Care for Degenerative Disorders

Many of our clients are faced with degenerative disorders that often create challenges in everyday living.  All of Homewatch CareGivers of Tucson’s caregivers are trained in working with disorders such as ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease), Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis and arthritis. Our goal is always to match our clients with a caregiver that best meets their needs. One of the biggest challenges we can help with is safety.  Our caregivers are trained to be aware of any potential safety hazards and fall risks. From bathing to tracking medications, our team is there to help ensure our clients are safe and cared for. Homewatch CareGivers of Tucson will customize a care plan for you or your loved one. We recognize that the need of each client is different and we will ensure that you or your loved one are provided with excellent care.

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.
