Select Your Caregiver® by Visiting Angels

Woman explaining how to select a caregiverWhen you hire in-home care for a loved one, it’s important that you have full confidence in your loved one’s caregiver or caregivers. That’s why your local Visiting Angels offers Select Your Caregiver. With Select Your Caregiver, care recipients and their families have a say in choosing their caregivers.

“At Visiting Angels, we know that any successful care plan comes down to finding the right caregiver for every client,” says our President and CEO Larry Meigs. “With Select Your Caregiver, we’ve made sure that you can find the right care provider for your loved one.”

If you’re thinking of hiring a caregiver for your loved one, Select Your Caregiver can play a big part in making your loved one’s care a success. Below, we’ve detailed how Select Your Caregiver works, the benefits it can offer, and how you can get started with care from your local Visiting Angels.

How Select Your Caregiver Works

Select Your Caregiver starts with your loved one’s care assessment. A care assessment is performed in your loved one’s home and is a chance for your local Visiting Angels care director to meet with you and your loved one. This assessment allows your local care director to learn about your loved one’s care needs and start planning your loved one’s care plan.

Based on this assessment, your local Visiting Angels will find a caregiver (or caregivers) whose skills, experience, and personality align with your loved one’s needs. If — for any reason — you feel that the caregiver isn’t quite the right fit for your loved one, just let us know. We’ll recommend a different caregiver for you.

Benefits of Choosing Your Caregiver

With our years of experience in the home care industry, the team at Visiting Angels knows how important the fit between each client and his or her care providers is. By allowing our clients to choose their caregivers, we help ensure the right fit is there from the outset. Through Select Your Caregiver, you’ll be able to:

  • Find a caregiver whose skills and past experience align with your loved one’s needs.
  • Choose a caregiver whose availability matches with your loved one’s schedule and routines.
  • Select a care provider whose approach to care fits with your loved one’s personality.
