Bethlehem Plan of Care

The plan of care is the heart of our home care services in Bethlehem. Our caregivers use home care plans like a roadmap when they visit our clients. When we create the plan of care here at Homewatch CareGivers in the Lehigh Valley we start by having a conversation with our clients and their loved ones about the little details that make the biggest impact on their lives. We then use these unique details to create a fully customized service plan.

We want to know our clients' individual preferences. For example, we don't just want to know that the caregiver should make breakfast; we want to know what your favorite foods are for breakfast.
