Florence And Surrounding Areas

A Plan of Care is an agreement between you the client and our agency, Homewatch CareGivers of Florence/Muscle Shoals and all of West Alabama to help you manage your health day to day. It is a written document that records your current health condition and it includes your directives for how our caregivers will provide daily services.

The Plan of Care is designed to help our clients and their loved ones, rather than the physician and other healthcare workers that look after you. We coach and encourage all new clients to say what's important to you and that you're happy with any decisions that are put into the plan. Unless health and social care workers know what you want, they can't put it in.
