Sarasota Plan of Care

Homewatch CareGivers of Sarasota takes great pride in the time and effort we put into understanding our client, especially their social history. Whether located in North Venice, Osprey, or Long Boat Key, we want our caregivers to focus on the person, not just the tasks they need help with. We want to make sure we know all about our clients, what they like to do, and what they cannot or do not do any longer.

For example, we had a client who was a great grandmother. Her whole family loved her cooking, and she loved cooking for them and it was a point of pride for her. But, as she aged, she found that she no longer had the energy to cook for her family. So, when our owner, Greg Wann, met her, he asked her if our caregivers could cook while she directed them. That delighted her because she was engaged in cooking again. Our caregivers also helped her write down her recipes to share with the family, as part of her legacy.
