Care Available 24 Hours a Day, 7 Days a Week.
I have a veteran receiving services through Homewatch Caregivers. He said they have been wonderful; nice as can be and they will do anything I ask them. I told him I would pass it on to the owners and he said, “Which one?” He has met both owners because they have personally come out to his home. I feel that this patient probably does not need skilled home health because of the attention he has been given. Not the first time I have heard good things about this agency.

A short time ago, our office in Boise was caring for a 60-plus-year-old man who lived in a small apartment. Elder care is one of the services we provide. He appeared to be depressed, was not eating properly and we became concerned about his well-being. The apartment was small and stacked with boxes and personal items throughout with the exception of a small pathway allowing movement to the rooms.
After providing care for this client for almost one month, our team began discussing what Homewatch CareGivers could do to help to help him improve his quality of life.
After some research and conversations with the family, we found an affordable independent living community that was a good fit for our client. Our office staff went to his apartment on a Saturday, helped moved his key personal belongings to the Independent Living Community and because of the meals and housekeeping provided by the community, he was able to reduce the amount of care with Homewatch CareGivers from 6+ hours per day (180 per month) down to 1 hour per day.
Although this reduced the amount of business Homewatch CareGivers obtained, our client's health improved so dramatically, that he was getting out of his new apartment on a regular basis, and became involved with those around him.
Our owner, Eric Wallentine, visited our client a couple weeks after his big move and was amazed at the difference in not only his outward appearance, but his mood and responsiveness was like night and day.
Caring for our clients is a passion. We have a full-time care manager (LSW) on staff (Karen Kouba) who takes our care to the next level by finding solutions to help our clients not only receive care, but thrive.
