One of the most difficult decisions families have to make is choosing who takes care of their elderly loved ones when the time comes. For many families, nursing homes or assisted-living facilities are not the answer, so they turn to exploring options for in-home care.

Family caregiving is a big commitment and often takes an emotional and physical toll on the family. Visiting Angels offers respite care for family members who need a break. They also offer transition care if clients are being discharged home from a facility and need extra help to make their transition less stressful.
