Story of Homewatch CareGivers of Central Bucks County
Get to Know our Caregiving Agency in Warminster
Hello, my name is Johanna Gillen, I am the Owner and President of Homewatch CareGivers of Central Bucks County.
In my life, I have had the unique experience of being a caregiver for both my own family, as well as clients through an agency, hiring caregivers as a client, hiring caregivers as an employer, and spending time with families/clients to understand their plan of care.
I have seen and understand all aspects of the caregiver/client relationship.
In 2008, I became primary caregiver for an injured family member. Although a personally exhausting and frustrating position at times, I found the experience to be very rewarding.
In 2011, I earned my CNA (Certified Nurse Assistant) certification and decided I wanted to help other seniors and physically disabled individuals.
One becomes a great caregiver because they truly want to help and enrich someone’s life.
In 2012, I cared for my father after a cancer diagnosis; and again in 2015 as my mother faced her own cancer diagnosis. Caring for a loved one is an incredibly emotional experience and can be very hard for family members to handle on their own and that’s why I want to provide respite care and other support for people who are trying to do it all on their own when a loved one needs help.
In 2014, I obtained a position as Director of Client Services for a home care agency where I had the opportunity to meet with families and understand the characteristics important to a successful caregiver/client relationship, as well as how to operate a home care agency successfully.
In 2019, I had the opportunity to go one step further and purchase my own home care franchise, where I look forward to employing individuals who have the same passion to help as I did and to provide an individualized plan of care for our clients to ensure their highest quality of life.
I look forward to getting to know you and how we can be of help. Please give us a call today.
