Garland Eastern Dallas and Rockwall Counties

Hello, my name is Jeff Keech and I am the owner of Homewatch CareGivers of Garland. I opened my office in Garland with the vision of providing quality non medical home care services to the great communities in the eastern Dallas and Rockwall county areas. Let me give you a few details as to why I am in this business.

Throughout my childhood, I observed my parents providing care for a family friend, Mary Kubichka. Mary immigrated to the United States with my grandmother in the early 1900s, and although we lived in Connecticut my family made regular trips to New York City to visit her in her apartment. My parents would clean her home and write letters for her while my younger brother and I would play. Eventually Mary moved into a nursing home, and we began visiting her there. I remember playing in the nursing home with my brother, I remember watching baseball games with some of the residents there, and I remember the joy my brother and I brought not just to her but to all the residents. Watching my parents provide this care left a deep impression on me--enough of an impression that as a college student I found off-campus housing in exchange for home care. One semester I lived with a man in his 60s whose battle with multiple sclerosis had left him a quadriplegic and in need of help with basic daily activities such as meal preparation and ambulation. For a year I lived with an 85-year old man who needed help getting out of his bed in the morning, getting back into his bed at night, and some basic companionship.

After college, I began a 20-year career in software development. Although I did well, I wanted to do something more meaningful on a personal level. Once I decided I wanted to start my own company and began investigating potential businesses, choosing home care was an easy decision to make. What is making this even more rewarding is that my mom, Geri, is joining me. She brings with her 40 years of experience as a medical technologist and a lifetime of caring for others.

Choosing a home care agency is no easy task, and every aspect of that agency should be considered--from their staff to the types of care they provide. Homewatch CareGivers prides itself on our ability to understand your home health care needs and seeks to provide the best home care available. At Homewatch Caregivers of Garland we are dedicated to providing the same type of care to each client that I watched my parents provide many years ago. Thank you for considering us for your home care needs. I look forward to getting to know you and your loved ones.
