Care Available 24 Hours a Day, 7 Days a Week.
As a hospice social worker, I care for patients and families during one of the most intimate and difficult times. For my team and me these people are like family. At times, families need additional help and I make referrals to care giving agencies. Homewatch Caregivers is consistently on the list. I have found that Homewatch cares as if my families are theirs as well. Zahra and her team are responsive to the needs of my patients and families and are professional to work with.

People who are living with a degenerative disorder such as
multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) or
something else, typically need the physical assistance of a professional
caregiver, but can maintain their social connections independently. In Hickory
Hills, we provide care for degenerative disorders like this.
One of our clients was a 25-year old woman living with
severe ALS, who liked to go out with her friends and was active on social
media. Our caregivers would help this young lady get ready to go out with her
friends since she needed assistance with bathing and grooming, and sometimes eating.
Many people we have cared for who are living with a degenerative disorder are
fully engaged with their family and friends, but do have personal needs.
