Our Story

Homewatch CareGivers Network

In 1980, Paul Sauer, founder of Homewatch CareGivers, discovered not only a need for in-home healthcare services for people to continue to living safely and happily in their homes, but he also laid the foundation for how such care should be delivered. Today we call this person-directed care, which focuses on each individual and their unique needs as they receive compassionate care in their preferred surroundings.

He established Homewatch CareGivers as a leader in the home care industry. The original business expanded via a large, franchise network of local business owners in hundreds of locations across North America and internationally.

Throughout company growth, the roots of compassion and kindness apply to everything we do because we know that the decision to have someone new enter a loved one’s home is never to be taken lightly. It’s our Moms, our Dads, our friends, our families. It’s not about the tasks to be done while in their home, but how to have a meaningful relationship with another person who needs a little help as they maintain some independence.

At Homewatch CareGivers, each of our local owners and their staff focus on the importance of the human interactions between their professionally-trained caregivers and every client. With this approach to care, both caregiver and care receiver feel a purpose to their day together.

Today, Authority Brands, LLC owns Homewatch CareGivers, LLC, which is headed up by CEO Julie Smith. The mission to provide superior quality home care services, a compelling employment opportunity and to be a trusted partner within the health care continuum.
