Elderly Home Care from Visiting Angels of Kitsap County

How We View Social Care

At Visiting Angels of Kitsap County, we incorporate a holistic mindset throughout all aspects of our elderly home care. This means that we cater to our client’s many needs equally, whether socially, physically, mentally, or spiritually.

Through these skills, we strive for our seniors to stay more connected with their beloved communities and enhance the quality of their lives.
