We can help with shopping trips and other errands, and loved ones can either stay at home or go along for the ride.

Medication Reminders

Although caregivers are not permitted to administer medicines, they can help clients take them as prescribed. Caregivers can help with the opening of containers, reading of labels, and offering of dosage reminders.

At Visiting Angels, our caregivers work with seniors to help them remain at home for as long as they possibly can. When families choose us to look after their loved ones, they find it easier to balance the needs of an aging senior.
