Home Care Assistance Opens New Office Serving Southern Fairfield County
Senior care leader meets growing demand for in-home care services in Southern Fairfield County
(Norwalk, CT – June 17, 2014) – Home Care Assistance of Southern Fairfield County, a leading provider of non-medical, in-home senior care, is thrilled to serve the Fairfield County community with its newest office. Located at 365 Westport Ave., in Norwalk, Connecticut, the location is the 94th Home Care Assistance office in North America. The office services Greenwich, Stamford, Darien, New Canaan and Norwalk Communities.
“I am 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 southern Fairfield County,” said Larry Gilmore, Owner of Home Care Assistance of Southern Fairfield County. “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.”
Home Care Assistance accepts approximately one out of every 25 caregiver applicants. Background checks, reference checks and work authorization are all completed along with a proprietary Caregiver Personality Screening test. The screening test is used to verify applicants’ suitability for the caregiving career by assessing traits such as honesty, kindness and conscientiousness. HCA’s Client Care Manager, Angela Cartwright, approaches each client as if he or she were her own parent and spends time matching the client with the best-qualified caregiver for his or her needs and personality.
Though 89% of seniors say they would prefer to keep living at home rather than move to a facility, thousands continue to enter nursing homes every year. With the support of a professionally trained caregiver, older adults can age safely and comfortably in their own homes. Services Home Care Assistance provides include:
- Hourly and live-in care
