Personalized Approach to Home Care

Learn why Homewatch CareGivers are the preferred homecare providers.

As aging and changing health circumstances often warrant a need for additional care, many prefer the familiarity and comfort of their own home. At Homewatch CareGivers, each client is supported by a Care Team consisting of designated caregivers, a nurse, and a social worker who are all committed to elevating the client’s quality of life. HWCG understands that welcoming a stranger into the home can be overwhelming and intimidating, and they strive to smoothen this transition by introducing caring professionals who are thoroughly trained in providing high-quality care as well as meaningful companionship.

HWCG’s mission is to provide superior quality home care services which preserve the client’s dignity, independence, and safety. Clients are paired with caregivers who have complementary personalities and skill sets that allow them to provide adequate support. Whether in-home care is needed due to injury, illness, medical procedure, or the inevitable challenges of aging, each member of the caregiving team will go above and beyond to support the client and empower them in this new transition.

Clients vary in age and needs. While many are senior citizens, caregivers are trained to aid any clients 21+ who need assistance. Providers specialize in areas such as eldercare, hospital discharge, disability, and dementia care. While responsibilities of the caregiver vary based on the client’s needs, they typically assist in daily living activities like dressing, grooming, and meal preparation, as well as services such as laundry/light housekeeping, meal planning/preparation, transportation, and companionship. While caregivers are often hired to assist clients in their own homes, they also accompany clients on outings, in medical settings, or at residential facilities, for anywhere from a few hours to a few months at a time.

HWCG emphasizes the importance of finding a caregiver that is the right match for the individual in need. “The HWCG team is the eyes and ears in the home”, says Randi Brokman, MSW, Director of Community Outreach and Client Care. With HWCG, clients and family members are given peace of mind that those working with the client are all trusted and compassionate professionals. While legal licensing and vetting requirements are enforced, additional extensive training for staff is provided to ensure exemplary care. Thorough background checks are also administered annually, and it is with great confidence that the team caring for the client is fully qualified to do so.

When choosing HWCG, “you’re not just hiring a caregiver, you’re hiring a care team,” says Michael Mitchell, Chief Operating Officer. HWCG prides itself on the longevity of its staff, as each of its staff members and caregivers have been with the company for multiple years, and some even multiple decades. Consistency remains a priority for both the benefit of each staff member and client at HWCG, and the best interest of personnel at all levels is always considered.

Homewatch CareGivers, located in South Orange, has been serving Essex, Union and Morris counties for 14+ years.
