Senior Humor 

A stingy old lawyer who had been diagnosed with a terminal illness was determined to prove wrong the old saying, "You can't take it with you."

After much thought and consideration, the old ambulance chaser finally figured out how to take at least some of his money with him when he died.

He instructed his wife to go to the bank and withdraw enough money to fill two pillowcases. He then directed her to take the bags of money to the attic and leave them directly above his bed.

His plan: When he passed away, he would reach out and grab the bags on his way up to heaven.

Several months after his funeral, the deceased lawyer's wife was up in the attic cleaning and came upon the two forgotten pillowcases stuffed with cash.

"Oh, that old fool!" she exclaimed. "I knew he should have had me put the money in the basement."

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

A Satisfied Client's Review:

"After nearly 20 years of caring for our son full-time, our family decided, with much concern, to find assistance in managing his care. We had held off for so long, worried that he would not receive the same level of concern and care from 'a stranger.' Then--we met Dee [our aide]. We can't believe the perfect fit! Her level of care, gentleness, precision, and kindness is exactly what we prayed for. She's practically family. We are so grateful and also pleased that Visiting Angels takes the time to make sure all their 'angels' are as wonderful as Dee."
--Krissa & Peter L., Medford, NJ

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.
