In Her Dreams

A woman was taking an afternoon nap.

When she woke up, she told her husband, "I just dreamed that you gave me a pearl necklace. What do you think it means?"

"You'll know tonight," he said.

That evening, the man came home with a small package and gave it to his wife.

Delighted, she opened it to find a book entitled The Meaning of Dreams.

heatIs Someone You Love In Danger?

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

A Satisfied Client's Review:

"I would like to share our experience with Marie B, our Visiting Angels' home health aide. Marie has been working with us for some time now providing home health care services to our mom. Marie is extremely punctual, has a joyful spirit and a positive demeanor with an attentive approach in her one-on-one dealings with our mom. Marie is organized and thorough in performing tasks and is willing to help out in any way she can.
    In addition to assisting our mother with bathing, transitioning around the house, helping her get dressed each morning, fixing her breakfast and lunch, she has also helped with wash, cleaning the house including bathrooms, made beds and taking our mom outside for supervised walks. Marie is a consummate home health aide one who is conscientious, taking pride in all that she does.
    Our mom appears to be regaining strength and is now able to do more on her own. We will miss Marie and wanted you to know she has been an angel to work with and a blessing to our mom and family.
    We would recommend Marie to others as her work integrity and kind persona make her the valuable home health aide any organization would be grateful to have. Visiting Angels' staff has been wonderful and I continue to recommend Visiting Angels' services to others."
--Maria M and Family, Ewing, NJ

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...

Michelle D. has been one of our loyal employees since November 2011. Recently, a client's family member (who had experienced problems with other home care agencies in the past) remarked that Michelle is "fabulous and amazing," takes good care of her mother, and is always smiling. We greatly value Michelle's good nature and helpfulness.

Mohamed M., also a long-time Angel (since December of 2012), recently accepted an assignment with a client which was extremely challenging and difficult to staff. His dedication and compassion toward this client is unsurpassed. We respect Mohamed's professionalism and caring personality.  

Thank you, Michelle and Mohamed! We appreciate your hard work and diligent care of our clients.

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.
