Ottawa Care for Degenerative Disorders

At Homewatch CareGivers in Ottawa we continue to provide up to date training in working with our clients living with disabilities with care for degenerative disorders. Supervision is available by qualified professionals 24/7 ensuring that our caregivers are confident that they are providing the best possible care for their clients.  A plan of care is developed to assist in matching the client and their caregiver. Before a caregiver can be assigned to a case with a degenerative disorder, they are required to have experience working in that specific situation. Via our Homewatch CareGivers University additional education can be assigned by the supervisor. Contact with organizations such as the Parkinson or MS Society's help us stay up to date making sure that our clients are in capable hands. A deep understanding of how to work with our clients is essential since they need to trust us when they are vulnerable. 

ALS or Lou Gehrig's Disease leads to muscle weakening and affects one’s ability to control voluntary movements of the muscles including those that control breathing. As a person progressively loses their ability to function independently, they will require additional care in the home. Our caregivers can assist with mobility and transfers, plan and prepare special diets to facilitate good nutrition, and offer emotional support allowing the client enough time to communicate, always being sensitive to the preservation of the client’s dignity.
Parkinson’s disease gradually affects the nervous system to the point where the affected person will need help with ambulation, daily chores, personal grooming, and more. Our caregivers have specialized training to help if your loved one experiences cognitive symptoms associated with Parkinson’s disease. We are here to support the family caregivers who may not be able to manage all of the care for all Parkinson’s symptoms.
The symptoms of multiple sclerosis vary by individual, but as this unpredictable and disabling illness of the central nervous system advances it disrupts the flow of information between the brain and the body. While many people with MS experience a years-long remission of the disease, others may lose the ability to walk and require additional care for daily activities.
