Columbus Plan of Care

There is no one-size-fits-all plan of care and that’s why Homewatch CareGivers of Columbus creates a customized plan of care based on the unique preferences and needs of each client.

For example, a person interviewed Homewatch CareGivers a couple years ago and chose us among 5 other providers. The reason she chose us over the other agencies was because she really liked the Caregiver that was at the interview. From the very first conversation, the two of them really hit it off. They both had a passion for animals, they both enjoyed shoe shopping, and their favorite food was chocolate ice cream. As part of this person's plan of care, we ensured that all these activities and more were included. Every week, the family member and Caregiver would go out into the community and participate in something they both liked. They recently saw the latest "Avengers" movie and both gave it two thumbs up! To this day, the two are inseparable. The family member has never had any other Caregiver work with her and claims the two are now best friends. Their story was so touching that the two were even interviewed by "Good Day Columbus" this past February, and they were able to share their story with all of central Ohio.
