Home Care Assistance Opens New Office in Waterloo & Wellington Regions
Senior care trailblazer, Home Care Assistance, meets growing demand for in-home care services in Waterloo and Wellington Regions
July 21, 2015 // Franchising.com // Kitchener – Home Care Assistance of Waterloo, the trusted provider of non-medical, in-home senior care, is thrilled to serve the Waterloo and Wellington communities with its newest office which is located at 324 Highland Road West, Unit 12A in Kitchener, Ontario. The office is the 107th location in North America, adding to Home Care Assistance’s rapidly growing footprint worldwide.
“We are excited to launch Home Care Assistance for the residents of Waterloo and Wellington regions,” said Angie Kunnath, Owner of Home Care Assistance Waterloo. “We want to enable seniors in the community by aiding them in maintaining their independence and leading a quality, sustainable lifestyle in the comfort of home. We are able to do this through our innovative programs designed to enhance the aging process with grace and compassion. 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 of Waterloo 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. The care manager 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.
Statistics suggest 89% of seniors prefer to keep living at home rather than move to a facility, yet thousands continue to enter nursing homes every year. With the support of a professionally trained and compassionate caregiver, older adults can age safely and comfortably in their own homes. Services Home Care Assistance provides include:
- Live-in and Hourly care
- Cooking and light housekeeping
- Laundry and change of bed linens
- Grocery shopping and errands
