"They [Mom and Dad] are doing better now! I really appreciate all you did and when I need a caregiver again, I will call!"

The question we hear from many prospective clients in
Evansville is, “What do you mean non-skilled?” There can be a lot of confusion
between home care and home health care. What we tell people is that we can’t do
anything that involves medical treatment. For example, we can’t give medicines
but we can give medication reminders or take someone to their appointment with
a health care provider. Also people do not realize that we can provide our
services for as much or as little time as is needed.Sometimes our services do overlap with home health care, and
it’s a win-win. One of our clients is a man in his 60s who is living with
diabetes and before the home health nurse comes in once a week, our caregiver
comes and gets him bathed, dressed, and ready for his dialysis treatment. While
the home health nurse is there, the caregiver can leave to run a few errands
for the client.
After a doctor’s visit or stay in the hospital, skilled care in the home is arranged in order to get you or a loved one back on your feet. Home healthcare includes:
Home care is about sustaining and maintaining your loved one’s quality of life in their home by assisting with activities of daily living:
While a skilled home healthcare professional changes your loved one’s prescriptions, an in-home caregiver helps them remember to take medications day in and day out. A home healthcare agency can change your loved one’s therapy if it’s not working, and an in-home caregiver is there to encourage them to accomplish those therapies. At Homewatch CareGivers' our person-directed approach to caregiving helps an individual to the best of their current abilities so that they continue to feel empowered and fulfilled.
