. Also, we want to learn more about you and your loved one in order to create a personalized care plan that’s going to fit you as well as possible. We are passionate about giving our clients quality care. The following are common topics that are discussed during the initial care meeting:
