Sterling Reston, Great Falls, Centreville and Loudoun County

Every one of our clients has a plan of care written and approved by a Registered Nurse. Your loved one’s plan of care will take into account his or her specific needs and will be written in collaboration with the entire family. The plan of care provides specific instructions for the caregiver and helps to assure that everyone understands the specific care your loved one needs.

The plan of care is a living document that can change as the client’s needs change. It addresses not only the client’s physical needs, but also the client’s likes and favorite pastimes. Once the plan is agreed, the Homewatch CareGivers of Loudoun team matches the right caregiver to the client.

Each of our clients has a Client Notebook kept at home that contains the plan of care and detailed records of the care received.  The care we provide and the client’s condition are well documented in the client book, providing a great resource for the family and the client’s physician.
