Care for Degenerative Disorders

Homewatch CareGivers of Asheville have extensive experience helping clients with degenerative disorders including Parkinson's disease, ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease), Huntington's Disease, multiple sclerosis, PSP (Pleural Supranuclear Palsy) and others. Clients receive initial assessment and regular overview from our registered nurse who also orients and supervises the agency caregivers assigned to these cases which require care for degenerative disorders.

Prior to starting our support, all staff are given formal education and specialized training through our accredited university on healthcare to fully understand the disorder and how to provide the best care possible as the disease progresses.

We understand how important the bond of trust must be between client and caregiver, and this is especially important when someone suffers from a degenerative illness. At Homewatch CareGivers we commit to maintaining caregiver stability in sensitive cases like these. Call us today at (828) 676-1585 to learn how we can help your loved one to maintain the highest quality of life possible during  this difficult time.

ALS or Lou Gehrig's Disease leads to muscle weakening and affects one’s ability to control voluntary movements of the muscles including those that control breathing. As a person progressively loses their ability to function independently, they will require additional care in the home. Our caregivers can assist with mobility and transfers, plan and prepare special diets to facilitate good nutrition, and offer emotional support allowing the client enough time to communicate, always being sensitive to the preservation of the client’s dignity.
Parkinson’s disease gradually affects the nervous system to the point where the affected person will need help with ambulation, daily chores, personal grooming, and more. Our caregivers have specialized training to help if your loved one experiences cognitive symptoms associated with Parkinson’s disease. We are here to support the family caregivers who may not be able to manage all of the care for all Parkinson’s symptoms.
The symptoms of multiple sclerosis vary by individual, but as this unpredictable and disabling illness of the central nervous system advances it disrupts the flow of information between the brain and the body. While many people with MS experience a years-long remission of the disease, others may lose the ability to walk and require additional care for daily activities.
Osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and other types of arthritis can be extremely painful and affect a person’s ability to take care of themselves. Homewatch CareGivers is here to provide in home care when you or a loved one experience a flare up of osteoarthritis symptoms or rheumatoid arthritis pain. Know when to ask for additional help so that you can continue to live a full and independent life.
