Homewatch CareGivers has been providing non-medical home care for over 30 years. We have been in Salt Lake City, Provo, West Jordan, Orem, Sandy, Ogden and other Utah communities for more than 10 years.

A written, customized care plan is developed during a free in-home needs assessment consultation with the client and family members, and the plan will be frequently updated as changes occur.

Homewatch CareGivers has staff on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to serve our clients’ needs. We are available any time of day for any emergencies that may occur.

We closely supervise our caregivers and stay in constant contact with our clients and their families to receive feedback on the quality of the care being provided. Our caregivers also maintain daily charting to ensure all care provided in the care plan is being performed. Homewatch CareGivers is proud to exceed industry requirements by providing non-scheduled supervisory visits to clients’ homes during the times that caregivers are scheduled for care.

We have a full-time director of nursing as well as many part-time RNs who regularly visit our clients. All care plans are completed and approved by an RN. We are fully staffed to meet any need that a client may have.

Our agency provides a written document to each of our clients that states the rights and responsibilities of the client, and explains the company’s privacy policy and code of ethics. We maintain strict client confidentiality and will not discuss our client’s case with anyone without first getting the client’s permission. All of our client communications are HIPPA compliant.

We make sure to triple-screen our caregiver employees carefully and thoroughly, including the use of reference checks, checking driving records and conducting criminal background investigations.

Our home care agency mandates ongoing training of our caregiver employees. We have a training center in each of our offices to ensure that every caregiver understands how to use the medical our clients require. We also utilize an accredited home care curriculum, where they are trained in specific disease processes and caregiving techniques. They must obtain continuing education units every year by passing courses and attending in-service training.

Homewatch CareGivers manages all payroll and employee related matters and adheres to state and federal guidelines in its employment practices, such as withholding appropriate taxes and providing Workers’ Compensation, health insurance and other benefits. We do not use independent contractors to provide home care.
