Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information
Visiting Angels are continuing to deliver vital care and support in the community throughout Covid-19. However, we understand that Covid-19 is a major concern for our clients and their families. We always have robust infection control measures in place, and with the additional infection control training we have provided, you can be assured we work to meticulous standards of hygiene. Our high staff retention means our care teams are consistent which gives the best possible protection from infection. Because the same caregiver comes each week, even in the uncertainty of the current situation, there will always be the comfort of a familiar face.

Home Care for Cambridgeshire

Quality Home Care in Cambridgeshire

Why choose Visiting Angels as your Home Care solution?

Our unique approach to managing your home care begins with listening to you. We know that purchasing home care is rarely a happy occasion, driven by either an acute health episode, or a slower deterioration in health or mobility, which has prompted a call for help.

Therefore our team give the time to understanding your personal story, your circumstances, concerns and needs, we then create a home care plan completely tailored for you, or your elderly loved one.

Home sweet home care

We help you or your loved one remain independent, and cared for in the comfort of your own home for as long as possible! With a Visiting Angels tailored home care package, from a couple of hours per week respite care, to complete live-in care, our home care services can flex to your needs, and develop over time as you require.

What is Carer-centricity?

This means that we put our Caregivers (Angels) at the heart of everything we do. We set them up for success in delivering the care you need, we believe that care cannot be rushed, and that companionship should come as standard.

Importantly, we also reward our Angels with the best pay rates in the industry, as well as continually developing their abilities to deliver quality care.

Which types of Home Care do we provide?

At Visiting Angels we have an extremely experienced team of Senior Caregiving Angels who have been delivering care for between 2-15 years. We are therefore able to provide a range of care services including:

  • Personal Care
  • Older People Care
  • Companionship and domestic help
  • Dementia and Alzheimers Care
  • Stroke Care
  • Live-in Care
  • Palliative Care
  • End of Life Care
  • Respite Care

A free pre-support assessment will identify all of your specific health needs, such as support with medication & nutrition, and will allow us to tailor your care plan to these needs.

Additional specialist training is given where needed so that our Caregiving Angels know exactly how to best support you, or your elderly loved one, thus providing excellent value for money.

We provide local carers (Angels) that live in or near to your community, and we match them to both you and your home care needs through Choose Your Caregiver .

What is Choose Your Caregiver?

An essential part of our service is to give our clients a choice of caregiver matched to their own specific care needs, and to their hobbies, pastimes and interests. We introduce you to our matched Caregiver before home care starts, so that you can get to know them and decide if they are right for you. It is important for our long-term relationship that our clients trust the Angels that they invite into their homes, and enjoy being in their company.

How important is a pre-support assessment?

To provide you or your loved one with outstanding Home Care, we do a very detailed assessment of who you are, your story, your back ground and interests. This means that we quickly get to know your close family and your social network. We also work with other healthcare stakeholders to fully understand your medical history in order to craft a home care plan tailored to your needs.

This assessment is provided free and without obligation, so that you can sample the quality of our Home Care service before making a decision. After all, choosing the Home Care provider which is right for you, or your loved one is important, and the last thing you need is any pushy sales people adding unnecessary pressure.

“I have no hesitation in recommending the Visiting Angels team. They listened carefully to our particular needs and provided a detailed care plan which has now been implemented.

The individual carer has shown understanding and patience, already going the extra mile to ensure individual needs are met. Tremendous service.”

John W.

“We found Visiting Angels to be well-managed and professional. They were thorough and took time to assess our particular and personal situation and requirements.

Throughout, they were caring, willing and adaptable. I have no hesitation in recommending such a supportive and trustworthy company.”

Our story

We met as Area Sales Managers working together in the same pharmaceutical company 20 years ago. Having been happily married for the last 13 years, we have a 10 year old son called Thomas. We share the same passion for doing what is best and right for our patients/clients, and our teams, and importantly we also share the same sense of humour.

The small village of Yelling became our home seven years ago, and we have certainly settled, putting down many roots through a network of friendships, as well as membership of different clubs and societies throughout Cambridgeshire. It is an absolute pleasure to serve both our local and wider communities.

Ian

I recently left my Marketing and Sales career in pharmaceuticals spanning 25 wonderful years, to start Visiting Angels Cambridgeshire, to fulfil a lifelong ambition for running my own company. But why did I choose the care sector with all of its challenges of recruiting and retaining good Caregivers?

Over the past 2 years we have witnessed the deterioration in my dear parents-in-laws’ health and have seen first-hand how their home care support has been delivered. Receiving 2×30 minute and 2×15 minute calls per day is neither sufficient for them, nor their caregivers.

There just isn’t enough time in any of these calls for my parents-in-law to feel like they are being treated with dignity and respect, nor for the caregivers themselves to be set up for success and achieve a level of job satisfaction.

The care plan and the system which developed it is fundamentally flawed. My purpose is to provide a new care option for Cambridgeshire, and it is my pleasure to serve the community in which I live.

Nicola

My first job after leaving school was as a qualified nurse, before working in the pharmaceutical industry for twenty four years. Now I work in Mental Health as Head of Patient and Carer Engagement, PALs and Complaints for St Andrews Healthcare in Northampton. Presently, I sit on the Visiting Angels Company Board as a Non-Executive director, and provide Ian and Sam with guidance and support from a healthcare perspective.

Experience of working in a highly regulated environment together with a focus on quality improvements, as a result of my work with patients and their families, means I can make contributions that will be invaluable to our organisation.

Sam Kingston – Registered Care Manager

Having been in the care industry for nearly ten years in various settings, I have developed a passion for working with people in their own homes and providing an exceptionally high quality of care.

I have come to learn that staff are the heart of any organisation. When they’re happy and enthusiastic, this translates into our clients receiving the best possible care.

I love my job!

My career began as a support worker before working my way up to manage a large department and eventually going on to start up a new service.

Having done this, I realise the importance of embedding good practice from the first day to develop a safe and caring service.

The goal now is to create a service rated as Outstanding by the CQC, and to create a culture which benefits both our clients and our Angels.

“Thank for literally being “visiting angels” to dad. Without you his life would not have that magic touch you brought to him. You will be treasured for your work.”

John

“I want to thank you for sending me such a wonderful Angel to help me during my recuperation. I always felt safe and comfortable when she was here.”
