Huntsville Plan of Care

A safe and sure way to ensure that you or your loved one understands the benefits of hiring a home care agency is through a Plan of Care that we provide. At Homewatch CareGivers of Huntsville, Madison, Decatur and all of North Alabama, care plans are roadmaps that make sure you and your loved one know what services can be expected and how such services shall be delivered. We will also discussed our care plan with other members of the clients’ health care team and can be shared with other health professionals involved in their care, such as primary care doctors, physical and occupational therapist.

We make it easy for our clients and family members to talk about your care with your GP, nurse or social worker, because our care plan will be in your home and updated each day that we provide you care.
