“I have had the opportunity to work with Wendy on several occasions over the past year. She has a remarkable ability to connect with people on multiple levels. Wendy's enthusiasm and depth of compassion make her the only choice for family assistance and resident referrals. I have watched Wendy help a group of people instantaneously with her infectious optimism! There is no limit to her talents and no limit to her kindness.” October 14, 2011

Do you know the difference between home care and home HEALTH care? Quite a few people think that they are the
same thing. But, they are
different. We at Homewatch CareGivers of
Haddon Township/Westmont, provide our clients with home care. Which means that we assist our clients with
activities of daily living. This
includes; assistance with personal care and hygiene, light housekeeping,
laundry, meal preparation, linen changes, medication reminders, errands,
transportation, and other activities that will help you to stay safely and
independently in your home. This is
considered “custodial care” and is rarely covered by insurance, which means
that these services are normally paid for privately by the client or the
client’s family.Home health care is generally provided when the client requires help
considered to be a “skilled need.” Some
examples of skilled needs are; they need care by a nurse, require wound care,
they could be receiving Physical Therapy/Occupational Therapy or Speech
Therapy. Home health care visits are
generally covered by insurance.
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.
