Care Available 24 Hours a Day, 7 Days a Week.
My 98 year old mother is in independent living but needed someone to be there in the mornings to get her breakfast, take her on a walk, set out her daily meds and provide companionship. Wendy and her staff are fabulous! They are very attentive to mom's changing needs and schedule, and have given my brothers and I a tremendous sense of comfort knowing that she is being so well cared for. I hold Wendy and her staff in the highest regard, and recommend them to anyone needing care for a loved one.

Home care and home health care in Plano are complementary
services that have distinct differences. Home care services can be more
flexible than home health services so our trained caregivers can come when it
suits you, even if that is in the evening or on a weekend. In this way, you can
utilize both home care and home health care—such as physical therapy and
occupational therapy—to meet all of your needs. There are even times when these
services may overlap to benefit you. For example, our caregivers may get there
when your physical therapy is nearly over and learn from the therapist when to
remind you to do your exercises. In our experience, our caregivers can be there
to help grocery shop and make healthy choices with you, provide reminders on nighttime
medications and assist in other ways too.
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.
