In 1989, Jeffrey Johnson was working as the Director of Social Work at a nursing home in Baltimore, MD. Jeffrey became disenchanted with the community resources and the "indifferent" attitude that some had toward the residents of the nursing home (and the fact that there were very limited options for living arrangements outside of the facility).
Jeffrey wanted more choices for families and more options for the elderly. In 1998, Jeffrey met Larry Meigs, a Franchise Developer from Philadelphia, PA, who was working to launch Visiting Angels as a national Franchisor in private duty home care. Together, they opened Visiting Angels/Living Assistance Services with the intention of promoting a unique approach to home care: "Caring first, profits second."
Actual owner reviews from our third party, independent surveys.
"The quality of service is very different from the competitors. At any time that I mention that the client gets to interview and choose their caregivers, they react very surprised because they have not experienced that with any other company. Also, we have an excellent ongoing dementia training, which also makes the difference in the quality of service."

"The people managing our franchise system are incredible. They have many years of experience in home care and they are readily accessible to you when you have questions. The materials they make available to you are invaluable. The operational branch is very strong as is the marketing branch. I would just like to see more practical on the job training by shadowing an existing owner."
