West Los Angeles Plan of Care

At Homewatch CareGivers of West Los Angeles, we believe that having a plan of care is essential to ensuring that our clients receive the care that they need and want. Our home care plans begin with a detailed assessment, developed by a nurse and enhanced with the Eden at Home principles. We’ll talk through where you are with the basics of health: eating healthy meals, getting enough to drink, taking medications accurately and on schedule, getting physical exercise, getting mental and social stimulation, and making sure those things that are simple pleasures in your day don’t get overlooked. We’ll talk about activities of daily living and whether any help is needed with bathing, dressing, grooming, feeding, toileting, and walking. We’ll discuss the household activities that keep a house running, such as grocery shopping, getting to appointments, doing dishes, sweeping and vacuuming, laundry, etc. Then we’ll produce a detailed plan of care that we’ll all use as the guidelines for what we’ll expect of the caregivers working with you. We do this free of charge when you contact us for a free assessment.
