I am a past client of this provider

The time between when I first got word that my mom would be discharged from rehab and when she actually moved in with me was just 9 days. She needed a lot of care and I was very worried that I would not know how to properly care for her. I needed help. The first best thing about finding Homewatch Caregivers was how they helped me to relax and be assured that they could provide anything and everything that I might need. And, they did! From day one I had a trained caregiver to be here with me to show me how to do everything. Once I learned, I found that I could do a lot more on my own than I thought. We only used Homewatch Caregivers for that first week (everyday) that my mom was here because that is all I found I needed at the time. Now, I know they are available in the future should I need them. I really loved how there was zero pressure from anyone at Homewatch Caregiver for me to continue to use their services once I had found that I didn't need them. They are like a good friend you can call who will be right there to help in whatever way you need.

I just recently needed someone to come care for Mom...she has dementia. I called this agency and Dr Al and his lovely wife Pat came to our home to discuss the specifics Mom required and costs. I was immediately set up with VERY qualified ladies that came and did a great job with Mom. My mother was very comfortable with all the ladies they sent and I finally had peace of mind. I would use them again in a heartbeat. I found their high standards for hiring to be top notch. When you have family members needing care, THIS IS WHO TO CALL FIRST. They are very reasonable in rates and extremely dedicated to matching the proper caregiver to patient needs and personality. The people at this agency TRULY understand the stress this can bring to a family and do all they can to alleviate that from your life. I really am glad to have found them.

Once in a very great while we are blessed with a family that touch each and everyone's hearts and make us feel passionate about the mission, vision and values of Homewatch CareGivers. This is such a family and we will love to care for them any time we are called. Pat Herbert, Owner

Everyone was friendly and professional. They have a system of oversight for their employees. My caregiver, Cletus, is supportive and tolerant of my personality quirks. Homewatch was a big improvement over the independent caregiver I had before.

Our experience with Homewatch CareGivers exceeded all expectations and needs. They did a wonderful job of accessing our specific needs and tailoring their support accordingly. All staff we worked with were professional and caring. Each was extremely patient with our needs and emotions. This can be a challenge when dealing with adult and elder care.

When things fell apart physically for our Mother, they were right there with support, care and prayers. They talked us through those things we might expect given her condition and discussed available options. These discussions took place with care and compassion.

I am pleased to recommend Homewatch CareGivers to those who find themselves in need of adult homecare.

Provider Response

This family was both a rewarding and personally moving experience for all members of our agency to participate and enjoy the love in which exist for caring for Mother. Needless to say, we stand ready and willing to assist in meeting their needs, should ever the need arise. Pat Herbert, Owner

We used Homewatch with my father who had become deaf and weak when recovering from meningitis and subdural hematoma evacuations. They are a very professional, caring group to work with. Great attention was given to my father and if any problems or special requests arose, they were dealt with in a timely manner without sacrificing care. Even during inclement weather, the caregivers did everything in their power to be there for us. One even walked a couple of miles in the snow to make a shift. Another drove in bad conditions to make it in the middle of the night and relieve me. What they did for us was a blessing!

Provider Response

Working with this family was 100% our pleasure. Our caregivers and the family members developed a very special bond and even to this day they often ask how this past client is doing. Special clients like you make our work not our jobs, but our passion!!

While recovering from an accident, I realized that I needed extra assistance: running errands, getting to doctor's appointments, etc. The perfect solution was Homewatch Care Givers. From the very first phone call, the staff treated me as a valued client. The caregivers were prompt, very courteous and professional, and most of all, treated me with dignity and respect.

Provider Response

We are pleased to learn that our past client was pleased with our services. My wife and firmly believe that our caregivers are the heart of our business and we appreciate the outstanding service that they provide our clients each and every day.

I ABSOLUTELY love Homewatch CareGivers! They were the epitome of professionalism and loving care from my initial call! I was very impressed when after reviewing my father's benefits they called me back to advise that they had a sister company that could better suit my father's needs (meaning less/no money for them and less money out of pocket for my family). However, because of their commitment to meeting the needs of their clients they provided me with the info that was best suitable for our needs even if that meant not their company! I would recommend them to anyone in need on home care assistance! I can concur that they are LEADING COMPANY in this business!

The caregivers were very hands and they seem to take an interest in the whole family. We felt comfortable having them in our home and take care of my husband. It was a good experience.

We are very pleased with the care my mother is receiving. In particular, the professionalism of the staff, concern for the client, and follow-up, has given our family a true feeling of security and trust. As we continue on this "Alzheimer's journey", it is comforting to know that HWCG will be a vital team member, supporting us along the way.

Homewatch CareGivers is wonderful! When we found out we needed care, it was really sudden because dad had fallen and he couldn't be home alone. He was a former victim of Elder Exploitation by a former caregiver, and we were leery of having strangers come in our house. With Homewatch CareGivers, they have given us a reassuring, peace of mind state. They came to the house, checked things out, asked questions, and are constantly getting us involved with dad's care but keeping thorough notes on what they're doing. They have informed me on things I didn't even know! Dad is an old, grumpy old man, who thinks he knows everything, but he has really taking a liking to the caregivers. Ashley, his caregiver, plays scrabble with him all the time. It was really cute when she came in the house the other day and announced that she had downloaded the Scrabble App on her phone. That really showed us that she went over and beyond to provide the best care for dad. We have had the most dependable, respectful, caring, and concern care from Homewatch CareGivers.

Homewatch CareGivers (Huntsville) has been taking care of mom, and we are extremely pleased with all the ladies who are her caregiver. Jessica, the social worker, does an outstanding job at checking on mom as well. Mom is in physical therapy right now, and Jessica checks on her to make sure everything is going well. Anytime I call, I get an immediate response from either Dr. Herbert or Jessica. It feels good to know that at anytime, we can trust on them to take care of mom. I feel like they are a part of our family.
