" provided 24-hour in-home care for the past two months until my mother-in-law's passing two weeks ago. She was gentle and loving as" well as professional. She went above and beyond what was expected. I only hope that I will be as blessed.

"We talked about my mother in law's decline in mental ability which was so severe she couldn't function on her own, and how it interrupted her life in" general. Cooking, eating, and bathing became foreign to her. We discussed her unpredictable changes in mood and and personality. How she had withdrawn from all social contact, and her refusal to participate in family activities. How she was always misplacing things and losing her ability to retrace steps she had taken - just 15 minutes ago. We lost several cell phones and never recovered them. She demonstrated a complete lack of ability to deal with words in speaking - she could not express herself and relied on others to finish her sentences., She completely gave up writing notes or even signing her name, without help. She had always done crossword puzzles, and now had no interest in working on them. explained how they could help, and handle the Alzheimer's patient. We were 100% convinced that they could help us deal with her. And most of all they would treat her with respect and dignity. Thank You Health

Many elderly people forgo long-term care facilities for the comfort of home. Home health care aides and nurses have become commonplace, helping with activities of daily life.

Dad is a Tri-plegic - he had his shoulder operated on several months ago and is no longer able to lift his body weight. He is very limited on what he can do by himself and needs help getting in and out of bed, in and out of the shower, getting dressed and going to the bathroom.

They are kind, compassionate, and I would have no qualms recommending them, in fact I do highly. My mother was taken care of very well. As a novice, having no other experience w/hospice care, I would only hope that others would have the same experience as my mother (and myself as care taker did)

My sister initially called Visiting Angels and talked with an associate who quoted us a price of $17.50/hr. if it was over 9.75 hours ($19/hr if it was 4-9.75 hours. My sister clarified with the associate that the $17.50/hr covered 7 days a week including weekends. She was told that many of the employees wanted to work weekends so it was good for ...More them. There was an additional $2.50 trip cost. Since I live close to the Rangeline Road office I stopped in a day later, talked to a second person and received the same information so we set up an appointment for Visiting Angels to meet with our mother and family. Our family had discussed the charges and decided we could find the funds. When C. arrived on Friday she was delightful and we already had a comfort level as we personally knew a former employee of Visiting Angels. However, we were informed at that time that the rate was $17.50/hr + and additional $2.00/hr for weekends. I sent an email to C. the following Monday (10/5) indicating that we weren't starting off very well with the fee discrepancies but that we'd like to discuss it and possibly start the caregiving on that following Saturday (10/10). We never heard from her so my sister called her on Friday (10/9). She acted like she hadn't seen the email even though it was sent to the email on the card she had given to us and asked if we wanted to start caregiving on Saturday (10/10). My sister said that was too soon but we'd probably like to start on the 17th. C. said she'd get back to my sister. So far we have heard nothing! I truly hate writing this report but our loved ones are so important to us, it is a very difficult time for the family caregivers and we all look for a caring, trustworthy service. Therefor, I felt like I needed to share this information with other family. Visiting Angels may be fine but their communication skills are rated F so we never got a to see their services!

This provider ( Valentine) does an exceptional job. She is very dedicated, doesn't miss any time from work and is an extremely caring individual. My mother-in-law really likes this provider. is very patient and goes beyond the call of duty. She is always smiling and encouraging. She is very trustworthy ...More as well. We feel that when we leave the house, everything will be fine.

This is a horrible agency. If you would like to have people come into your home and ignore you when you speak to them, text message their friends and family while they are being paid to work and not bother to show up or call when they are scheduled then this is the agency for you.

Most of the aides that were sent out were completely inappropriate. ...More My daughters are 28 year old grown women who require lifting. More then one was older then I am! A few were so slightly built they were not able to assist with out putting themselves or my daughters in of getting hurt. It seemed like they sent out anyone they had available just to fill in the time schedule so they could bill for it. More often then not I did the work, they got paid!

I would just like to add that when you call the office to complain they react as if YOU are the problem and you have unreasonable expectations.
