All our caregivers are trained in The Balanced Care Method™.

At Home Care Assistance we understand the important connections between diet, exercise, mental engagement and social ties to reduce stress and create the best life. And Home Care Assistance is the only senior care agency with an emphasis on healthy longevity.

Our continuous education program teaches caregivers the importance of nutrition, exercise, social ties, mental and spiritual health, and how all these things can contribute to longevity and wellbeing for seniors and individuals of all ages.  They are also trained in knowing what foods are beneficial to whom and at what times, dependant on client’s health, habit and goals.

In addition, it is important for you to know that our active caregivers must pass background checks, work authorization checks and our exclusive psychological screening test for home care aides.
