Elder Care

Senior care services in Thousand Oaks will be unique for each client and their family. Our caregivers sometimes make a lasting impact on a family through the care they provide. We provided care for a woman who was 88 years and living with dementia. This woman had pretty much given up on everything—she wouldn’t move or do anything--and her husband and adult kids were worn out. Our caregiver came in and was an incredible perfect match. The husband couldn’t believe what a difference this caregiver made in their lives. Our caregiver became like a member of the family. Although this woman passed away, her husband still stops by to visit us in our office.

Our caregiving team creates a care plan that we base on talking with each of our clients and their families, and understanding their needs and wants. We provide services such as nutritional meal planning a preparation. We can even go shopping with you or transport you to doctors appointments or social engagements.

In home care can provide meaningful companionship for people who have limited social engagement due to health problems. Studies show that feelings of loneliness can lead to depression and even dementia. With our caregiver matching, we aim to create a mutually beneficial relationship between clients and caregivers as your loved one continues to grow and learn through social interactions. We can also provide transportation to church and other outings with old friends.
A need for 24-hour care in the home may last for a few days or for many years. Continuous round-the-clock care provided by Homewatch CareGivers can maximize the time that someone has with their family, while also making them comfortable and safe. Our flexible home care service plans can make caregivers available on shifts that cover day and night for all kinds of needs—specialized personal care related to immobility, toileting, meal preparation, and support through the end of life and grief process.
Homewatch CareGivers specializes in elder care for people who need assistance with activities of daily living such as bathing, grooming, and meal preparation. Our caregivers are trained and educated to address the unique interests and needs of each person that they spend time with, whether they are with them for a couple of hours a day or 24 hours a day. We aim to engage our clients with meaningful experiences that will enrich their lives, while giving their family peace of mind that they are well cared for with us.
When we come into the home of an elder, we start by talking to them about their current abilities, needs, and preferences, and then we are able to craft a care plan to address this individual. In home elder care is about making sure that each person is able to continue living independently and safely for as long as they are able and choose this for themselves. Our caregivers are matched with each client so that they can also be true companions who reduce any feelings of loneliness, helplessness, and boredom.
Maintaining good health is part of preventative care, which may be the difference between staying at home and going to the hospital. For those who are recovering from a hospital stay, our caregivers can help with sticking to a physical therapy regimen, giving reminders about properly taking medications, and reviewing potential falls hazards in the home in order to reduce the possibility of a hospital readmission.
