About Visiting Angels of Tacoma and Olympia
When it comes to your care there are so many choices"”nursing homes, assisted living facilities, home health agencies (nursing agencies), home care agencies and more. However, only you can choose what's right for you.
At VISITING ANGELS, we know that it isn't easy to make the decision to invite a caregiver into your home to provide homecare for loved ones who can no longer be safely left alone.
We are family owned and operated, and we are confident you will enjoy working with us!
Why Choose a "Best of Home Care" Agency?
What does it mean to win a "Best of Home Care" award? Simply put, a "Best of Home Care" agency has proven that it cares about quality, in both its client and employee interactions. Knowing that other clients are satisfied gives you a great indicator that you will be satisfied too.
How does the Caregiver Quality Assurance work?
As members of the Caregiver Quality Assurance program, we have access to the most advanced psychological techniques to assure that the caregivers we send into a client's home are trustworthy, dependable, and have the skills needed to provide top quality care. Our caregivers are drug tested and background checked as well.
Select Your Caregiver!
You'll have the opportunity to interview and select any caregiver who we refer to you. You'll only accept a caregiver that you feel totally comfortable with. When you meet our caregivers, you're going to be pleasantly surprised to see that at VISITING ANGELS, character matters!
Personalized Background Screening
Our personalized caregiver background screening system is designed to maximize your peace of mind. However, we place most emphasis on the intangible traits in a caregiver which will mean so much in your day to day experience in working with them. These traits include: a caring loving personality, a strong desire to help people and a family experience of caring for a loved one.
We Recruit Experience!
Common traits of our caregivers include prior experience in home care giving, experience with volunteer organizations and/or affiliations with religious organizations. Most importantly, our caregivers provide references to us from sources we can trust (other agencies, nursing homes, religious organizations, charities, hospices, assisted living communities etc.). It is most important to us to put your needs first! We will only refer a caregiver to you who has the necessary experience to fulfill your individual needs.
Continuity of Care
You are in charge of everything. Because we strive to maintain "continuity of care" (we keep the same caregiver you select with you as long as possible), VISITING ANGELS will not dictate to you what your schedule is to be (i.e. what time to get up, when to bathe, meal schedules etc.), as do some agencies that continually send new, unfamiliar staff. We also do not require you to adjust your schedule to accommodate the needs of our staff. You are the boss. It is our job to adjust to your schedule and to see to it that you remain comfortable in your own home.
You Can Afford the Best
Our philosophy of home care is to never compromise on providing high quality services to your family. Our system allows you to afford a top quality caregiver. At VISITING ANGELS, we keep our overhead low to avoid passing high costs to you. In addition, we believe our caregivers should be well paid and treated with respect. For this reason, we can attract and maintain the best quality caregivers available.
