Elder Care

We can help make aging at home possible, by running routine errands, light housekeeping, and providing a helping hand with the everyday tasks that often become more difficult for the elderly. Staying at home does not have to result in isolation and loneliness; in fact, our elderly care services often bring caring companionship, an opportunity for relationship building and sharing, humor and a sense of purpose back into the lives of our clients.

We provided 24-hour care for a client who was looking for elderly care services. She was having a hip replacement surgery and was concerned about recovering in a skilled nursing facility. Her brothers had recovered in a skilled nursing facility and had advised her against it. She had us investigate her insurance benefits. However in spite of no insurance coverage, she decided on private pay to recover in her home with one or two caregivers. She needed 24-hour care because she was unable to ambulate alone for 2 to 3 weeks after the operation. We were able to do an excellent job helping her recover well ahead of schedule because we trained our caregivers on proper support for hip replacement patients. We prepared excellent meals and transported her to numerous doctors’ visits. She was driving her own car four months ahead of schedule. We had 2 caregivers working 3 to 4 day shifts each week. This worked out well, gave the caregivers a break and introduced new energy every few days into the recovery regime.

In home care can provide meaningful companionship for people who have limited social engagement due to health problems. Studies show that feelings of loneliness can lead to depression and even dementia. With our caregiver matching, we aim to create a mutually beneficial relationship between clients and caregivers as your loved one continues to grow and learn through social interactions. We can also provide transportation to church and other outings with old friends.
A need for 24-hour care in the home may last for a few days or for many years. Continuous round-the-clock care provided by Homewatch CareGivers can maximize the time that someone has with their family, while also making them comfortable and safe. Our flexible home care service plans can make caregivers available on shifts that cover day and night for all kinds of needs—specialized personal care related to immobility, toileting, meal preparation, and support through the end of life and grief process.
Homewatch CareGivers specializes in elder care for people who need assistance with activities of daily living such as bathing, grooming, and meal preparation. Our caregivers are trained and educated to address the unique interests and needs of each person that they spend time with, whether they are with them for a couple of hours a day or 24 hours a day. We aim to engage our clients with meaningful experiences that will enrich their lives, while giving their family peace of mind that they are well cared for with us.
When we come into the home of an elder, we start by talking to them about their current abilities, needs, and preferences, and then we are able to craft a care plan to address this individual. In home elder care is about making sure that each person is able to continue living independently and safely for as long as they are able and choose this for themselves. Our caregivers are matched with each client so that they can also be true companions who reduce any feelings of loneliness, helplessness, and boredom.
Maintaining good health is part of preventative care, which may be the difference between staying at home and going to the hospital. For those who are recovering from a hospital stay, our caregivers can help with sticking to a physical therapy regimen, giving reminders about properly taking medications, and reviewing potential falls hazards in the home in order to reduce the possibility of a hospital readmission.
