We had two close relatives who passed away in assisted-living/nursing home facilities about twelve years ago. When the time came that they needed assisted living, we did not know about at-home care. We just assumed that "it was time" for them to leave home and go to a care facility. We were not aware that they could have stayed at home and received assistance with activities of daily living from in-home caregivers and nursing services. Looking back, we now realize that the last years of their lives could have been happier, healthier, more peaceful and comfortable, and more dignified if we could have found quality at-home care for them rather than moving them to a facility.
Years later, as we wanted to become personally involved in the at-home care industry, the experiences with our own relatives led us to a company that stands head-and-shoulders above all others. The mission of Home Care Assistance (HCA) resonated with us: Changing the Way the World Ages. At HCA, we not only provide assistance with activities of daily living (e.g., meal preparation, personal care,etc.), but we teach our caregivers our proprietary Balanced Care Method- that focuses on clients’ physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well being and enables them to live independently in their own home with greater personal dignity, self-worth, and self-esteem. Additionally, our Cognitive Therapeutics Method is helping those with Alzheimer's and dementia to better manage and to slow the progression of the symptoms they experience.
