At Homewatch CareGivers of San Fernando, we set ourselves apart by developing a custom care plan that focuses on the unique needs of your loved one. We’ll develop a plan of care based on your loved one’s abilities and current health, then see what assistance we can provide to help them keep active and growing in the San Fernando Valley.  Many companies develop a plan of care that is very clinical.  Our plan recognizes that everyone has a different idea of what home is to them, and we need to adapt to you.  Some people want meals prepared and served to them.  Some want to assist with the cooking.  Still others find that meal time has been a time for socializing, so they’ll want the caregiver to sit and talk with them at meal time.  Our written plan will cover the basics for staying healthy: eating nutritious meals, getting enough fluids, taking the right medications at the right times, getting exercise both physically and mentally, and getting socializing time.  We’ll discuss activities of daily living, including ambulation, bathing, dressing, grooming, feeding, and toileting.  We’ll also review those activities that you need done in order to keep your home running, such as light housekeeping, watering plants, transportation for shopping, errands, and appointments, etc.  And our plan of care will change as your needs change.  Call us to set up an appointment to create a plan for you.
