Care Available 24 Hours a Day, 7 Days a Week.
I'm beginning to feel better and thanks to your home care services and drivers I am able to get out of the house. I appreciate the time you take to speak with me and all the assistance you give me. Thanks for the pens - hopefully I won't lose them. You guys are great!!

Home care in Ottawa provides professionally trained caregivers who
are supervised, receive on going education and have access to support 24 hours
a day, 7 days a week, and this is different than home health care. Homewatch CareGivers in Ottawa have nurses on staff to
help support our families and caregivers. There is a difference in care when
you bring in a professional that follows doctors orders, provides appropriate
nutrition according to a specialized diet, can supplement the physio therapy
exercises and work in a higher level of dementia care. We have caregivers that
offer companionship, light housekeeping and escorts to appointments. Our
personal support workers, companions, developmental service workers and nurses
have all passed a skills assessment test, a literacy test, and background
check. Technology allows our staff to update notes in the files on a shift to
shift bases plus our clients and their families can send us messages no matter
where they are - at home, at work, on vacation.
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.
