PORT ORCHARD — Visiting Angels of Kitsap County is the recipient of a 2017 Leader in Excellence Award from Home Care Pulse, a satisfaction research firm for the home care imdustry.

Home Care Pulse (www.homecarepulse.com) ranks Visiting Angels (www.visitingangels.com/westsound) among a small handful of home-care providers “who have proven their ability to provide an exceptional working experience to employees and the highest quality care to clients.”

They are kind, patient, skillful, and compassionate. They really have a heart for our seniors. We strive to exceed our client’s expectations, and it is deeply gratifying to receive this award.”

Visiting Angels provides families with respite care, companionship, personal hygiene assistance, meal planning and preparation, light housekeeping, laundry assistance, medication reminders, and assistance running errands. Visiting Angels provides hourly care, overnight care, and 24-hour care.
