Balance and Strength May Reduce Fall Risk for Seniors

Maintaining balance and strength is increasingly vital to the overall well-being of aging adults, particularly for those with mobility concerns. Falls can have severe consequences for seniors, leading to debilitating injuries, loss of independence, and a decline in overall quality of life.

4 Ways to Improve an Indoor Environment for Seniors

If seniors spend most of their time inside their homes, it’s critical to enhance their indoor living environments. Every older adult will benefit from a clean and comfortable dwelling--free of unpleasant odors, excessive dust, leaks, mold, and other health hazards for seniors.

A 5-Star Review:

"Words cannot thank this company enough for helping me find a caregiver in such short notice to take care of my father with dementia after being released from the hospital. I was able to bring dad home but with great sadness he passed away within 3 days. His caregiver was Maria, an absolutely beautiful person, who took exceptional care of him right up to the very end. We love her for allowing him to pass with love, dignity, and peace. Thank you, Visiting Angels, for blessing us with an Angel."

Senior Humor


Three older ladies are sitting around a table playing bridge and bragging about their sons.

“My Freddie,” said Margaret, “everyone should be so lucky to have a son like my Freddie. Once a week he brings me a huge bouquet of flowers, he’s constantly taking me out to restaurants to eat, and if I so much as hint that I want something, the next morning it’s on my doorstep!”

“That’s very nice about your Freddie,” says Gertrude. “But with all due respect, when I think about the way my Sammy takes care of me, it just can’t compare. Every morning as soon as I wake up, he greets me with bacon and freshly brewed coffee. Every afternoon he comes over and cooks me a gourmet lunch, and every evening he takes me to his house for supper. He truly treats me like a queen.”

“WELL!” says Barbara, “I don’t want to make any of you feel bad or anything, but wait until you hear about my Harry. Twice a week he pays someone $200 an hour just so he can lie on their couch and talk to them. And who do you think he speaks about at THOSE prices?," asks Barbara with a big excited double chin smile. “I’ll tell you who he speaks about! ALL HE SPEAKS ABOUT IS ME!”
