Home Care in Windsor, CO
We understand that there are many times in life when someone is in need of care for a few hours or on a regular basis for an extended time. Trained caregivers are available to provide the assistance necessary from as little as two hours to as much as 24 hours.
Types of Home Care
There are many reasons and times in life when someone might need help with daily activities—perhaps a family caregiver needs to get out of the house and a professional caregiver can come in an provide a few hours of respite care; a woman on bedrest may need an extra pair of hands around the house until her delivery date; an adult child may have relocated to another city and can’t help their elder parent with tasks around the house; a degenerative disease such as dementia may affect one’s ability to complete activities of daily living like meal preparation and daily grooming.
Elder Care: We can help make aging at home possible, by running routine errands, light housekeeping, and providing a helping hand with the everyday tasks that often become more difficult for the elderly. Staying at home does not have to result in isolation and loneliness; in fact, our elderly care services often bring caring companionship, an opportunity for relationship building and sharing, humor and a sense of purpose back into the lives of our clients.
Dementia Care: When a person lives with dementia, it makes them vulnerable. It is a disease that affects every part of their life – from when they wake up in the morning until they get into bed at night. It can continue after that – leaving them disoriented and scared if they wake up after a bad dream. People living with dementia continually deal with anxiety, depression, and often withdraw from the outside world, creating self-imposed isolation.
Dementia or Alzheimer’s can impact every moment. It can diminish a person’s senses – changing the tastes and aromas they used to enjoy. Sounds that once brought smiles and comfort evolve into just noise. Even what a person sees gets interpreted differently in the brain. What a person living with dementia or Alzheimer’s used to do easily every day now becomes insurmountable challenges. Our Alzheimer’s care finds ways to climb those mountains and provide the quality of life that not only are they used to, but that they deserve.
Homewatch CareGivers’ trained caregivers are there help maintain your loved one’s dignity and independence. We feel it’s essential to find ways to ease the emotional frustrations that come with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia-related disorders. These difficulties don’t just affect the person living with the condition, but also the entire family. Trained caregivers bring families closer together so they all can support the person living with dementia.
Because each of our clients is unique, our dementia-care program treats them uniquely. Homewatch CareGivers customizes dementia care plans for each person and our specially-trained memory care experts understand the complexity memory impairments can create in a home.
Care for Chronic Conditions: Homewatch CareGivers specializes in elder care for those with chronic health conditions with the expertise of our care coordinators and caregivers, which is achieved through on-going training and education.
We are your long term partners in care alleviating the stress caused by the unpredictable changes to your loved one diagnosed with a chronic health condition. Our elder care services help maintain a safe home environment and provide the extra help with errands and housekeeping that allow you to live as independently as possible. When mobility becomes difficult, we can properly and safely transfer our clients from bed to bathroom to living areas using whatever equipment is needed, not forgetting to get our clients outside and the importance of fresh air on emotional well-being.
Managing family caregiver burnout through respite care is an important component of caring for individuals with chronic health conditions; elder care professionals can step in to give you a much needed break. Treatment-related medications and home care regimes can be overwhelming to keep track of; many aging individuals have difficulty managing this and family members want to know that a reliable care team has a handle on these. Specific curricula for our caregivers have been developed for each chronic health condition we see regularly- diabetes, Parkinson’s Disease, stroke, ALS, heart and lung disease- to ensure that we provide care that addresses the particular needs of these clients and we understands the signs of life-threatening situations.
Care for Degenerative Disorders: Whether you or a loved one is coping with multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s, ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease), recovering from a stroke, or have been diagnosed with a form of dementia such as Lewy Body disease, Homewatch CareGivers can help them at home. A degenerative disorder can make daily tasks difficult, and personal-care teams can help with what used to be simple: bathing, getting dressed, fixing meals – making sure your loved one stays independent as they receive help with their daily activities.
The main focus of Homewatch CareGivers is safety – and specially trained and educated caregivers work at all times to make sure the home is a safe environment, continually making assessments about the risk of a fall or another factor that could be dangerous for a person with a degenerative disorder. Know that as people with degenerative disorders experience changes in their health, Homewatch CareGivers’ professionally-developed training prepares caregivers so they are ready to adapt when they need to.
After Surgery Care: When a surgery, treatment or procedure is required, getting it scheduled and working through the logistics can get involved and complicated. Day surgery services are fully customizable and completely flexible to make our clients comfortable and provide peace of mind to loved ones who worry from afar. Day surgery services include driving to the surgery, treatment or procedure, taking notes to ensure conversations with medical professionals are captured, companionship and comfort, transportation home, picking up prescriptions and medications, meal preparation, and even personal care services like assistance with bathing or dressing.
During those critical 24 hours after coming home from a procedure, surgery or treatment, there is tremendous comfort and peace of mind knowing that our trained caregivers are present. It is important that caregivers and staff are always discreet and follow guidelines to ensure privacy, but equally important, they are focused on the safety and well-being of the patient. A caring and compassionate staff want the client to have a pleasant experience, even when the day surgery, treatment or procedure leaves them uncomfortable or out of sorts; the training and skills a caregiver receives through Homewatch CareGivers University prepares them to provide safety as well as genuine companionship.
Care for All Ages: Most people today are extremely busy, and though they would like to, they cannot always stay home with their sick child, bedridden spouse or recovering father due to important commitments at work. Homewatch CareGivers offers an array of affordable services customized for people of all ages; we care for children, but we can also help elderly parents, a mentally challenged young adult, or a spouse after surgery. Complicated pregnancies can prove challenging for a first pregnancy, when it occurs with a second or third child there is a dramatic increase in the need for trained and reliable helping hands. The same flexible home care service you’ve grown to trust in elder care is available for people of all ages dealing with any type of health care or life situation.
Providing relief for you and your family with knowledgeable caregivers is our top priority; the last thing those with a myriad of responsibilities needs is to shoulder a care situation alone, without the support of a caregiving team. Too many of us don’t know where to turn when a loved one needs assistance and we are unprepared, whether this is due to a last minute change in condition, schedule or if the regular care plan falls through. We are ready when you are in a crunch, with trained caregiver employees who are fully background checked, bonded and insured. The personalities of the caregiver and the client are a critical component of the match; we go to great lengths to make sure the pairing will succeed.
