I have had many clients ask how we excelled so quickly after introducing Visiting Angels in our hometown of Lynchburg. I believe the way we treat our employees makes all the difference. It is not my job as the Director to provide the best in home care, that is the job of our in home staff and Nursing Director. We empower our caregivers to bring up concerns to our office staff without worrying about being dismissed or treated like they are bothering the office staff. We take time to listen to their concerns and make sure we address any small issues before they become larger problems.
Our pro-active approach to ensure our caregivers feel valued, appreciated and empowered leads to them being fully invested in their client’s care and reporting any change that may occur in their client's condition quickly and efficiently.
While the national turnover rate for caregivers working in home care in the United States is around 87%, Visiting Angels of Lynchburg turnover rate for 2019 was under 11% on average.
