About Visiting Angels

elder care

I love what I do! Those are the words I begin every family meeting with when I introduce myself and the unique non-medical home care services and philosophy of Visiting Angels.

Non-medical home care is a present and growing need that’s never going away. Everyday a family faces the difficult choice of whether to place their loved one into a nursing home or assisted living facility. The family has reached a point where they can no longer provide the proper care needed to keep a parent, grandparent or adult sibling at home. The adult offspring have basically been the caregivers. It takes a tremendous toll on them and their life has somewhat been put on hold.

There is an alternative however and it’s called non-medical home care by qualified and experienced caregivers. I feel caregivers were born with a passion and desire to care for the elderly and establish a relationship that gradually makes them a part of the family. The term non-medical home care simply means our caregivers do not provide any medical assistance to our clients like administering any medications, injections or taking blood samples. We do have a licensed RN on staff and our nurse will come out and perform an evaluation on each case once it begins.

The services our caregivers do provide include up to 24 hour care, either on an hourly or live in basis, meal preparation, personal hygiene assistance, respite care, light housekeeping, errands like transportation to the grocery store or beauty parlor, accompanying the client to doctor’s visits or pharmacy or maybe just a drive for some fresh air. And of course, our caregivers always provide rewarding companionship. I pride my Visiting Angels agency on our strict interview and screening process done on all of our caregivers. Our caregivers go through a 3 tier process interview that includes an intensive background check and an employment and personal reference check that’s noted on their application and thoroughly verified.

Our caregivers are the life blood of our agency and that’s why we put our caregivers first and make them feel appreciated. They become part of our Visiting Angel’s family. With that philosophy, the family we then care for benefit’s the greatest.

I feel blessed every day that I am able to make a difference in the life of a family who before being introduced to Visiting Angels and our wonderful caregivers, began to lose faith in the phrase “home is where the heart is.” Joseph Byrne, Director
