Care Available 24 Hours a Day, 7 Days a Week.
Nanci was absolutely wonderful to our daughter. This was our first time using HWCG and we were nervous about having someone come into our home and watching our child but we couldn't have gotten better care. We would recommend HWCG to anyone. In addition, we really appreciated the phone call from the owner prior to services being rendered. It really helped ease our minds. Thanks, Homewatch CareGivers !

As an expert with over 30 years of experience in home care, Homewatch CareGivers of East Atlanta is often called upon to educate our clients, their families, and communities, on the differences between home health and home care. Home health care is considered skilled and medical in nature, including common services such as occupational, physical, and speech therapy. It can also cover in-home nursing visits after a procedure. Home health care is often very short in duration.
Home care is much longer term in nature, covering the daily needs of an individual such as bathing, grooming, meal prep, maintaining adherence to diet plans and medication reminders.
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.
