Who is eligible for home care services at locations serviced by Angels on Call?
Participants looking for home care services must meet both financial and medical requirements. CHC waiver is for participants who are 21+, have Medicaid and Medicare. Services are generally available to individuals who require assistance with daily living activities and cannot perform these tasks independently due to a physical, cognitive, or chronic health condition.
Can I choose my own caregiver in my area?
Angels on Call offers our clients the ability to choose their caregivers. We understand that the relationship between the client and caregiver is crucial and believe that clients should have a say in who provides their care. We ensure our caregivers are well-trained and qualified to provide the necessary care.
What services are included in home care?

Our agency aides also provide care for participants dealing with disease management, and dementia & Alzheimer’s.
How much does it cost and will insurance cover it?
No. Our belief is that independence is being in control of your decisions. Having in home care services means being in control of your activities and retaining as much independence as each situation allows. Many of our clients just need a little help to continue living a safe and productive life while some might be recovering from a fall or surgery, or other condition. Regardless of your situation, our goal is to enable you the best possible outcome while being in control of your care and daily decisions.
Is there a minimum number of hours to receive care?
We do not have a minimum number of hours for a client to receive care.
How do you credential your caregivers?
Our Golden Rule states ‘We will not refer a caregiver into your home that we would not welcome into our own home.’ This high bar was set by our founder in 1982 and is the backbone of our mission. Similar to any working professional, caregivers are attracted to organizations that have trust, compassion, stability, and hope. We encourage you to meet one of our local Directors or Referral Specialists as they will treat you with as much compassion and dignity as they afford to each caregiver they refer.
What if I need a nurse?
Our CarePairing Process works with each family to understand what unique skills and personality are desired in a caregiver. Feedback from satisfied clients usually indicates that a personality match is the #1 factor in a caregiver match, so we highly encourage client input. We will then make a referral based on our experience and your input.
What if I have a problem or concern?
We make the process of finding a caregiver very simple and prompt using our QuickCare Placement program. Give us a call and we’ll conduct a brief phone discussion to understand your needs. We then can meet anyone involved in selecting and paying for care at your home for an in-home needs consultation. Within 24 hours of that visit we are usually able to refer a professional caregiver to your home. Our team continuously screens caregivers beyond current demand to give you quick access to the best caregivers in our community.
