At Homewatch CareGivers serving Northampton and Hampshire
County, our office staff is the first introduction for potential client
inquiries. It can be confusing when
people are first researching home care to understand the difference between
home health care and home care services.We understand that many of these inquiries are for families
who for the first time are seeking information pertaining to their loved one’s
situation. At Homewatch CareGivers, we
educate people that our services include personal care and homemaking. The care is paid for from out of pocket, or
private pay, which can include long term care insurance. Conversely, the home health care services are
skilled nursing, including physical, occupational and speech therapy. This is paid for by Medicare.

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.
