Freeland Midland, Bay City and Saginaw

A caregiver’s function is so much more than cooking, cleaning and personal care assistance. Homewatch CareGivers of Freeland pays special attention to each client’s tastes, preferences, hobbies and interests when constructing the plan of care.  These details in each client care plan assist greatly when matching caregiver to client to ensure greater compatibility.  We care for a retired minister who loves to be outside in nature, sing and be read to from his literature.  Our caregiver has learned his songs and sings them with him, especially when he is having a tough moment. This caregiver has used her love of song to connect with our client and help him feel content and peaceful. Our client’s dementia has changed his lifestyle, but with the right match he is benefiting from the reassurance of living in familiar surroundings and participating in meaningful activities.
