what is home care

Our caregivers in Arvada work in concert with home health care to establish an effective and safe discharge plan. When your loved one is discharged to their home from the hospital or rehab with a prescription of home health care the plan isn't complete without home care services. While home health care can perform wound care and administer medications our caregivers perform the other 98% of the tasks necessary to remain safe at home.  Namely, walking (ambulation) assistance and fall prevention, assistance with getting out of bed and chairs, help with getting dressed, bathing assistance, medications reminders and so much more. Call us and keep your loved one safe and happy in their homes while recovering.

Home Healthcare

After a doctor’s visit or stay in the hospital, skilled care in the home is arranged in order to get you or a loved one back on your feet. Home healthcare includes:

  • Skilled nursing
  • At-home physical therapy
  • Pain Management
  • Caring for wounds
  • Prescription management

Home Care

In home care services are about sustaining and maintaining your loved one’s quality of life in their home by assisting with activities of daily living:

  • Help with personal grooming like bathing or getting dressed
  • Help with moving around and getting in and out of bed or the shower
  • Medication reminders
  • Help with errands and chores
  • Companionship and friendship so your loved one is not lonely
  • Help preparing meals

How do home care and home healthcare work together?

While a skilled home healthcare professional changes your loved one’s prescriptions, an in-home caregiver helps them remember to take medications day in and day out. A home healthcare agency can change your loved one’s therapy if it’s not working, and an in-home caregiver is there to encourage them to accomplish those therapies. At Arvada 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.
