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.

At Homewatch CareGivers of
Grand Rapids, all of our caregivers are trained through Homewatch CareGivers University. There are two levels of training that assure us that all caregivers have consistent
training, which includes a major focus on clients with dementia and
Alzheimer’s so that we can provide dementia care in our community.
We also offer free training to
client families through Homewatch CareGivers University, to help them understand the
symptoms and stages of progression for neurodegenerative diseases.
Our caregivers always seek to
find ways to connect on a personal level with our Alzheimer's and dementia
clients, which is a proven method to ensure a positive care experience. For example, one of our clients loves to dance,
so when our caregiver visits, she brings music and they dance each day they are
Our team knows that caring for those
suffering with dementia requires a different perspective. Like one of our
clients told us: “Dementia requires a caregiver with
a special understanding of the disease. Everyone Homewatch has sent to us has understood the situation.”
