I've been using Visiting Angels for several years now to provide companionship and care for my wife (who has dementia) while I am at work. (Due to COVID, I am currently working from home, but I still have them com so I am free to work). The caregivers are a great help to my wife and to me as well. Because I don't have to ten to my wife and try to get work done at the same time, I start the evening fresh rather than stressed out already. Visiting Angels is a Godsend!

We did have to try a few different caregivers and they did not match with our loved one and the needs we were looking for. The last caregiver we got is excellent and I am glad we found her.

They seem do a really great job. I haven't had any issues with them. No problem with the care they're providing at all. I spoke with them about having the caregiver take my family member on an errand, and they said that wasn't allowed. They said she could accompany him but could not transport him. That would be the only negative I've encountered so far.
