(PRWEB) September 10, 2012
Home Care Assistance, the leading provider of in-home care for seniors, is proud to announce the launch of http://www.dementiahomecare.com. The site is one component of an expansive suite of Alzheimer’s and dementia-related educational resources and outreach initiatives developed by the Home Care Assistance. Lauded in the aging industry as the premier provider of in-home care for adults with dementia and spurred by the company’s mission to change the way the world ages, Home Care Assistance is providing a wide spectrum of free resources to the public, including targeted websites, online books, informational webinars and free continuing education seminars hosted for professionals who commonly work with adults with Alzheimer’s and their families. The site is designed to provide information to family and professional caregivers alike who are eager to learn what practices promote optimal quality of life for adults with Alzheimer’s and other dementias. Early response to the site and dementia initiative has been extremely positive, with family members of loved ones with dementia and experts who commonly work with older adults praising the efforts of the company. By completing the brief form on the website, individuals will automatically receive a free, downloadable copy of The Handbook of Live-In Care, the second book in the company’s Award-Winning Senior Wellness Series. The book is the first publication of its kind targeted at family caregivers, and is sure to be a valuable resource for anyone who has a loved one living with dementia.
“Home Care Assistance is proud to be a leader in community education around dementia,” said Kathryn Zakskorn, Public Relations and Marketing Manager of Home Care Assistance. “With an upcoming webinar this week and a three-part series of expert-targeted webinars on the topic of Alzheimer’s and dementia in the coming months, this is an excellent time to launch dementiacare.com.”
Home Care Assistance is considered an innovator in the in-home dementia care space with their proprietary care model, The Balanced Care Method. The company’s balanced approach to care goes well beyond the type of assistance typically provided to include an emphasis on promoting lifestyle factors that contribute to healthy longevity, such as healthy diet, sharp minds and active social ties.
Home Care Assistance, unique in its evidence-based and science-guided approach to long-term care, wellness and aging, has continued plans to expand its suite of educational materials and outreach activities not only for clients, but for adults living with Alzheimer’s and their loved ones around the world. Having recently launched an online university for caregivers, the company is offering cutting edge training to reflect current best practices in working with adults who have dementia to ensure a consistent, high standard of care.
“Our mission at Home Care Assistance is to change the way the world ages,” said Shadi Gholizadeh, Business Operations Manager of Home Care Assistance. “By providing information about the positive impact that in-home care can have on the lives of individuals with dementia, we hope to promote our vision that seniors can lead fulfilling lives in almost any state of physical or mental ability when given the proper support and resources.”
