Care for Degenerative Disorders in Haddon Township

The care team of Homewatch CareGivers of Westmont/Haddon Township has worked with many clients over the years that are or have been affected with degenerative disorders such as Parkinson’s, ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease), MS (Multiple Sclerosis) and Lewy Body diseases.  Our nurses and caregivers are trained and knowledgeable about these degenerative diseases, how they affect our client’s lives and how we can help our clients live successfully with these afflictions.

We know that life with these degenerative disorders can be challenging from performing simple daily tasks, managing meal and transportation, to handling personal hygiene, and dealing with feelings of frustration, loneliness and boredom.  We can help!  Let our professional care team compose a personalized care plan for you to help you handle your degenerative disorder and continue to be safe and independent in your home.  

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.
