About Homewatch CareGivers in Castro Valley - After building professional careers in the financial services industry, spouses Lucia and Raul were looking for opportunities to start a different kind of career. One that will not only allow them to continue to be actively engaged even after retiring from the corporate world, but will also give them the opportunity to provide meaningful and needed services to the “Baby Boomer” population in their community.
Lucia and Raul grew up in large, close-knit families and were raised to respect and to take care of their elders. Both also had the experience of caring for their aging parents in-home and from a distance. They especially experienced the challenges of working full-time, taking care of their own children, and ensuring that their parents had the proper care and attention they needed to maintain quality of life in their golden years.
Raul’s parents were both stricken with cancer during their later years. His mother in particular was a breast cancer patient for more than 20 years and required assistance during and after hospital stays and chemotherapy sessions. His father also underwent a few major surgeries for his prostate cancer and aortic aneurysm. There were times when both required close attention and care at the same time.
Lucia’s parents also required in-home care as her father had to undergo dialysis treatments and her mother suffered from Alzheimer’s disease during her last few years.
Because of their first-hand experience caring for their parents, Lucia and Raul strongly believe that quality of life for the elderly and permanently or temporarily disabled are much better for those who can receive quality care at their own homes. This is why they decided to open Homewatch CareGivers at the Heart of the Bay to serve the care needs of people in the Castro Valley, Hayward, San Lorenzo and San Leandro areas.
Homewatch CareGivers has been providing in-home care for over 30 year. Their mission is to ensure that you or your loved one receives the utmost personal care with compassion and empathy. Every caregiver is an employee who is bonded and insured, and they are well-trained and experienced. No caregiver will be sent out on a care assignment unless Lucia and Raul themselves would feel comfortable having them care for their loved ones.
