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 !

Caring for a loved one with a developmental disability can
impact the well-being of their family caregivers.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that
“balance is key” for caregivers who have a long-term obligation to provide some
level of care.
Experts caution family caregivers not to try being a
“perfect caregiver” that is consumed by caregiving responsibilities. While it
may seem like the family caregiver is the only person who can provide the
necessary assistance, it can be beneficial to delegate some responsibilities--
either on a regular basis or for time away to recharge.
Loneliness can be an issue for someone with developmental
disabilities as well as for their caregivers. It is encouraged that all persons
involved—both the giver and receiver of care-- maintain personal interests and friendships.
Family caregivers should be attentive to their own health and
wellness too. Take time to see a health care provider for advice about eating a
healthy diet and getting regular exercise to avoid risk of illness and burnout.
