Care for Degenerative Disorders

As the owners of Homewatch CareGivers of Englewood, we have immense compassion for those affected by degenerative disorders. We have personally navigated this difficult journey with our own family members and we know how crucial it is to involve outside help as the activities of daily living become more challenging. For this reason we make sure that our caregivers are specifically trained to adapt to the ever-changing symptoms of progressive disorders. We are equally proud to partner with the" “Parkinson's of the Rockies Association" by participating in ongoing educational events, fundraisers and support groups.

We may not be able to cure these life-changing degenerative disorders but we can ease their emotional, physical and mental burdens by offering tenderness, patience and understanding.

"We can never repay you for making such a difficult time so much easier. Rene was far more than a caregiver, she was family." ~ Jeff and Tina, son and daughter of a client

ALS or Lou Gehrig's Disease leads to muscle weakening and affects one’s ability to control voluntary movements of the muscles including those that control breathing. As a person progressively loses their ability to function independently, they will require additional care in the home. Our caregivers can assist with mobility and transfers, plan and prepare special diets to facilitate good nutrition, and offer emotional support allowing the client enough time to communicate, always being sensitive to the preservation of the client’s dignity.
Parkinson’s disease gradually affects the nervous system to the point where the affected person will need help with ambulation, daily chores, personal grooming, and more. Our caregivers have specialized training to help if your loved one experiences cognitive symptoms associated with Parkinson’s disease. We are here to support the family caregivers who may not be able to manage all of the care for all Parkinson’s symptoms.
The symptoms of multiple sclerosis vary by individual, but as this unpredictable and disabling illness of the central nervous system advances it disrupts the flow of information between the brain and the body. While many people with MS experience a years-long remission of the disease, others may lose the ability to walk and require additional care for daily activities.
Osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and other types of arthritis can be extremely painful and affect a person’s ability to take care of themselves. Homewatch CareGivers is here to provide in home care when you or a loved one experience a flare up of osteoarthritis symptoms or rheumatoid arthritis pain. Know when to ask for additional help so that you can continue to live a full and independent life.
