Myself and my family can't thank you and all of your staff enough for the exceptional care that you took of our mother. Each of your caregivers were absolutely wonderful and particularly Nicole. We would not hesitate recommending you to any other families in our situation.

Providing dementia care for a loved one suffering from this progressive disease can
be very challenging and presents a lot of changes in their lives and their families in Wilmington.
Many of Homewatch CareGivers caregivers have years of experience with dementia
and have developed tools and strategies to help cope with the difficulties of
the disease. About a quarter to one third of our clients suffer from some form
of dementia so dealing with the disease is something we specialize in. One
caregiver named Betty cared for an 87-year old woman who suffered from dementia. When
she started with the woman she noticed how sad she would get because she kept
thinking of where she had lived a good portion of her life in downtown
Wilmington. The woman had moved from the area many years prior but still
insisted that she was supposed to be going back to her old home. Betty the
caregiver happened to live by the womans old home. She decided to go down to
the home and took a few pictures of the house. She then took the pictures back
to the womans home on her next shift. Betty found some old pictures of the home
from when her client lived there in her collection of photos. Betty showed her
the new pictures alongside the old pictures to help her remember the times she
had lived in the home which helped the woman remember stories from her past
that she could share with Betty. The pictures helped to calm and cheer up the
woman when she got confused about her present living conditions.
