Blood Pressure

A doctor remarked on his patient's ruddy complexion.

"I know," the patient said. "It's high blood pressure; it's from my family."

"From your mother's side, or your father's side?" questioned the doctor.

"Neither. It's from my wife's side," the patient said.

"What?" the doctor said. "That can't be. You can't get high blood pressure from your wife's family."

"Oh yeah?" the patient responded. "You should meet them sometime!"

greenUnderstanding "Veterans Culture" When Caring for an Aging Veteran 

Veterans possess a level of love and loyalty that stems from their service time. There's a veteran's culture, of sorts, which needs to be understood to gain the trust and respect of a veteran. For a veteran needing assistance at home, it can be a hard time in their life to realize that they no longer possess the level of autonomy they've always had. They need help, but many proudly push back against that reality. These tips can help..

Blood Pressure Monitor
Doctor visits can create anxiety that may temporarily affect your blood pressure, giving a distorted reading. A home blood pressure monitor allows you to frequently and accurately check your blood pressure while you are in a non-stressful environment. Visit www.Amazon.com for more information.

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

A Satisfied Client's 5-Star Review:

"Upon qualifying for the VA's [Dept. of Veterans Affairs] home care, I was grateful but my expectations were very low. I thought I would be assigned an impersonal aide who wouldn't be interested in me or in my specific needs. To my great surprise, though, I was matched with a caregiver who not only honors my requests and decisions every time, but who also made my transition to receiving outside help so easy. Now, my Angel is both my home health aide and my good companion. Thank you so much, Visiting Angels!"

angelsAngels Who Soar: Celebrating Our Hardworking Employees    

We are so proud of our wonderful, hard-working employees who go beyond the call of duty. Below is why our Angels are so special...
Kwame O. has been a reliable and dependable employee caregiver with Visiting Angels since 2012. Kwame is one of those unique people who goes about his day smiling and without complaint, not even realizing what a positive impact he has on our clients' lives. He is in tune with clients' needs and is well beloved by both clients and office staff alike.

Yan D. has been with Visiting Angels since March 2017. During this time, she has been an attentive, prompt, and helpful CHHA who rarely calls out. Recently, a client's daughter commented that Yan has gone above and beyond to ensure her mom is happy everyday, and that Yan makes sure her mom has everything she needs before leaving at the end of the day.
We are grateful for you and thank you for your hard work, Kwame and Yan!
