Senior Humor 
The Anniversary Gift
Bob was in trouble. He forgot his wedding anniversary.  
His wife was really angry. She told him "Tomorrow morning, I expect to find a gift in the driveway that goes from 0 to 200 in 6 seconds AND IT BETTER BE THERE!"  
The next morning he got up early and left for work. When his wife woke up, she looked out the window and sure enough there was a box gift-wrapped in the middle of the driveway.  
Confused, the wife put on her robe and ran out to the driveway, brought the box back in the house.  
She opened it and found a brand new bathroom scale.  
Bob has been missing since Friday.

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

A Satisfied Client's 5 Star Review:

" Visiting Angels were very good; they were excellent. They helped my father with activities of daily living, and they helped him do his exercises from physical therapy and occupational therapy. It was terrific. Billing and scheduling were easy, too. The people that they sent were wonderful; they became part of the family."

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...
Joel J-L. has been one of our favorite Angels since 2014. He treats our clients with the utmost respect. He takes the time and energy to understand each client's personalities and tries to figure out ways that allow clients to thrive. For example, on his most recent assignment, he created an art studio in our client's home so the two of them could share their love of art together. Joel has also been described as patient, calm, and positive.

Iris M. is a very attentive and caring aide. She treats all clients with the same care and professionalism--whether on a long-term assignment or on a fill-in assignment for only a day. One client recently commented that she was an excellent caregiver and would love to have her as a fill-in again in the future.
We are grateful for you and thank you for your hard work, Joel and Iris!
