THE OLD-TIMERS' RIGHT

A group of seniors were sitting around talking about their ailments:

"My arms are so weak I can barely hold a cup of coffee," said one.

"Yes, I know. My cataracts are so bad I can't even see my coffee," replied another.

"I can't turn my head because of the arthritis in my neck," said a third, to which several nodded in agreement.

"My blood pressure pills make me dizzy," another went on.

"I guess that's the price we pay for getting old," winced an old man as he shook his head.

Then there was a short moment of silence.

"Well, it's not that bad," said one woman cheerfully. "Thank goodness we can all still drive!"

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

Praise for our Angel, Thaera:

"On behalf of my sister and brothers, I would like you to know how much the care and diligence of Thaera [our Visiting Angels' aide] meant to our mother in her last months. Besides providing excellent home health care assistance, Thaera was a patient, kind companion to [my mother]. Her care allowed Mom to remain in her own home-her very strongest desire. We all met, liked, and had complete confidence in Thaera to act in Mom's best interests. Her skills and compassion were evident in every encounter."
--Cynthia, Browns Mills, NJ

COMMUNITY OUTREACH 
Each month, Rudy Tervooren (Co-Owner and Executive Director) travels throughout the community visiting referral sources and attending client meetings. 
   Rudy frequently gives presentations at senior centers, churches, and in offices throughout Mercer and Burlington counties in New Jersey.
   We're 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.
    If you would like to schedule an elder care presentation, please call 609-883-8188 or email info@seniorcare.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.
