(PRWEB) October 10, 2013 - Home Care Assistance of Greater Hartford, a leading provider of in-home care for seniors, is pleased to announce the grand opening of its new office in Newington, Connecticut. To commence the Grand Opening Event, which will be held Tuesday, October 15th, from 4pm-7pm, the Newington Chamber of Commerce will be holding a ribbon cutting ceremony. Guests will enjoy samples from Home Care Assistance’s Comfort Foods Cookbook as well as complimentary massages from 5 pm to 6 pm courtesy of Theresa Gogluicci, owner of Healthy Bod Massage Therapy and president of the Newington Chamber of Commerce.
“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 members of the Greater Hartford community,” said Christine Durrer, Client Care Manager of Home Care Assistance of Greater Hartford. “At the Grand Opening Event I will be discussing some of our major differentiators, including our proprietary approach to aging and care, the Balanced Care MethodTM, our activities-based intervention program designed to delay cognitive decline, the Dementia Therapeutics Method, and our proprietary online HCA University that we use to train caregivers.”
Based on scientific studies of the world’s healthiest seniors, the Balanced Care Method promotes five key behaviors correlated with healthy longevity: healthy diet, physical exercise, active social ties, mental stimulation and a sense of purpose and calm. Caregivers are professionally trained to incorporate the Method into daily care to encourage healthy mind, body and spirit. For example, caregivers have access to healthy meal preparation training through the company’s online Home Care Assistance University.
Home Care Assistance’s Newington Staffing Coordinator, Lorna Hamilton, 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. The screening is used to verify applicants’ suitability for the caregiving career by assessing traits such as honesty, kindness and conscientiousness. Lorna 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.
