Caregiver (Former Employee) – Peoria, AZ – October 13, 2018
A typical day at Visiting Angels was nice and calm. I assist seniors at their home with cooking, showers, drive to doctor appointments. I loved working with the seniors because they were nice and interesting. They would tell me about their life growing up in their hometown. Showed pictures of their family and talked about their life. I found it interesting working for the seniors

I enjoyed working for this company. I grew attached to my clients whom I worked with during my time at this job. I was able to work as much or as little as I wanted. I would and I have recommended this company to my family and friends.
Flexiable work hours
Sometimes it could be long dry spells between clients.
Caregiver (Former Employee) – Henderson, NV – October 12, 2018
Visiting Angels is a wonderful company. They provided gloves, which is a blessing. I have no complaint, other than the low pay. I take this profession very seriously. Maintaining ones dignity and meeting their personal needs IS a skill. I believe great caregivers should be compensated, appropriately.
They have always given me the hours I needed and a flexible schedule.
Home Health Aide (HHA) (Former Employee) – Morehead, KY – October 12, 2018
I only worked with one family and that only ended when the patient was transferred to a nursing home. I loved how close I was able to get with the family and there was a strong bond between the clients and I.
Family environment, treated as family
Job security depending on the patients you work with

I love this company they are extremely flexible and always keep you in mind when they recieve new clients so they can give you the best stable schedule. I love the ladies in the office! The fact that you meet the most incredible clients is the best because you build such an amazing bond with them.

Competive, somewhat stressful but flexible hours and variety of tasks
Personal Care Aide (Former Employee) – Boerne, TX – September 29, 2018
A typical day is a day like being at home with a family member both stressful and joyful. I learned to patient and how to interact with the ederly also how to distribute medications and multitask. Management is at a distance and mainly discussions are over the phone or by text. The hardest part of the job is be aware of dangerous situations and possible death. The most enjoyable part of the day is watching shows with the clients, cooking for them and having some conversation and sometimes running errands.

Visiting Angels offers lots of new challenges, lots of variety of people to enjoy and dollar bonuses if you take or fill-in for a job they are having trouble to fill, or if they need to fill this job quickly. They are very pleasant to work with.
Certified Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Corpus Christi, TX – September 26, 2018
I loved working with the patients, but there always seemed to be a high turnover in the office staff. The job entailed changing patients diapers because they couldn’t do it themselves. Cleaning the patients daily as well as preparing all of their meals. And making sure they were always taking their medications.
Being able to run errands with the patients and getting them out of the house.
Some patients could become violent with you in just a blink of an eye.
Caregiver (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – September 25, 2018
Visiting Angels mostly provides respite coverage for family caregivers which means lots of short shifts are available, and you could work with a bunch of different families. It's probably half personal care and half alzheimers supervision. I had assignments that I hated and some that I loved. The flexibility is unmatched. The pay is not a living wage
caregiver (Former Employee) – Portland, OR 97225 – September 25, 2018
If you've ever worked in a CNA type job I promise this is much easier but still reminiscent. The thing I appreciated that there was always hours for me even if my regular clients canceled. They always need workers and they always have other clients for you to work with if you are not compatible with the ones you're assigned to and they always try to find clients in your area so you don't have to travel too far. Once you've got an established schedule it's fairly regular. They also have shifts ranging from 4-12 hours. The management is good and kind and always understanding.
