Huntsville Madison County, Decatur, and Northern Alabama

We are Al and Pat Herbert, proud owner's of Huntsville's premier home care agency Homewatch CareGivers. Most would agree that family life was very different 40 years ago when Pat started our family than it is today. Most of our family lived in the same community and even on the same street. Our grandparents, Millman and Lilia, cousins, Richard and Sonny, aunts, Dolores and Big Mamma, uncles, Mark and Uncle Dee, mothers, Rosie and Mary and fathers, CY and Bubba, all lived within minutes from us. Bottom-line, back then family took care of you and you took care of family. Pat and I were truly blessed to have this level of support from our family during the early years.

With that support, Pat and I successfully completed our education, enjoyed the births of daughters, Kevi and Keko, and now have six grandchildren to love and nurture. The major differences in people’s lives today as opposed to 40 years ago are that most work past the retirement age of their parents, and the physical distance that we are separated from our loved ones is much greater. For example, Pat and I now live 1,000 miles from our first daughter, Kevi, and more than 1,100 miles from our second daughter, Keko. Kevi lives in Maryland and Keko in New Jersey.

Our motivation to open Homewatch CareGivers of Huntsville is deeply rooted in our family’s commitment to fill the family support vacuum created by physical distance of loved ones. Our goal is to provide seniors and their family that capable and willing extended family member for their support, comfort, and the quality of life they deserve.

Pat and I learned many years ago that when it comes to family, one can never predict with 100 percent certainty what their needs may be in the future. What we do know is that when it comes to family, one must plan 100 percent for uncertainty. To these ends, the mission and guiding principle of Homewatch CareGivers of Huntsville is to preserve dignity, protect independence, and provide peace of mind for our clients and their loved ones by providing exceptional home care.
