Elder Care Services in Overland Park, Leawood and Prairie Village
The desire to stay in your own home as you age is one shared by many older Americans. Fully 9 in 10 older Americans hope to age in their own homes, reflecting the deep desire to spend their lives in a place that’s familiar to them. As the elderly advance in age however, there comes a time when it isn’t always possible to keep up with the basic tasks of life.
At Homewatch CareGivers Overland Park, we believe that rather than simply being the extra pair of hands an aging person needs, caregiving should be about enhancing the aging experience. Our company provides tailor-made support to every client, so that they can enjoy life to the fullest extent.
When arthritis or other conditions make it hard to prepare a warm, nutritious meal, it can detract from quality of life. The solution for many people who find certain tasks more difficult is to bring in a professional who understands these problems, and can provide help with those tasks, while not interfering with the joys in life.
Home care services can provide help in a wide variety of tasks, including:
- Personal hygiene
- Meal prep and planning
- Driving to appointments
- Household chores

Comprehensive Home Care Options
Caregiving needs may vary depending on the needs and ability of the person who wants to age in place. Home care can extend to full-time care and help in case of falls, to coming in just a few times a week to offer support.
This flexible arrangement helps those in need of care the freedom of choice in how much, or how little, help they want as part of their life. Home care hours can be adjusted as time goes on, so if more care is needed at a later date, it can be provided.
Dedicated and Reliable Caretakers

They are passionate about providing the care needed for their clients and are some of the most dedicated and reliable caregivers available. Caregivers are carefully matched to their clients so that their personalities agree with each other, helping them form lasting bonds during their time together.
One of the biggest problems older people face as they age is loneliness. A busy life once full of children and work can disappear as a person ages and their children become busy and unable to visit. Home caregivers can not only help with the dishes and a drive to a medical appointment, but also provide critical companionship that eases loneliness and improves quality of life.
Stay Home for Longer
Falls, memory lapses, and other aging related issues can make living at home more difficult. Rather than going against an elderly person’s wishes and placing them in a home, having a caregiver come to them can be the solution that helps everyone.
If you worry about your aging loved one, or are worried about yourself, speaking with one of our compassionate and experienced home care representatives today can help you find the best solution. It’s normal to want to stay in the place you feel most comfortable, all that may be needed is a helping hand to make that wish come true.
