We Support an Effective, Coordinated Continuum of Care
We aim to earn your trust and have a long-term relationship with you and
those you provide care to.
We keep care providers informed on status updates that are critical to
overall care and avoiding complications - everything from changes in mental
or physical function, to identification of red flags, to changes in family
dynamics, and more. Communication from care providers is in turn equally
valuable so we can make timely and appropriate adjustments to the plan
of care. When it comes to communication, we are in this together to support
an individual’s well-being and health outcomes.
We ensure patients can get to and are prepared for procedures and appointments,
as well as takes notes during, and help them run errands, such as to the
pharmacy, which are particularly important to adherence when patients
should not be driving, and no family caregiver is available.
We support patients in staying compliant to dietary restrictions and nutritional
goals through shopping and meal preparation of healthy options, while
honoring cultural traditions.
To improve adherence, our caregivers provide medication reminders based
on a doctor's prescription, including when to take them, how to take them,
and why they are taking them. Additionally, family members and other care
providers can be notified of any missed dosages and possible side-effects.
To help avoid injury and hospitalization, our trained caregivers address
risks associated with memory impairments, such as wandering from home
or leaving the stove on, as well as with impaired functional status, such
as falls, particularly associated with bathing and transfers.
By helping patients stay engaged in their lives, we help them stay engaged
in their care.
We can help patients prepare for and get connected to telehealth appointments
with care providers. We can answer questions and take notes for the individual
and family, as well as provide information to providers in advance. We
also help the person stay connected with their friends and family to reduce
loneliness, which data has shown has a significant impact on health outcomes.
When someone plans to transition from home to a care community, but the
move is delayed, we will partner with the community to help keep those
individuals invested in the community. We can provide support by caring
for the individual in their current home and can stay with them through
the move as they settle in and become residents at the community. We will
work to introduce them to the new environment and encourage them to engage
in meaningful activities and outings with the community staff and residents
who already live there to help them become familiar with the day-to-day
life so when it is time to move in, they are excited and fully engaged.
The Homewatch CareGivers approach to care helps avoid the setbacks that
can lead to expensive and difficult readmissions to the healthcare system.
As a result, we achieve the aim of reducing costs and improving outcomes
while patients can remain in their homes.
It all starts with working together. Let's start, today.
