We’re Delighted to Hear from Families About Our Exceptional Care!

A 5-Star Review:
"We have been using Visiting Angels for about four years for our mother. She needs in-home care during the day because of some physical issues. Visiting Angels was very helpful and understanding when trying to place the best 'angel' with our mother. After a few trials, we have been very blessed with the perfect 'angel' for our mother. She is a wonderful person and very caring. The relationship that she has with our mother is very special and she is considered a dear part of our family. We couldn’t have asked for a better person to care for our mother. Visiting Angels has been a blessing for us. We are very grateful for the care and concern they have for our mother’s needs."

Senior Humor


I loved the dress that I bought at a flea market.

It fit perfectly, and the skirt was a swirl of intricate pleats.

I wore it confidently to an evening party and glowed when a woman exclaimed, “Oh, how stunning!”

Yes, I was grinning from ear to ear, until she added cheerfully, “Hang on to it, honey. Pleats will come back someday.”
