Seattle Plan of Care

There is no cookie cutter plan of care and that’s why Homewatch CareGivers of Western WA area work with you to a develop a plan of care based on the unique preferences and needs.

For example, one of our clients, living with dementia, loves the outdoors. We were able to match him with a male caregiver who shares the client’s passion for fishing. On any given day, when the weather permits, you can find the two of them at the waterfront together, with their lines in the water and coffee cups in hand.

We also are able to work closely with families. For example, we have a 92 year-old client who has been with us since 2010. She and her family are an outstanding example of how to work in tandem with us. Our caregiver team has made it possible for her to remain independent in her own home with 24-hour care. The caregivers keep her engaged, active, and socializing. We value the family’s ongoing support - adding extra protection in some areas of the home, providing funds for their mother to have special outings, and encouraging social visits. The sense of fulfillment the caregiver feels with this kind of support validates their purpose in caregiving.
