Engaging Activities for Seniors

Engaging in activities can play a vital role in enhancing seniors' physical and mental well-being while deterring potential health challenges. An active and fulfilling lifestyle filled with fun and engaging activities can make all the difference!


Foot Problems and Fall Risks

When you think about your physical condition, you may not focus on the health of your feet. After a lifetime of standing, walking, and running, it’s no surprise many seniors develop foot disorders, which may lead to fall risks.

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

A 5-Star Review:

"One month after my mother's passing, I wanted to send a letter of thanks to the Visiting Angels' staff. My mother received care for over a year. Michelle was wonderful with scheduling. Our aide, Rose A., was a professional 'daughter' to my mother. She was able to motivate her on her 'good days' and comfort her on her less productive days. Your agency's services were exactly what we needed as a family. Thank you for everything that you do!

—Sharon N, West Windsor, NJ

Celebrating Our Hardworking Employees

We are so proud of our wonderful, hard-working employees who go beyond the call of duty. Below is why our Angels are so special...

Shirley P: Shirley has been with Visiting Angels since February 2020, and has been a professional caregiver for many years. Her vast experience, professional knowledge, and critical thinking have been invaluable to our home care clients in South Jersey. Shirley dutifully clocks in/out, submits required paperwork, and regularly communicates with the office. Her calm, kind demeanor puts our clients and their families at ease.

Ophelia C: Ophelia was one of our first live-in caregivers, having started with Visiting Angels in June 2008. She was with the same client for 10 years, which is a testament to her stellar care, kind nature, and diligence. Ophelia has a sparkling personality and creates deep bonds with our clients. We appreciate Ophelia's loyalty and professionalism to our clients and to our company through the years.

We appreciate and thank you, Shirley and Ophelia!

Senior Humor


My wife and I went out for a leisurely drive to see the autumn leaves, when we noticed that one of the tires seemed to be getting low.

We drove into a gas station with an air pump.

She was a bit taken aback when I asked her for some change and asked, "Why in the world did they start charging for AIR?!"

I looked at her and winked, "Inflation."
