Visiting Angels Living Assistance Services provides home services, including personal hygiene assistance, companionship, housekeeping help, meal preparation and assistance with errands. Services are available on either a temporary and long-term basis, and 24-hour assistance, holiday care and weekend care are offered. Respite care is also available for family caregivers.
Visiting Angels care providers meet with family members, physicians, social workers and other involved professionals to determine the best care plan for each elder. The organization has been around 1998 and has agencies located throughout the United States. Caregivers looking to obtain home care services for elderly individuals can go to the Visiting Angels website to search by ZIP code or state for a nearby office. There are no Visiting Angels locations in the state of Florida, as of 2015.
The organization strives to make it possible for elderly individuals to remain living at home whenever possible. The available home care services make it more manageable for caregivers to keep their loved ones out of assisted-living facilities and nursing homes. One way Visiting Angels makes it easy for caregivers to keep their loved ones at home is by answering all after-hours phone calls within 15 minutes. Any calls that go to voicemail during evening or weekend hours receive a prompt callback from a trained professional.
