Taking care of a loved one is both gratifying and stressful. This is why Alan and I are strongly committed to our company’s mission of changing the way the world ages, said Alistair Young.
Fort Worth, Texas (PRWEB) December 28, 2011
Home Care Assistance, a leading provider of in-home senior care, is excited to announce the opening of its Fort Worth office. Fort Worth Home Care Assistance, owned by Alan and Alistair Young, is the fifth Home Care Assistance location in Texas. Responding to comments from clients and medical professionals, the couple decided to open a Home Care Assistance franchise to fill a need for a reliable in-home care agency to service the Fort Worth area. The new office is located at 5712 Colleyville Blvd., Suite 120 in Colleyville, Texas.
“With 89% of seniors preferring to remain in the comfort of home, according to a survey conducted by the AARP, we saw a need for this type of service in our local community and wanted to ensure those receiving services were getting the highest caliber care possible, said Alistair Young, Owner of Fort Worth Home Care Assistance. “Taking care of a loved one is both gratifying and stressful. As the primary caregiver for my mother who still lives in her home, I feel these emotions every day. This is why Alan and I are strongly committed to our company’s mission of changing the way the world ages. We want to make a difference.”
Nationally recognized as a premier provider of live-in around the clock care for seniors, Home Care Assistance prides itself in taking a preventive approach to health and wellness. Its proprietary Balanced Care Method™, based on rigorously studied lifestyle factors that contribute to healthy longevity, is a core part of its caregiver training model and care program.
“This company is at the forefront of helping seniors understand how to age and educating older adults about achieving optimal quality of life through their health and wellness book series, condition-specific guides and the Balanced Care Method,” said Young.
The hiring process for caregivers is rigorous: only 1 in 25 applicants is hired. Caregivers are also bonded, insured, Texas State certified and undergo criminal background checks. Most important, time and resources are put into matching a compassionate caregiver with the client to ensure the client feels comfortable in their home.
Like the Youngs, Tammy Morris, Client Care Manager at Fort Worth Home Care Assistance, and her husband were also the primary caregivers for her mother. “My husband and I took care of my mother in her home until her death. It was important that my mother remained in her home where she wanted to be, but at the same time it was physically and emotionally draining. Had I known of a company like Home Care Assistance with its expertly screened caregivers, tailored client care plans and highly responsive staff, our life would have been much less stressful.”
Home Care Assistance is in the midst of an aggressive nationwide expansion campaign with plans to have 120 offices open throughout North America by the end of 2014.
