Though 89% of seniors say they would prefer to keep living at home rather than move to a facility, thousands continue to enter nursing homes every year.
Pennsylvania, PA (PRWEB) April 22, 2014
Home Care Assistance of Philadelphia, a leading provider of non-medical, in-home senior care, recently opened doors to serve the greater Philadelphia community with its newest office. Located at 4275 County Line Road in The New Britain Village Square Shopping Center, the location is the 91st Home Care Assistance office in North America.
“I am excited to share what makes Home Care Assistance unique in the home care industry and I am confident this new location will be a great resource for the residents of Philadelphia and surrounding areas,” said Shital Rane, Owner of Home Care Assistance of Philadelphia. “Our mission is to change the way the world ages through innovative offerings such as our proprietary Balanced Care Method, which is based on the scientifically studied lifestyles of the longest living people on Earth, and our Cognitive Therapeutics Method, an activities-based program designed to delay the onset of cognitive decline.”
Home Care Assistance’s Administrator of Operations, Shital Rane, accepts approximately one out of every 25 caregiver applicants. Background checks, reference checks and work authorization are all completed along with a proprietary Caregiver Personality Screening test. The screening test is used to verify applicants’ suitability for the caregiving career by assessing traits such as honesty, kindness and conscientiousness. Shital approaches each client as if he or she were her own parent and spends time matching the client with the best-qualified caregiver for his or her needs and personality.
Though 89% of seniors say they would prefer to keep living at home rather than move to a facility, thousands continue to enter nursing homes every year. With the support of a professionally trained caregiver, older adults can age safely and comfortably in their own homes.
