what is home care

The staff at Homewatch CareGivers provides a variety of home care services, including senior care, after surgery care & more. Home care and home health care in Huntington Beach are two different services. Home care is non-medical customized personal help provided within the home so people can remain in familiar and comfortable surroundings. Typical aid includes helping someone move about the house getting people out of bed, toileted, and showered. If they can’t get dressed then we will help them look great, provide a nutritious meal and keep the home clean. We also provide socialization and transportation to appointments. Upon return we can pick up prescriptions at the pharmacy and then provide medication reminders for those that need it. Caregivers are the extra set of eyes that will be on your loved one and give family members the reassurance needed when they are not physically there.

Home Care

Home care is about sustaining and maintaining your loved one’s quality of life in their home by assisting with activities of daily living:

home care may include:
  • Help with personal grooming like bathing or getting dressed
  • Help with moving around and getting in and out of bed or the shower
  • Medication reminders

How do home care and home healthcare work together?

While a skilled home healthcare professional changes your loved one’s prescriptions, an in-home caregiver helps them remember to take medications day in and day out. A home healthcare agency can change your loved one’s therapy if it’s not working, and an in-home caregiver is there to encourage them to accomplish those therapies. At Homewatch CareGivers' our person-directed approach to caregiving helps an individual to the best of their current abilities so that they continue to feel empowered and fulfilled.
