The first of its kind in Southeastern Florida, Visiting Angels University at Palm Beach Gardens will serve as a resource center and educational facility and will also host support groups and serve as a meeting space for local non-profit and community organizations.

As a caregiver resource center, Visiting Angels University provides caregivers a chance to continue their education and improve their skills and knowledge on topics as essential and varied as customer service, infection control, privacy and confidentiality and palliative care.

While this educational component applies more to formal caregivers, Visiting Angels wants to ensure that the needs of informal caregivers are met and that their voices are heard as well.

40% to 70% of family caregivers have clinically significant symptoms of depression and of these caregivers, approximately a quarter to half of them meet the diagnostic criteria for major depression.

Visiting Angels University will start hosting support groups in Spring 2024 and plans on creating groups for caregivers, clients and families. In addition to creating safe spaces where people can experience reduced stress by talking and embracing the encouragement, support and advice of others, Visiting Angels University will also create dedicated support groups for Parkinson's Disease, Family Caregiving Dynamics, Bereavement and Alzheimer's and Dementia.

In addition to the support groups, Visiting Angels University is dedicated to being a resource for the entire community and not just staff, clients and their families. They will be hosting a series of public seminars on the topics of health, aging and care.

With the creation of Visiting Angels University, Visiting Angels is furthering their mission and cementing their legacy of providing non-medical home care and restoring hope through the assistance of healing the emotional, spiritual and physical well-being of the South Florida families they serve.
