Homewatch Caregivers in Crystal Lake, Il is a wonderful agency. One of my clients was in need of companion care. Her social support system was limited and she seemed to be regressing in terms of independence. Homewatch provided a fantastic companion that assisted this client in getting back into the community to shop, get her hair done and get to social activities. I highly recommend Homewatch Caregivers in Crystal Lake, Illinois.

Dementia care will become one of the most important needs in the United States health care system for the next quarter century. Over 5 million people in the USA have dementia today, in just five years the number of Americans with Alzheimer's will jump to nearly 8 million, and by 2050 the number is projected to more than double to 16 million.
Our knowing how to care for people living with dementia is requisite for our caregivers and the most important thing they learn is that no two people are alike. The care for someone with dementia needs to be flexible and fluid. Becoming a caregiver for a person with dementia means letting go of norms and expectations of how this person used to be. They are forever changed and the caregiver must adapt as well. This is why we see so many people reaching out to us to help with dementia care for their loved one--our caregivers don’t bring the memory of how that person used to be and instead simply accepts them as how they are today.
