Visiting Angels Awarded "Best of Homecare" 7 years in a row!!!
It’s more than just what we do; it’s how we do it!
We begin by meeting with you in your home and reviewing your needs through discussions with you and involved family members; when necessary we consult with your physician(s), social workers, hospitals, home health, hospice or nursing home staff. This meeting typically lasts about an hour and the focus is not only to gather details about your health and care needs....but also to get to know you a bit better; your likes, dislikes and preferences.
Based on this initial meeting, we review our caregiving staff and select the Angel who not only has the skills and experiences that would best fit your needs....we also look for one who would be a good personal fit.
What's unique about Visiting Angels (compared to others), is that you would then have the option of having a second meeting to personally introduce you to your Angel caregiver.
This second meeting is more of an informal, get-to-know-you meeting. You can chat with and ask the caregiver any questions you may have. The hope is that this will help you to decide if this Angel is the right one for you, before beginning services. If they are, then they can start services when you are ready for them to begin. If you would prefer to meet a different Angel instead, we will happily arrange for another meeting with a different caregiver.
This also serves our caregivers in a similar way. We think everyone deserves to feel familiar and comfortable with the arrangements, before beginning services.
In addition to selecting your Angel caregiver, an individualized Service Plan is set up for you, to manage your daily needs and assist you in all of your activities of daily living.
Once services begin, a member of our office team will stay in touch through telephone check-in and supervisory home visits to monitor the services we're providing and to ensure your satisfaction.
Here are some examples of the activities of daily living services that we provide:
Toileting, Incontinence Care
Meal Planning & Preparation
Mobility Standby Assistance
Home Helper Assistance
Laundry & Ironing
Errands, Shopping, Transportation
Walks & Exercise
Respite for Family Caregivers
If there's a service that you don't see listed here, give us a call and ask about it. Chances are we can help with it or assist you in finding a service provider who can.
