At the beginning of my shift I placed a stethoscope on an elderly and slightly deaf female patient's anterior chest wall.

"Big breaths," I instructed. "Yes, they used to be," she remorsefully replied.

Sabi pill container Sabi Pill Containers         

Sabi has taken pill containers from ugly to stylish. No longer does your daily ritual of taking supplements or medicine need to be dispensed from a drab product. They've designed a whole line of products from pill splitters to pill containers with an attached water bottle. Their "Folio" model is shown--it looks like a designer notepad, but reveals a week's worth of pills inside. See the complete line at www.sabi.com.    

 

Drawstring tool Drawstring Tool       

We've all had trouble with drawstrings slipping to the back of our sweatpants or PJs. With this nifty tool, you'll no longer have to use safety pins to work the drawstring back through the hole. It also has other uses such as pulling clogs from drains and grabbing wires/jewelry from hard-to-reach places. Visit www.creativecommodities.com

AboutOurCareAbout Our Care

Visiting Angels is a New Jersey-licensed, non-medical home care company committed to going well beyond the "industry standard" to provide an exceptional level of security, comfort and peace of mind to our clients and their loved ones. Our "Angels", all certified home health professionals, are ready to provide compassionate and dependable assistance with the activities of everyday living to seniors, the disabled, those recovering from surgery and to those who are simply frail. Our services include such simple tasks as light housekeeping, meal preparation, errands and shopping to more personal tasks such as hygiene assistance, bathing, dressing and grooming.
 
Visiting Angels' in-home care helps make it possible for seniors and other adults to continue to live at home and maintain the independence of their daily routines and familiar surroundings, safely. We truly understand how challenging and alien the entire home care selection process can be...and we are experienced in working with families; with loved ones "resistant" to receiving care; and with third-parties payors (such as insurance companies and the US Dept. of Veterans Affairs) to help insure that the best interests of the family and their loved ones are met.

Visiting Angels' services help families spend more mutually-rewarding and meaningful time with their loved ones and also helps provide comfort and peace of mind to those who face the challenge of long-distance caregiving.
