Home Care Assistance Opens New Edmond, Oklahoma Office
Senior care leader meets growing demand for in-home care services in Edmond and surrounding areas
(Edmond, OK – August 6, 2014) – Home Care Assistance of Oklahoma, a leading provider of non-medical, in-home senior care, is thrilled to serve families in Edmond and Oklahoma City with its newest office. Located at 323 S. Blackwelder in Edmond, the office is the 96th Home Care Assistance office in North America.
“We are excited to share what makes Home Care Assistance unique in the home care industry and I am confident this new location will be a great resource for the residents of Edmond, Oklahoma City and surrounding areas,” said Melissa Hill, co-owner of Home Care Assistance Oklahoma. “Our mission is to change the way the world ages through innovative offerings such as our proprietary Balanced Care Method, which is based on the scientifically studied lifestyles of the longest living people on Earth, and our Cognitive Therapeutics Method, an activities-based program designed to delay the onset of cognitive decline.”
“Providing high quality care and being a resource for our clients and their families are priorities for Home Care Assistance,” said Greg Bridges, co-owner and agency administrator of Home Care Assistance Oklahoma. “Our hiring process is very selective and we invest in the training and development of our caregivers so that our clients receive only the best in care. Home Care Assistance caregivers are trained through our proprietary online learning platform where they have access to almost 100 courses that will improve their skills set and further their development.”
Home Care Assistance conducts background and reference checks as well as a proprietary Caregiver Personality Screening test. The screening test is used to verify applicants’ suitability for a caregiving career by assessing traits such as honesty, kindness and conscientiousness. “We approach each client as if he or she was our own parent, said Hill. “We spend time matching clients with the best-qualified caregiver for his or her needs and personality.”
