Our mission at Home Care Assistance is to change the way the world ages. We provide older adults with quality care that enables them to live happier, healthier lives at home. Our services are distinguished by the caliber of our caregivers, the responsiveness of our staff and our expertise in Live-In care. We embrace a positive, balanced approach to aging centered on the evolving needs of older adults.
Home Care Assistance performs rigorous screening to find the best, most reliable and caring caregivers available. When you meet them, you’ll immediately feel at ease. We typically hire 1 in 25 applicants. Caregivers must have experience working with older adults. We check references, national criminal backgrounds, and legal right-to-work documentation. Finally, we administer an exclusive caregiver screening exam developed by our on-staff Ph.D. psychologist. This test checks for honesty, kindness, and conscientiousness.
Our exclusive Balanced Care Method™ training is a research-based approach to aging, focusing on nutrition, physical activity, social engagement and other positive lifestyle factors that have been proven to maximize health and wellness for older adults.
Home Care Assistance specializes in hand-selecting a best fit caregiver to optimize each clients’ long-term health, safety and well-being. We offer an extensive roster of qualified caregiver employees with a diversity of backgrounds, experiences and personalities to ensure you receive quality care that is customized to your needs and preferences.
Home Care Assistance manages your caregiver so that you don’t have to. All of our caregivers are full employees and bonded and insured for your protection. Plus, our team manages all aspects of taxes, benefits, and workers compensation.
The Cognitive Therapeutics Method (CTM) is a patent-pending cognitive stimulation program developed by the scientific division of Home Care Assistance. The program aims to improve quality of life by promoting brain health through personalized, one-on-one activities that engage all cognitive domains.
CTM activities were developed by our expert team based on scientific research on non-pharmacological interventions for cognitive decline. They are consistently updated to reflect the latest findings and best practices. These activities target a wide array of cognitive domains including memory, executive functioning, attention, language, and visual spatial perception, as well as some non-cognitive domains.
The activities have varying levels of difficulty making the program appropriate for all clients, from those who are not yet affected by cognitive impairment to those with more severe symptoms.The activities are designed to be fun and stimulating. The focus of the program is not on getting the “right” answer, but on engaging and reasoning. Implementing the program one-on-one in the comfort of home allows clients to function optimally by avoiding the confusion and distress that come with an unfamiliar environment.
