May 8, 2014 // Franchising.com // GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo. – Homewatch CareGivers, a premier international provider of full-service home care, received honorable mention at the 2014 Case in Point Platinum Awards in the Case Management in Acute Settings category for its Partners in Care program.
The Case in Point Platinum Awards recognize the most successful and innovative case management programs that improve access to quality care, promote wellness and advance care coordination across the care continuum.
Partners in Care, offered by Homewatch CareGivers, is designed to measure quality care outcomes while also reducing healthcare costs and hospital admissions. Managing the care of those living with chronic conditions takes not only acute care providers but critically requires participation from family caregivers and support services. Caregiver agencies like Homewatch CareGivers whose staff can support medication regimens, dietary and exercise plans, safety/fall prevention and keep acute care providers aware of red flags, can make a significant impact. A person-centered approach to home care helps to eliminate boredom, loneliness and helplessness in the elderly population.
"At Homewatch CareGivers we recognize that the individual in need of care, or those closest to them, should be empowered to have a say in all aspects of their care," said Jennifer Tucker, Vice President of Homewatch CareGivers International. "In this way, everyone in the healthcare continuum is a partner in their care."
