At Home Care Assistance, our mission is to change the way the world ages and every day our caregivers work to fulfill this mission by embracing a positive, balanced approach to care centered on the evolving needs of older adults. Because of their years of experience and innate compassion for others, Home Care Assistance caregivers are the most dedicated in the home care industry and continue to elevate the standard of care worldwide.
Our training is also key to caregiver success. Home Care Assistance University, a unique online training platform, gives our caregivers access to the training and expertise they need to provide the gold standard of care. Caregivers are expert in company initiatives like the Balanced Care Method™, a holistic approach to senior care, and the Cognitive Therapeutics Method™, an activities-based program to promote brain health and delay or slow the progression of symptoms of cognitive decline. Caregivers are also offered specialized training in post-hospital care, Alzheimer’s and dementia care, mobility support and much more.
