LOSING MY MIND 
 
"Oh my goodness," sighed Joe's wife one morning, "I'm convinced my mind is almost completely gone!"

Her husband looked up from the newspaper and commented, "I'm not surprised...You've been giving me a piece of it every day for thirty years!"

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

A Review from a Client's Daughter:

"What I liked about Visiting Angels was that they're very communicative. They always tell you what's going on.
   The caregivers were very caring, patient and kind. My mom's needs were challenging and she's hard to understand because of her medical condition, but they were very good in dealing with her.
   Their scheduling process was easy. You always know who will come. If there was a change for some reason, they let you know beforehand who will show up.
   Their billing system was simple. I know other places were very cumbersome."
--Maria, Hainesport, NJ

soarAngels Who Soar: Celebrating Our Hardworking Employees    

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

For the past few months, Donna R. has taken on extra overnight shifts with a client. She is replacing one of our other aides who had to leave the country suddenly due to a family emergency.

Movita S. has just celebrated her 5-year anniversary with Visiting Angels. In those 5 years, Movita has always been willing to adapt to client schedule changes to assist the clients. She has shown true dedication and loyalty to Visiting Angels through the years.

Despite a very hectic schedule, Lillian G. manages to balance it all very well and is always very helpful in doing the best she can to accept last minute fill-in assignments.

COMMUNITY OUTREACH   
Each month, Rudy Tervooren (Managing Director and Co-Owner) and Matt Govan (Business Development Executive) travel throughout the community visiting referral sources and attending client meetings.  
   Rudy and Matt frequently give presentations at senior centers, churches, and in offices throughout Mercer and Burlington counties in New Jersey.
   Rudy and Matt are passionate to share how our State-certified home care employees can help seniors with all their daily living needs, making it possible for them to continue living at home safely and less expensively than in a facility.

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.
