Care Available 24 Hours a Day, 7 Days a Week.
I don't know how I got so lucky choosing Homewatch CareGivers of Garland. I think it was time to have something good happen! I am very impressed with Alma and Jeff and the way everything has been handled. Also, I knew immediately when I met the caregiver that it was going to be great. I'm looking forward to a long relationship with you all.

that you may have questions about the types of services available to keep your
family safe and healthy in Garland, East Dallas County and Rockwall County. The two types of care that immediately come to
mind are Home Health Care and Home Care. Home Health Care encompasses
many of the activities associated with a traditional hospital, skilled nursing
facility, or rehabilitation center. Some of these activities include
Skilled Nursing, Physical Therapy, and Wound Care. Home Care encompasses
many of the other activities provided to a patient at a hospital, skilled
nursing facility, or rehabilitation facility. Activities that maintain,
enhance, and improve a patient’s quality of life. These activities
include help with personal grooming, ambulation and mobility, and medication
reminders. They also include lesser thought of but no less important
activities. Companionship, meal preparation, assistance with a hobby that
time has made more difficult. Perhaps a loved one enjoyed basic
landscaping and maintained a flower garden, but can no longer do the upkeep of
a flower bed. Our caregivers can assist, and this type of activity can be
included in a plan of care. One of our clients lived alone in Eastern
Rockwall County with his dog, far from the nearest pet store. This client
had regular home health visits, providing basic nursing care for his medical
needs. Our plan of care included regular visits to the pet store,
providing basic emotional care for his spirit. In addition to working
with the home health company to ensure the client adhered to his home health
instructions and routines, our caregivers were there to provide for his mental
and emotional needs, including his need to be a friend to ‘man’s best friend’.Below are some
distinctions between home health care and home care.
After a doctor’s visit or stay in the hospital, skilled care in the home is arranged in order to get you or a loved one back on your feet. Home healthcare includes:
Home care is about sustaining and maintaining your loved one’s quality of life in their home by assisting with activities of daily living:
While a skilled home healthcare professional changes your loved one’s prescriptions, an in-home caregiver helps them remember to take medications day in and day out. A home healthcare agency can change your loved one’s therapy if it’s not working, and an in-home caregiver is there to encourage them to accomplish those therapies. At Homewatch CareGivers' our person-directed approach to caregiving helps an individual to the best of their current abilities so that they continue to feel empowered and fulfilled.
