Care Available 24 Hours a Day, 7 Days a Week.
“We have had the pleasure of doing business with Homewatch Caregivers for 3 years. We have always had good service. Our care giver has become like one of the family.”

When an individual has cognitive impairment, dementia, or Alzheimer’s
disease in Northshore Chicago, Northbrook, and surrounding areas, life changes
for them and their family. It’s no
longer as simple as getting up, taking a shower and being on your way. We focus
on catering to the individual and what they want and need, which is different
for each person in the process of their dementia. We create a customized plan
of care to address physical as well as cognitive needs.
We worked with a man who had run a construction company forever
and a day, but after a diagnsosi of Alzheimer’s, he no longer went to work. His
wife could not get him out of bed to shower and get dressed. We came in, saw
what he wanted and needed and our caregiver took this man to some old job sites
and he became excited and it was easy to get him ready for “work” each day. His
son had taken over the business, so we’d meet his son at lunch and he’d give
his son advice on a current project. We didn’t solve his problems with
Alzheimer’s, but he was infinitely better doing what he loved each day.
