Visiting Angels of Atlantic County has made a two-year pledge to Jewish Family Service of Atlantic and Cape May Counties (JFS).

As an agency-building donor, the funds will enable seniors in the community to continue to benefit from programs and access services for their individual needs.

“At JFS, we are delighted to welcome Visiting Angels as a donor agency. Their generous funding will support a range of programs and services for seniors in the area,” said Andrea Steinberg, CEO of JFS. “Their health care business is committed to helping adults by providing comprehensive home care and we are proud to partner to help our local village members.”

Visiting Angels has supported and participated in JFS programs including The Lynn Kramer Village by the Shore, Card Party and Turkey Drive for over 13 years.

The company sponsors fundraising events, participates in programs to share knowledge about home care options, and contributes to the Food Pantry to help residents in need.

For the past 17 years, Visiting Angels owners and sisters, Patty Laychock, RRT, and Kathy Callahan, RN, BSN, have worked diligently to provide safe, quality home care services to seniors and people disabilities in the Atlantic County area.

Each client receives a personalized care plan created by one of their registered nurses, based on the client’s individual needs.

Dedicated caregivers at Visiting Angels help to safely care for adults in the comfort of their own homes.

Recently, Visiting Angels received the distinguished Best of Home Care – Top 100 Leader in Experience Award 2022 from Home Care Pulse, the leading experience management company for home care.

This honor is the highest honor bestowed by Home Care Pulse and is only awarded to 100 home care companies in North America.

Additionally, Visiting Angels received Best of Home Care Employer of Choice and Provider of Choice 2022 awards.

“We are very proud of all our staff, from the office to the field. The work they do every day is something we can be extremely proud of. The kindness, compassion and dedication of our staff to our community is commendable to say the least,” said Visiting Angels owners Patty Laychock and Kathy Callahan.
