Care Available 24 Hours a Day, 7 Days a Week.
We talked with Homewatch CareGivers of Freeland, and they sounded able and willing to do whatever Mom needed. For the next two years, starting with a few needs and gradually increasing, they became Mom's trusted helpers - and the boots on the ground for those of us who couldn't be there.

It takes an intuitive personality to specialize in memory care because we are truly care partners working together to communicate effectively. Client safety comes first in all cases, but dementia care adds another element; it’s about building our clients’ level of trust and comfort every day. If a person feels that they say and do the wrong thing too often, they will eventually withdraw as a self-preservation mechanism. It is essential to work in a “no fail” environment to help our clients build confidence and nurture positive behaviors. Dementia clients are quick to pick up on peoples’ feelings and take that cue in many situations. Our clients sense the caregiver’s calm and positive attitude and potentially tough situations are diffused before becoming a big deal. Above all, Homewatch CareGivers of Freeland treats our dementia clients with the utmost respect and honor their life experience.
