Care Available 24 Hours a Day, 7 Days a Week.
Thank you so much for sending your kind, loving ladies to care for my mother. Each and every one that I met went above and beyond to make sure she was comfortable and had what she needed. Again, please give my thanks and warmest regards to all of the sweet ladies who really gave themselves to care for my loved one as if she were their own.

Home care and home health care in Birmingham might sound
like the same thing, but they are two very different kinds of services to help
people continue to live as independently as possible. That is not to say that
these two services don’t work well together. The ideal situation is when we can work

home healthcare can do this and we can be there for other needs. For example,
we had a client who was living with ALS and was non-weight bearing. While there was someone else on hand to handle

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.
