Visiting Angels Awarded "Best of Homecare"  7 years in a row!!!

About Us

Our humble beginnings

 

Mark Wang, an Oregonian since 1996, opened the Visiting Angels® of Willamette Valley Homecare Agency located here in Albany in 2004 to serve seniors in the beautiful mid-Willamette Valley area. With aging parents of his own, Mark wanted to provide an in-home service that would give families a different option to consider for their loved ones, instead moving from their family home.

 

“There’s no place like home!” is a familiar and heartwarming sentiment. Home is where many people prefer to live; it often holds fond memories of family, neighbors, friends and a sense of belonging. And remaining in the home is where Visiting Angels can be of service for your loved one.

 

The Visiting Angels® of Willamette Valley office is part of a nationwide franchised network of Visiting Angels® offices with multiple locations across North America and internationally. Each office is independently owned and operated.

 

Our Mission

 

Visiting Angels is dedicated to providing seniors with the highest quality of care, treating each individual with respect and compassion, enabling our care recipients to remain safe and independent in their own homes

 

Our Values

 

• To provide exceptional services with honesty, integrity, dedication and professionalism.

• To be fair, understanding, compassionate and respectful of all.
