Ken is a true Texan, born and raised in Greenville. He worked as a salesman, until he had a series of strokes. Ten years ago, while living in an assisted living facility, a group of the residents took a day trip. While on the road they were hit by an eighteen-wheeler truck. This resulted in Ken being a quadriplegic. Ken also has diabetes and COPD. Homewatch has been providing 24/7 care for him since May 2016. Our caregivers assist in bathing, dressing, and grooming. They care for his toileting needs and change his linens. They feed him and make sure he gets to enjoy his favorite snacks. They engage with him to practice his speech therapies, play games on his computer, and change the TV channels to the shows Ken likes to watch.
