Care Available 24 Hours a Day, 7 Days a Week.
I could not get along without Homewatch CareGivers. Except for the aides who come every day, I don’t really see anybody anymore. All my friends are gone to greener pastures. They watch out for me. We get along very well. They are like family. I think it is a wonderful service. I would not have any hesitation to recommend Homewatch to anybody, and I am not getting paid to say that.

Avoiding hospital readmission is everyone’s goal. Without an
action plan in place for post-hospitalization care, discharge plans may not be
followed. Homewatch CareGivers of Grand Rapids is prepared to help with after surgery care. Learning
what a client’s needs are and taking the next steps to ensure a client gets the
best care is a priority.
For example, an 80-year-old wife may not give consideration to how
she will help her husband with his recovery once they return from his hospital
stay. Small details, such as how to take
her husband to the bathroom, once they return home, become big challenges. The attempts to move her husband by herself
will likely take much of her strength and energy, leading to exhaustion or
possible injury. If family caregivers don’t get help for
themselves, then they, too, may also become ill or injured.
Having a plan in place to care for the caregiver is critical. It’s
best to plan for help upfront so you are able to provide the best care possible
for your loved one.
