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.

The number of our clients with neuro-degenerative
diseases continues to grow along with the need for care for degenerative disorders in Grand Rapids. We provide care for a variety of disorders,
including ALS, Parkinson’s disease, Multiple Sclerosis (MS), and arthritis.
Homewatch CareGivers of Grand
Rapids is an avid supporter of research to help find cures for these diseases.
With the Van Andel Institute in our backyard, we are proud to support frontline
research for these diseases through tribute donations, research funding, and
community events. The
Van Andel Institute is one of the few research organizations
that contributes 100 percent of received donations to research.
Some of our caregivers have medical backgrounds and have worked in local care
facilities, so they are particularly well-versed in degenerative
diseases. All of our caregivers who have been with us more than a year are specifically trained to care for clients whose degenerative
diseases provide unique challenges and situations. Each client’s
needs are different and our customized care plans reflect these needs. Some of
our clients who battle these diseases desire to be very social. Our caregivers
have taken these clients to the movies and to
church, as well as to other outings they enjoy.
