Senior Humor
Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you have plenty of room at each side.
With a 5-lb potato bag in each hand, extend your arms straight out from your sides and hold them there as long as you can. Try to reach a full minute, and then relax.
Each day you'll find that you can hold this position for just a bit longer. After a couple of weeks, move up to 10-lb potato bags.
Then try 50-lb potato bags and then eventually try to get to where you can lift a 100-lb potato bag in each hand and hold your arms straight for more than a full 

After you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each bag.

October 2015

Welcome, October! With average high temperatures in the mid to high 60s here in New Jersey, we agree with Nathaniel Hawthorne: "I cannot endure to waste anything so precious as autumnal sunshine by staying in the house. So I have spent almost all the daylight hours in the open air."

Enjoy one or more of the many NJ fall festivals with your friends and senior loved ones!

October New Jersey events to note:

clientsWe're Delighted to Hear from Families About Our Exceptional Care!

Another 5-Star Review:

"The caregiver from Visiting Angels provided companionship for my mother, and she helped her with personal care, too. The aide was warm and friendly, and cared about her job and my mom. Starting from the top of the organization down to the scheduling team, I'd say that they were very helpful and accommodating. If there was a scheduling problem, they always called us in advance to let us know so we could make other arrangements."

soarAppreciating Angels Who Soar

We are so proud of our wonderful, hard-working Angel employees who go beyond the call of duty. Below are reasons our Angels are so special...


Evelyn accepted an urgent assignment even though it was a longer distance from her home than we normally ask aides to drive; she understood our client's serious need for care.   


Anya eagerly stepped up to become "lead aide" by orienting other aides on an assignment for a long-term client whose care needs progressed from several hours a day to 24 hours per day.  


Thank You, Angels!

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.
