Home Care Assistance, North America’s leading provider of in-home care for seniors, is pleased to announce the grand opening of its new office in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. To commence the Grand Opening Event, a ribbon cutting ceremony will be held Thursday, March 21 at 9 a.m. The Harrisburg Chamber of Commerce and other local dignitaries and business owners will be in attendance to welcome Home Care Assistance to the community.
“We are very excited to be a part of, and a resource for, the Harrisburg community,” said Linda Jackson, Director of Client Services and co-owner of Home Care Assistance of Harrisburg. “The addition of Home Care Assistance in the marketplace will give seniors the option to live happily and healthfully at home. Our live–in care service option provides a comprehensive alternative to assisted living with around-the-clock monitoring and one-on-one care.”
Home Care Assistance’s proprietary approach to care, the Balanced Care Method™, is based on scientific research of 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. All Home Care Assistance caregivers are trained in The Method, promoting healthy mind, body and spirit for clients.
Home Care Assistance accepts approximately one out of every 25 caregiver applicants. Background checks, reference checks and work authorization are all completed along with the proprietary Caregiver Personality Screening. The screening is used to verify applicants’ suitability for the caregiving career by assessing traits such as honesty, kindness and conscientiousness. Ms. Jackson approaches each client as if he or she were her own parent and spends time matching the client with the best skilled caregiver for his or her needs and personality.
Home Care Assistance provides hourly and live-in services to seniors, allowing them to remain safely in their homes. Having an experienced and professional caregiver in the home of the client also provides family members respite and peace of mind. Caregivers utilize a 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 staff is available 24/7 to provide experienced, trustworthy caregivers to help with all home care needs for seniors: transportation, healthy meal preparation, companionship, socialization, activities, personal care, medication reminders and dementia care services.
