expanded its home care services throughout sixteen additional counties in eastern
North Carolina. Specializing in companion and personal elder care, Visiting
Angels provides area elders the option to safely remain within his or her
personal residence and experience what the program calls, "aging in
"We understand the reality of the aging population, not only here
in eastern North Carolina, but nationwide,"
the Visiting Angels franchise for the eastern North Carolina region. "Our goal is to allow seniors, through
our assistance, to be able to remain in their own home or that of a family
member. Nursing home care can be an unwelcome alternative for families. With our services, independence continues to
be a possibility and one that is fashioned specifically for the individual and
his or her family."
With the expansion of the service area of Visiting Angels into eastern
North Carolina, individuals and family members now can receive the Visiting
Angels' elder care assistance in Beaufort, Bertie, Carteret, Chowan, Craven,
Edgecombe, Greene, Hyde, Jones, Lenoir, Martin, Nash, Pamlico, Pitt,
Washington, Wayne and Wilson Counties.
"Our staff, which is thoroughly screened, bonded, and insured, are
available to provide care that can range from a few hours a week up to 24-hour
live-in care," said Siessel. "For those who are caring for a family
member, we also can offer a scheduled respite from caregiving."
Through Visiting Angels, services can include grooming and bathing
assistance, personal hygiene care, medication and fluid reminders, meal
preparation, light housekeeping, assistance with mobility, errands and
companionship. Individuals in assisted
living facilities that require extra help to meet independence requirements
also are assisted through the Visiting Angels organization. Costs for Visiting
Angels services compare favorably to assisted living facilities and nursing
homes with the added benefit that loved ones can maintain independence or
remain in their own home.
Visiting Angels is a nationwide service that incorporates a network of
experts and information that is available through the company's website and local
speaking engagements provided by the regional franchisees. "Our concern for the elder citizens of (Pitt) county and eastern North
Carolina extends to educating family members and the community on elder issues
from home safety, to scam prevention, to Alzheimer's issues," said
Siessel. Visiting Angels provides talks to educational, municipal, medical, church
or professional groups within the seventeen county region on timely aging and
other related topics.
