Annapolis, MD (PRWEB) December 18, 2013
Home Care Assistance of Annapolis, a leading international provider of non-medical, in-home senior care, has recently opened its doors to serve the Annapolis community and surrounding areas in Anne Arundel County. Home Care Assistance of Annapolis is centrally located at The Village at Waugh Chapel, 2642 Brandermill Blvd. in Gambrills, Maryland.
“We are excited to announce the opening of Home Care Assistance of Annapolis. Seniors and their loved ones in Annapolis and the surrounding communities are finally able to benefit from our innovative mission to Change the Way the World Ages. I am excited to share what makes Home Care Assistance unique in the home care industry because I have gone through the challenging process of finding quality in-home care for my own Mother following her diagnosis of Parkinson ’s disease. Having found the in-home care industry to be inadequate in so many areas, I am determined to share what I have learned with those who have a similar need,” said Anne Rohall, Owner and Administrator of Home Care Assistance of Annapolis and licensed Maryland attorney with a background in health and disability law and elder abuse prevention.
Nancy Blethen, Co-Owner and Deputy Administrator of Home Care Assistance of Annapolis added: “In order to embrace our mission to Change the Way the World Ages, Home Care Assistance of Annapolis will provide clients with a specialized holistic plan that ensures health and happiness in mind, body and spirit. To that end, we utilize our proprietary Balanced Care Method™, based on the scientific research of the longest living people on Earth which reside in Okinawa, Japan, as well as research gleaned from our Cognitive Therapeutics Method, our innovative approach to in-home dementia care designed to delay the onset of cognitive decline in our clients.”
Theresa Pritchett, Home Care Assistance of Annapolis’s Client Care Manager ensures that only licensed Certified Nurse Assistants (CNAs) are employed by the Company. Having worked in the Gerontology field for all of her nursing career, Theresa understands the importance of careful screening to hire only the best and the brightest in the industry.
“Home Care Assistance of Annapolis provides our clients with so much more confidence than other in-home care companies in our area can. We ensure that our licensed caregivers have undergone strict background checks, reference checks, work authorization screenings, health tests and that they have successfully completed our proprietary Caregiver Personality Screening test,” said Theresa Pritchett. “The screening test is used to verify applicants’ suitability for the caregiving career by assessing traits such as honesty, kindness and conscientiousness. We approach each client as if he or she were our own parent and we spend time matching the client with the best-qualified caregiver for his or her needs and personality.”
Though 89% of seniors surveyed report that they would prefer to keep living at home rather than move to a facility, sadly, thousands of seniors continue to enter nursing homes every year. With the support of a professionally-trained caregiver, older adults can now age safely and comfortably in their own homes with dignity. Home Care Assistance of Annapolis is also able to provide additional assistance to seniors living in long-term care facilities where caregiver resources are traditionally inadequate. Home Care Assistance of Annapolis provides the following services:
- Hourly and live-in care/companionship
