I am a past client of this provider
I was not impressed with this company. They charge so much money for such untrained caregivers (they are a franchise). I felt very unsafe leaving my mom in thier care.

They are good about sending people over, but the people they sent were not trained to handle Alzheimer's (my mother's disease) patients. Although the caretakers were kind and good at cleaning, 2 of the 3 that were sent were unable to even shower my mother. Also, they want to be pre-paid for the month, which seems a bit strange to me. When we chose to cancel the contract, it took over a month to get refunded. I suppose if you'll be using this organization for companionship or help with housework, it would be fine, but in my mother's case, it just didn't work out.
From Visiting Angels
Sometimes, nursing homes or retirement centers seem like the only options for care. Visiting Angels non-medical home care services allow people to maintain the independence of their daily routines and familiar surroundings. We believe that you and your family should have a choice about where and how to live, as well as who will provide your care. At Visiting Angels, we know it isn't easy to make the decision to invite a caregiver into your home to provide home care. That's why our personalized screening system is designed to maximize your peace of mind. You'll have the opportunity to interview any caregiver that we refer to you. We let you choose the caregiver you trust.
In addition to run a comprehensive background screening on each caregiver, we also emphasize intangible traits such as caring personality. When you try our service, you'll be pleasantly surprised to see that at Visiting Angels, characters matters!
With Visiting Angels, you are in charge of everything. Because we are a non-medical agency and not a nursing agency, we will not dictate to you what your schedule is to be (i.e. what time to wake up, when to bathe, meal schedules etc.). You are the boss.
