Fairfax, Virginia (PRWEB) January 09, 2013
Home Care Assistance, North America’s leading provider of in-home care for seniors, is excited to announce the opening of its new Fairfax location. The office is situated just a mile from Inova Fair Oaks Hospital in Pender Village next to Harris Teeter and will serve seniors in Fairfax, Loudoun and Prince William County.
"We enjoy working closely with family members to support their loved ones' wishes to live independently, providing an alternative to assisted living facilities and nursing homes," said Michelle Misleh, RN, MSN Client Care Manager of Home Care Assistance. "By keeping families together and inspiring older adults to live happier healthier lives, we truly are changing the way the world thinks about aging".
According to a recent study, 89% of seniors say they would prefer to live at home rather than to move to a facility. Yet every year, thousands continue to enter nursing homes—never knowing they had the option to remain in their own homes, with assistance from professional caregivers. Home Care Assistance expertly matches caregivers with clients to ensure seniors feel safe and comfortable in their own homes. The company is known for being extremely selective during the caregiver hiring process, taking on only 1 in 25 applicants. Home Care Assistance thoroughly examines potential employees, conducting background checks, reference checks and work authorization. Applicants also complete a Caregiver Personality Screening, designed by Home Care Assistance psychologists to verify honesty, kindness and conscientiousness.
Home Care Assistance caregivers are expertly trained in the Balanced Care Method™, a holistic approach to care based on scientific research around the elder population in Okinawa, Japan. Individuals in Okinawa embody “healthy longevity”, living longer and healthier lives than any other population in the world. Inspired by this culture, The Balanced Care Method promotes excellent physical health, mental awareness and inner calm. Caregivers are trained in this holistic approach to aging, encouraging independence and engaging clients in physical, mental and social activities, in addition to assisting with meal preparation, personal hygiene, bathing, medication reminders, transportation and more.
Home Care Assistance Fairfax is located at 3903-Q Fair Ridge Drive in Fairfax. The office is situated just a mile from Inova Fair Oaks Hospital in Pender Village next to Harris Teeter.
