The Home Care Assistance Difference

Specialized COVID-19 Response Efforts

Our Rapid Response Team is constantly updating protocols and communicating best practices to our caregivers, often through our caregiver app, to help keep our senior clients safe at home.

A Care Team Dedicated to You - Virtually

More than just a caregiver, we assign each client a care team. Our thousands of thoroughly-vetted and qualified caregivers are there to provide care to clients, with the support of a remote Care Team led by a Client Care Manager.

Social Distancing at Home
Thanks to a Personalized Care Plan

In addition to essential daily life activities, our care plans often include basic house cleaning, grocery shopping, and medication pickups, which promote successful social distancing. Our trained caregivers also help keep seniors physically and mentally engaged while staying safe at home.

How a Customized Long-Term Care Plan from Home Care Assistance Works

Home Care Assistance has developed a specific plan to address this pandemic and take care of seniors in their homes, now and in the long-term.

  1. Call us and we will determine your needs to craft a personalized care plan remotely

    Given the CDC recommendation for social distancing, we've developed a process for conducting virtual assessments either online, or by phone, so our team can create a care plan tailored to your loved one's evolving needs.

  2. Caregivers are expertly matched and adhere to special protocols

    Home Care Assistance has one of the largest caregiver networks in America. We hire dedicated caregivers and expertly match them to clients in a manner that helps minimize the risk of infection. Our caregiver app, among other means, allows for ongoing screening.

  3. We assign a virtual care team that's accessible 24/7

    When you hire us, you receive a full-time care team to assist you remotely. Your Client Care Manager develops a specialized care plan and provides quality assurance throughout the length of service. Your Staffing Manager selects the caregiver who is the best fit for your loved one's needs and personality, and your Home Care Liaison provides access to vital community resources.

  4. Our Balanced Care Method™ promotes emotional and physical wellbeing for seniors

    Our proprietary Balanced Care Method™, a training program for caregivers, promotes cognitive stimulation, nutrition, physical activity, a sense of calm, and social engagement. This program supports our client's mental as well as physical health, reducing the potentially negative side effects of isolation.

Home Care Assistance was such a blessing during a very difficult time for our family. We found ourselves suddenly needing assistance with my father on very short notice. My father didn't need care for very long but during the short time he was cared for, we could not have asked for a better experience. The caregivers not only took great care of my father, but they were excellent communicators and sent me text updates so that I could relax at work knowing he was ok. They even cleaned out his fridge and decluttered his kitchen, which was a task I have been trying to tackle for a long time but was always barred by my father! I cannot express how much of a godsend Home Care Assistance was for us. Now that my father is better and just needs a little help, we have set it up so that someone will come once a week to help him with various tasks like shopping, laundry, etc. I highly recommend Home Care Assistance.

Then when my mother-in-law needed someone to help her, we immediately set up an appointment for her to talk to Home Care Assistance. She now has an aide and is very satisfied. Our caregivers are now like members of the family. We have a routine and I am able to go out without worrying about my loved ones' safety or care.

We were impressed when Home Care Assistance provided us service overnight. Our caregiver was very prompt and helpful when it came to preparing meals and coaching on exercise and nutrition. She even went beyond the call of duty to feed the cats and empty the litter box. By the end of the two weeks, she was great friends with my wife; they enjoyed rearranging the house and wrapping Christmas presents together. When my wife recovered from her illness, we hated to see her caregiver go.

Last year my mom fell and received a new diagnosis of dementia in addition to her mild Alzheimer’s disease. She required care while I worked but daycare programs were too lengthy and boring for her. Home Care Assistance stood out because they have a program called the Cognitive Therapeutics Method™. My mother was interviewed about her interests and abilities and matched with a interventionist who developed a program especially for her. She enjoys the stimulating puzzles and word games, in addition to music and physical exercise. This service has been a godsend for both her and me. She is calm and content when I return home from work. I have not had calls from caregivers, police, firefighters, or EMT’s at work to intervene with my mom’s behavior. She accepted the interventionist from the start and works with her without problems. These people are true professionals and I cannot thank them enough for being able to handle her care while I am at work.

The Home Care Assistance staff was so impressively attentive! They returned my call the same day I called about my 92-year-old mother, who needed help in the Rossmoor Retirement Community in Walnut Creek, CA. We set up a meeting at my mother's condo in Rossmoor and the respiratory therapist on staff was set up for three days a week. The first day my mom and my sister (a nurse) met her, both thought she would be perfect. She came to my mother's condo on Tuesday for her first day and they both got along perfectly; she was a great fit for us and reasonably priced. Unfortunately for all of us, my mother passed away comfortably with all of us at her bedside the next evening. We were hoping to have a longer relationship with Home Care Assistance but from what we saw, this is the best home assistance around, especially regarding high-quality care and dignity for clients.

Please know how much I appreciate the efforts of that I received from Home Care Assistance, who collected and stored donations on behalf of the Tubbs fire victims and from Swinerton Builders who coordinated, picked up and delivered all of the donations. Immediately after the Northern CA fire took its toll on Santa Rosa, Home Care Assistance graciously “put out the word” that they were accepting donations for the fire victims. However, many of the fire victims that needed help were not ready to take much of anything, until they had a place to live. This caused several of Home Care Assistance's offices to become storage areas for a huge amount of donations that nobody seemed to want. I became aware of this issue and wanted to help turn this problem into a good thing. I knew so many people who were going to need these items, especially when they were finally settled into new homes. In addition to the donations from Home Care, I received 2-3 apartments worth of furniture and household items donated by Swinerton Builders. The best part is that Swinerton came through and delivered everything! Two months later, most of the fire victims have found long-term temporary housing and I have already been able to distribute approximately 75% of the donations to 10-12 families that lost everything. None of this could have happened without your help and for that, I am forever grateful.
