The Triad Greensboro, Winston Salem, High Point and Kernersville

Care for Degenerative Disorders

Homewatch CareGivers of Winston Salem and Greensboro, a national company with 30 years of proven success, now has more than 100 employees who serve the Piedmont Triad. Our caregivers provide comprehensive care for degenerative disorders, such as ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) or Multiple Sclerosis. All our caregivers have certified nurse assistant credentials. Registered nurses, rather than sales or marketing staff, visit potential clients and families to provide an initial assessment and customize a home care plan.

“We are seriously committed to selecting our caregivers and their professional development and education once they are a part of our team. First of all, we are partners with area educational institutions to identify highly-qualified nursing students and potential caregivers. We conduct extensive background and security checks; we pay competitive wages and offer a bonus structure; we offer online educational opportunities and advanced training. Our efforts pay off in your home----when caring for your loved one,” says President, Marti Dizon.

ALS or Lou Gehrig's Disease leads to muscle weakening and affects one’s ability to control voluntary movements of the muscles including those that control breathing. As a person progressively loses their ability to function independently, they will require additional care in the home. Our caregivers can assist with mobility and transfers, plan and prepare special diets to facilitate good nutrition, and offer emotional support allowing the client enough time to communicate, always being sensitive to the preservation of the client’s dignity.
Parkinson’s disease gradually affects the nervous system to the point where the affected person will need help with ambulation, daily chores, personal grooming, and more. Our caregivers have specialized training to help if your loved one experiences cognitive symptoms associated with Parkinson’s disease. We are here to support the family caregivers who may not be able to manage all of the care for all Parkinson’s symptoms.
The symptoms of multiple sclerosis vary by individual, but as this unpredictable and disabling illness of the central nervous system advances it disrupts the flow of information between the brain and the body. While many people with MS experience a years-long remission of the disease, others may lose the ability to walk and require additional care for daily activities.
Osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and other types of arthritis can be extremely painful and affect a person’s ability to take care of themselves. Homewatch CareGivers is here to provide in home care when you or a loved one experience a flare up of osteoarthritis symptoms or rheumatoid arthritis pain. Know when to ask for additional help so that you can continue to live a full and independent life.
