Care for Degenerative Disorders

Meeting the varied but increasing needs of those with degenerative disorders requires knowing your loved one on a personal level. We want to know what they love and what changes they've made to deal with the challenges they face including Parkinson's disease, Multiple Sclerosis, ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease), or arthritis.
Homewatch CareGivers supports those in North San Antonio by providing MS home care and care for other degenerative disorders to help each individual living with one of these illnesses to get more out of life and regain experiences that they may be missing. 

Our personalized in-home evaluation is centered on getting to know the client, his/her passions, current or former hobbies, interests and desires.  We will work with families to assist loved ones in living past their MS, ALS, Parkinson's or arthritis and experience feelings of joy and self-worth, which they may be missing. 
While degenerative disorders can limit activities of daily living, our caregivers are specially trained to facilitate mental and physical exercise that studies, experts, doctors, research shows combat ALS, MS, Parkinson's & arthritis effects. 

ALS or Lou Gehrig's Disease leads to muscle weakening and affects one’s ability to control voluntary movements of the muscles including those that control breathing. As a person progressively loses their ability to function independently, they will require additional care in the home. Our caregivers can assist with mobility and transfers, plan and prepare special diets to facilitate good nutrition, and offer emotional support allowing the client enough time to communicate, always being sensitive to the preservation of the client’s dignity.
Parkinson’s disease gradually affects the nervous system to the point where the affected person will need help with ambulation, daily chores, personal grooming, and more. Our caregivers have specialized training to help if your loved one experiences cognitive symptoms associated with Parkinson’s disease. We are here to support the family caregivers who may not be able to manage all of the care for all Parkinson’s symptoms.
The symptoms of multiple sclerosis vary by individual, but as this unpredictable and disabling illness of the central nervous system advances it disrupts the flow of information between the brain and the body. While many people with MS experience a years-long remission of the disease, others may lose the ability to walk and require additional care for daily activities.
Osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and other types of arthritis can be extremely painful and affect a person’s ability to take care of themselves. Homewatch CareGivers is here to provide in home care when you or a loved one experience a flare up of osteoarthritis symptoms or rheumatoid arthritis pain. Know when to ask for additional help so that you can continue to live a full and independent life.
