When folks in Coeur d’Alene ask us about the difference
between home care and home health care, we explain that what we do is
non-medical. We do not have nurses on staff to provide services directly to our
clients. What see often happen is that someone will have home health care—a nurse
or therapist—and they want or need more. But home health care is typically only
in the home three times a week and that’s where we come in. We’re here to fill
in the gaps with what home health cannot do for you like transport you to a
doctor’s appointment or cook a meal for you. Home health care might only be able to be in the home for a few hours a week, but we can be there for 24 hours

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.
