We thank you for sending Susan to us! It's hard to believe she's been part of our family for two years. She's cheerful, fun and very attentive with our mother; reads to her, listens to music with her, watches mom's DVDs as well as much more. We love her very much.

In the past 9 years at Homewatch CareGivers of Columbia we have serviced approximately 600 private pay clients of which 70 % had some form of dementia. More than half of the time the dementia diagnosis was the primary reason we were called to provide home care services. As dementia home care specialists, we are specifically trained in how to respond appropriately and take care of a client with memory impairment issues from the early onset to the end stages of the disease.
most of our caregivers are experienced in dementia care, all staff receives specialized
ongoing dementia-specific training because it’s the most common concern for
most of our clients. It all starts with the initial home care evaluations. Part
of our process is to get a social history on the client, especially important
when providing dementia care. We want to know what’s happened in their life. Is
faith important to them? What are their favorite things? Colors, food, music,
pets; all the events and interests that shape who they are. We take all of this into account when we pair
a caregiver with a client.
