Hummingbird Cake

Relief and Support for Your Family

Home Care Assistance knows the effort the staff at care facilities puts into taking care of residents. We also realize there may be times, even very brief periods, when your loved one needs additional attention. To meet this need, Home Care Assistance created a new program wherein approved caregivers split their shifts across 2 or more seniors. Available for 1–8 hour blocks, our caregivers can address the short-hour needs of multiple residents within various care facilities and communities. Knowing a trustworthy caregiver is providing the best possible care will help give you peace of mind.

Home Care Assistance caregivers are trained in our exclusive Balanced Care MethodTM, an approach to care that emphasizes healthy aging and longevity.

The Method is based on extensive research on lifestyle factors linked to healthy longevity including healthy diet, physical activity, mental stimulation, socialization, calm, and maintaining a sense of purpose. By promoting a healthy mind, body and spirit, our caregivers support quality of life, enabling older adults to live longer, happier lives. With comprehensive, ongoing training through Home Care Assistance University, a proprietary online training platform, our caregivers are educated on best practices and the latest developments in aging, wellness, Alzheimer’s and dementia care and more.
