Asheville Elder Care

All of us at Homewatch CareGivers of Asheville are experts in the support and care of our community's elders. We understand the aging process and how it affects physiological and emotional needs and tailor our elder care to each client. We work closely with local council on aging offices, meals on wheels and other senior service providers to secure whatever is needed to help our clients remain safe and healthy at home. But we go much further than this.

At Asheville home care, we train our staff to provide truly holistic care for our clients. We refer to this as "Giving our clients P.O.S.I.E.S." P = Physiological needs including safe transfers and ambulation, preparing brain and heart healthy meals, staying hydrated, keeping the home clean and hygienic, providing transportation to medical appointments, shopping and running errands, assisting with self medication and with any hands on personal care that may be required. O = Occupational or Vocational hobbies or personal passions. S = Sociological Needs including companionship, social outings, games or other activities to prevent loneliness. I = Intellectual Stimulation which includes challenging games, conversation or puzzles to keep our brains sharp. E = Emotional Needs. Caregivers are trained to listen empathically to our clients' concerns and to give them compassionate support at all times. S = Spiritual Needs. Often our clients have recently lost a loved one or as they approach their golden years, they often need to clarify their spiritual feelings. Having someone who is trusting and who can listen without judgment can be critically important to allay fear and prevent the onset of depression.

In home care can provide meaningful companionship for people who have limited social engagement due to health problems. Studies show that feelings of loneliness can lead to depression and even dementia. With our caregiver matching, we aim to create a mutually beneficial relationship between clients and caregivers as your loved one continues to grow and learn through social interactions. We can also provide transportation to church and other outings with old friends.
A need for 24-hour care in the home may last for a few days or for many years. Continuous round-the-clock care provided by Homewatch CareGivers can maximize the time that someone has with their family, while also making them comfortable and safe. Our flexible home care service plans can make caregivers available on shifts that cover day and night for all kinds of needs—specialized personal care related to immobility, toileting, meal preparation, and support through the end of life and grief process.
Homewatch CareGivers specializes in elder care for people who need assistance with activities of daily living such as bathing, grooming, and meal preparation. Our caregivers are trained and educated to address the unique interests and needs of each person that they spend time with, whether they are with them for a couple of hours a day or 24 hours a day. We aim to engage our clients with meaningful experiences that will enrich their lives, while giving their family peace of mind that they are well cared for with us.
When we come into the home of an elder, we start by talking to them about their current abilities, needs, and preferences, and then we are able to craft a care plan to address this individual. In home elder care is about making sure that each person is able to continue living independently and safely for as long as they are able and choose this for themselves. Our caregivers are matched with each client so that they can also be true companions who reduce any feelings of loneliness, helplessness, and boredom.
Maintaining good health is part of preventative care, which may be the difference between staying at home and going to the hospital. For those who are recovering from a hospital stay, our caregivers can help with sticking to a physical therapy regimen, giving reminders about properly taking medications, and reviewing potential falls hazards in the home in order to reduce the possibility of a hospital readmission.
