Why Elderly Care by Visiting Angels
At Visiting Angels, we realize it is never easy bringing someone into your home to provide elderly care services. That’s why we strive to make staying at home a positive experience. We do this by allowing you to select your caregiver from a group of experienced elderly care providers, allowing you to maintain your schedule and providing you or your loved one with personalized elderly care services.
You Are In Charge – We’re On “Your” Schedule
With Visiting Angels, you’re in charge of everything. Your Visiting Angels elderly care provider will not dictate to you what your schedule is to be (i.e. what time to get up, when to bathe, meal schedules, etc.). It is our job to adjust to your schedule and to see to it that you remain comfortable in your home. Visiting Angels – Senior Home Care at its Best!
Bonded, licensed and insured
Your locally owned and operated Visiting Angels office is licensed by the state of Nevada and is insured and bonded. This can give you the peace of mind that a trustworthy elderly care provider will be in your loved one’s home.
Monitoring is essential
At Visiting Angels’ we continually monitor our elderly care providers through our system of continued personalized contacts. Through telephone check-in’s and home visits, we will be checking regularly with your loved one. We want to ensure that our elderly care recipients receive the best possible care.
Tailor your care to your needs
No two people are the same. Therefore their elderly care needs are going to be very different. Whether you need respite care, in home care, part time or full time care, or care at an assisted living facility, Visiting Angels can provide an experienced elderly care provider that is right for you. Our agency tailors your program of elderly care based on your needs. Your elderly care program is flexible and you can change the program as different needs arise. We will also work along with any home health agency or nursing agency that may be assisting your loved ones after a recent hospital stay.

Nevada Senior Guide Announces Arbors Memory Care Community Top Rating
Nevada Senior Guide Announces Arbors Memory Care Community Receives State’s Top Rating in Annual Survey. Family owned memory care community in Nevada receives another “A” grade.
Sparks, NV, August 09, 2012 –(PR.com)– Family owned memory care community in Nevada receives another “A” grade
Arbors Memory Care Community has received another “A” grade from the State of Nevada Department of Health and Human Services.
This is the 9th year in a row the community in Sparks, which specializes in the care of people with Alzheimer’s and related dementias, has received the highest rating from the Health Division’s Bureau of Health Care Quality and Compliance.
Owned and operated by the Stutchman family, the Arbors has never been resurveyed to achieve the A grade. They have consistently received the highest rating on the first survey or inspection.
Some assisted living and memory care communities receive a lower grade on the first inspection and then must be resurveyed once any deficiencies have been corrected.
During the annual survey state inspectors show up unannounced and check on resident care, medication management, employee fingerprints and background checks, resident medical records, cleanliness of the building and fire safety.
Survey results may be viewed at http://www.health.nv.gov/Deficiencies_Qry.asp#agc_ and click on the AGC/AGZ link.
Each licensed community in the state is surveyed on an annual basis. Facilities then receive a grade between A and D. An A grade means the community is well run with minor administrative issues and no harm is likely to occur. A grade of D means serious harm has occurred or a condition or incident has resulted in death or serious harm and/or multiple administrative issues were cited.
“We are so incredibly proud of our continuous A grade,” said owner Gina Stutchman. “One of the many benefits to being family-owned is that all of the decisions regarding the quality of care are made right here in our building, not at corporate headquarters in another state.”
Stutchman also said the Arbors provides ongoing staff training that far surpasses the state requirements.
“Our training focuses on the fact that each person with memory loss is unique and is affected in a different way. Understanding the disease process and learning a variety of ways to communicate allows our caregivers to reduce anxiety and create a comfort zone for our residents and their families.”
Arbors Memory Care Community is a family-owned and operated residential community providing care for persons living with Alzheimer’s or other dementias.
The Arbors, located at 2121 E. Prater Way in Sparks, offers long term stays, as well as respite stays for caregivers needing a short-term care solution.
