We feel so fortunate and blessed to know you and to thank you for all you have done for our family. God Bless you always, and thank you for the privilege of knowing that you and Jessica were always there to help in any emergency situation.

No matter what, we make sure that we have a special
team of caregivers that work with a specific client to ensure the continuity of
care. We work hard to make sure that our care
team is consistent for each client from Potomac through Burke, because that's
the Homewatch CareGivers of Fairfax standard.
At Homewatch Caregivers of Fairfax and Falls Church we are not just
caring for a client’s physical needs, we are there for the clients emotional needs
as well. The three most common emotions
that elderly deal with are loneliness, helplessness and boredom. Our
Caregivers are trained to interact with the client and include them in decisions
about what they want to do while the care giver is there, involving them in
the care decision. That includes giving
choices on which outfit they would like to wear to go on special outing. Or helping with putting the grocery list
together, getting their input on what they would like to eat. If able, helping with preparing their
meal and engaging them in conversations about their
lives. Having the Client teach the
caregiver how to knit, play a card game cook a family recipe helps bring purpose. We feel strongly about finding out what interests the client and
places they would like to go to.
We help the client improve his or her
quality of life. So instead of
loneliness they have companionship, instead of feeling helplessness they are
active participants in their life and instead of boredom they have activities to
look forward to.
Our caregivers receive ongoing training and
education in order to provide the best care we can and to help the client have
as active life as possible.
