Select Your Caregiver® by Visiting Angels

Last updated on March 30, 2022

When you choose professional in-home care services for a loved one, you should have complete confidence in the assigned home caregiver. In fact, confidence is key to your peace of mind and your loved one’s comfort.

Visiting Angels believes any successful home care plan relies on finding the right caregiver for every individual. Through its “Select Your Caregiver program,” Visiting Angels provides a personalized recommendation to successfully match your loved one with the right caregiver for their needs and preferences.

How Does “Select Your Caregiver” Work?

After performing an initial consultation and a free home care assessment at your loved one’s residence, a care coordinator will work with you to develop a comprehensive care plan. The plan will outline specific personal care services and requested days/times to ensure everyone is on the same page.

During this process, the care coordinator will get to know your loved one by asking questions about their life, family, hobbies, preferences, and health conditions. The care coordinator will use this information to recommend a caregiver whose skills, experience, personality, and availability align with your loved one’s needs and expectations.

If — for any reason, at any time — you feel the caregiver isn’t the right match, the care coordinator will recommend a different home care aide.

What Are the Benefits of Select Your Caregiver?

With our extensive expertise in home care, the entire team at Visiting Angels knows how important the caregiver-client relationship is to a successful experience. We get to know our clients personally, which gives us the best chance of recommending a caregiver who is a perfect fit.

A Visiting Angels’ care coordinator will recommend a caregiver who has:

  • Availability to match with preferred schedules and routines
  • An approach to care that fits with different personalities
  • Skills and experience that align with specific requests
  • Experience caring for individuals with health conditions, such as dementia or Parkinson’s disease
  • Similar interests and hobbies that foster camaraderie and companionship
  • An understanding of special needs, health issues, and preferences
