Care Available 24 Hours a Day, 7 Days a Week.
Reliable, outstanding, compassionate help for my aging parents. Homewatch is a tremendous comfort... especially when I am hundreds of miles away.
Homewatch Caregivers are people who have a desire to assist our loved ones.
At my initial meeting with Homewatch Caregivers, they promised to "enrich" my parents' lives and one year later, they have yet to fail me... or them! They are an absolutely fabulous group of committed, capable, and fabulous caregivers!

It helps them understand the language that the physical therapist is using. Also, our caregivers can help remind our clients of the exercises they need to be performing; advising family members of progress; and being directly supportive to our clients.
Our caregivers can even offer useful information to the physical therapist. Physical therapists may only be in the home for an hour or two, which doesn't often give them the insight into our clients that our caregivers have. They understand the personality and the day-to-day needs of our clients, since they are with them for longer periods.
