Kim Gignac will play an integral role in serving the rapidly growing senior population in Waterloo & Wellington Regions
(Kitchener, Ontario – April 26, 2016) Home Care Assistance of Waterloo, a leading provider of in-home care for seniors, is proud to welcome Kim Gignac to the team in the role of Associate Director, Client Services. Kim brings over 15 years of experience in customer relations in the medical equipment industry, primarily servicing long-term care homes, hospice and clients living at home. Kim has seen first-hand the pressure family members and friends face when a loved one’s care needs have changed. Kim’s passion to educate and walk people through the different options they have available to their loved ones and themselves is shown in her ability to connect and build relationships with clients and caregivers. Kim’s knowledge and passion for dealing with the elderly not only comes from her professional experience, but also from helping both her grandmas discover available options to them for their care needs. Kim strongly believes that everyone should be able to age with grace, integrity and respect.
Kim has joined Home Care Assistance to make a positive impact on clients, caregivers and the community in which we live: “I hope to increase the awareness of options available to seniors as they age and increase their quality of life by providing an amazing product that creates a healthy and enjoyable lifestyle. I was immediately drawn to the quality of the programs at Home Care Assistance,” said Gignac. “The Cognitive Therapeutics Method™, Balanced Care Method™ and Hospital to Home Care initiative are leading programs in the home care space and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to collaborate with a team that has such passion and commitment to the seniors they serve.”
Based on the scientific studies of the world’s healthiest seniors, the Balanced Care Method™ promotes five key lifestyle behaviours 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. In addition, the Cognitive Therapeutics Method™ is a research-based program designed to promote long-term brain health and prevent cognitive decline by stimulating the five main cognitive domains with fun and engaging activities.
As the leading provider of care services, Home Care Assistance is available 24/7 to provide experienced, trustworthy caregivers to help with all home care needs for seniors including transportation, healthy meal preparation, companionship, socialization, activities, personal care, medication reminders and dementia care services. Home Care Assistance caregivers are bonded, insured and screened for criminal backgrounds and driving histories to ensure that clients receive the best care from the most qualified, trustworthy caregivers. Professional, compassionate caregivers encourage independence and engage clients in physical, mental and social activities, providing safety and comfort to seniors and respite and peace of mind to their family members.
