Care Available 24 Hours a Day, 7 Days a Week.
My mother is 92. We found Homewatch after using other services previously. She relishes her independence and Homewatch does such a fabulous job that she is able to still live in her own two story home! They do a great job of matching their aides to the wants of the client. My mom wants someone who she can talk to as she was a teacher of Economics at the U of M. We love how Homewatch actually listens to us. We are a raucous, stubborn loving family.

Homewatch CareGivers of Ann Arbor aims to be an integral part of the community by utilizing our community partners and with our expertise understanding and educating on the continuum of care.As part of that continuum, we strongly believe that an integrated team approach with home health touches on the skilled and home care aspects of a client’s recovery or health maintenance. What this means is that home health care and home care provide different services and meet different needs, but they can work together for optimum results for you. In addition to the collaboration in the home, the follow up after home health discharges is even more integral to the continuing recovery and strength of our clients.
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:
At-home physical therapy
Caring for wounds
Home care is 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
Help with errands and chores
Companionship and friendship so your loved one is not lonely
Help preparing meals
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 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.
