The ACLA is an organization of practitioners whose vision is a world where adults and their families live well as they face the challenges of aging.
“I am passionate about providing the highest caliber care to my clients and becoming a certified Geriatric Care Manager was one way in which I could improve my knowledge around aging issues and become a valued resource to both my clients and the community,” said Becky Grim, Vice President of Client Care at Home Care Assistance. “I take pride in our reputation for providing the best trained, best screened caregivers in Central Virginia; we interview 25-30 caregivers before we make one hire. After that hire is made, we spend significant time training and getting to know our caregivers to ensure that we make the best possible client match.”
Home Care Assistance provides hourly and live-in services, allowing seniors to remain safely in their homes. Having an experienced and professional caregiver in the home of the client also provides family members respite and peace of mind.

Based on the scientific studies of the world’s healthiest seniors, the Balanced Care Method promotes five key lifestyle behaviors correlated with healthy longevity: healthy diet, physical exercise, active social ties, mental stimulation and a sense of purpose and calm. Caregivers are professionally trained to incorporate the Method into daily care to encourage healthy mind, body and spirit.
