Home Care in Oakland, CA
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.
Home Care Service Plans
We offer an initial evaluation and create a customized home care service plan designed around the unique preferences and needs of your family. Our flexible plans address physical and emotional well-being.
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.
The in home caregiving team builds the care plan based upon the client and family’s needs and wants; the hours and days requested will be accommodated to meet your specific scheduling needs. Our elder care services provide the extra help with meal planning and preparation to help you maintain a healthy and independent lifestyle. Elderly care is provided round-the-clock by regularly scheduled caregivers and home care aides. We specialize in short and long term elderly care for your loved one with regularly scheduled caregivers who are our trained, committed employees. Working together in shifts, we are able to provide a continuous elderly care solution for your loved one’s safety and security.
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.
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.
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.
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.
