Helpful Questions

I’m Marcy Silver, Operations Coordinator of the award-winning home care agency Visiting Angels of Pikesville. Our team of caregivers, otherwise known as Angel companions, and care coordinators help local families find home care that fits their unique lifestyle.   

Are you considering hiring a home care agency? Here are some questions that you may want to ask before you welcome them into your humble abode:

  1. “How do you recruit caregivers? What are your hiring requirements?”
    For example, Visiting Angels of Pikesville only hires Certified Assistants who already have experience caregiving. Most of the time, our potential hires have a strong employment history in caring for seniors. Many of the caregivers we hire are referred by our current caregivers. As a result, we receive calls from caregivers who would like to become an Angel companion daily.
  2.  “Is your agency bonded, insured, and licensed?”
    A trusted home care agency will have all three. Visiting Angels of Pikesville, for example, meets all bonding, insurance and licensing requirements.
  3.  “If I am not satisfied with a caregiver, can they be replaced without cause?''
    The basis of personal care services is maintaining a strong connection between caregiver and client. A professional home care agency like Visiting Angels of Pikesville will work with you to find you a caregiver that fits your family for the long haul.
  4.  “Can we meet the caregiver before they begin working?”
    Inviting a stranger into your home can be uncomfortable at first. At Visiting Angels of Pikesville, we ensure that you can meet and approve a proposed caregiver before they step into your home.
