There are so many kinds of care that it can be a challenge to understand the differences between them in Thousand Oaks. We are often asked, “What is home care?” The shortest answer is that we are non-medical, but that isn't complete. Home care and home health care are sometimes thought of as the same thing, and while we do partner together, we provide separate services. Home health care covers the clinical side of our client's needs; they might be in the home one to two hours per week and do things like wound care, injections, and physical therapy. Home care assists with the daily living activities, or, as we like to think about it, we go into people's homes and pamper them. We provide services such as transportation, companionship, bathing assistance, meal planning and we can be there as much as 24 hours.
There is no one-size-fits-all plan of care and that’s why Homewatch CareGivers creates a customized plan of care based on the unique preferences and needs of each client. Our home care service plans are designed to address current abilities and promote physical and emotional well-being. From companionship services that can help to alleviate loneliness to hands-on care with personal care, our caregivers make sure that a client lives each day fully.
