I interviewed this provider
very quick to respond to info requests, thus the 3 stars-- offered a level of care not quite yet needed, but was impressed with Balanced Care Method, etc--

I am a past client of this provider
My mother's passing was met with great sadness in our family. We greatly appreciate your condolences and assistance in getting through this most difficult time.
You and your people played a key role in allowing my mother and father to make the most of the last twelve months together. Without the commitment and expertise of Home Care Assistance's remarkable caregivers, my mother's last months with us would have been a horrendous orderal. From cokking and cleaning to companionship, your caregivers melded with our family in a way that was not instrusive yet highly effective and always at the ready to handle the various emergencies and non-routine occurences that seemed to spring up more often than not. Our caregiver was a particular stand-out. Her commitment and caring for the welfare of my parents was without equal and the major reason my father requested Home Care Assistance to continue to provide services to him.
We very much appreciate the continued support for my father and would not hesitate to recommend your company and its caregivers to anyone.
Sincerely Michael G.
From Home Care Assistance
Our mission at Home Care Assistance is to change the way the world ages. We provide seniors and disabled adults with quality care that enables them to live happier, healthier lives in the comfort of their home. Our services are distinguished by the caliber of our caregivers, the responsiveness of our staff and our expertise in round-the-clock care.
Home Care Assistance is a non-medical home care agency based in Raleigh, NC. We employ both Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) and Personal Care Assistants (PCAs) to assist our clients in their own homes for as long as possible, while treating them with the dignity and respect that they deserve. This focus has allowed us to operate as North America's preferred brand in home care while maintaining an intimate and personal rapport with each of our clients and their families.
Our caregivers offer gentle assistance with showering/bathing, dressing/grooming, healthy diet meal preparation, medication reminders, light housekeeping, transportation to and from appointments, shopping, socializing, exercising, etc. Every one of our experienced, compassionate caregivers is fully screened, bonded and insured. Unlike many other agencies, we do not only do a one-time background screen at hire. We do an annual background check, which includes a Department of Motor Vehicle screen each year.
Our CEO, Jaleh Neshat, opened Home Care Assistance about 13 years ago after having the opportunity to care for her own family member. During that time, Jaleh realized the need for quality home care services in the area. Jaleh is highly respected in the industry and she runs her agency with experience, integrity and compassion. Our staff is available for emergencies 24 hours a day, 365 days per year and you will always speak with a 'live' person.
The Balanced Care Method (TM) is based on the scientifically studied lifestyle choices of the longest, healthiest living population in the world - Okinawans. The Balanced Care Method is unique because it focuses as much on quality of life as on longevity; emphasizing healthy nutrition, physical and mental exercise, and a purposeful and calm lifestyle. Home Care Assistance is proud to train our caregivers in the Balanced Care Method and provide the premier in-home care solution for older adults.
Why we are trusted by our clients (past and current) and the medical community:
Our Balanced Care Method, which is exclusive to Home Care Assistance, emphasizes the importance of a Healthy Diet, Physical Activity (exercise) and Maintaining Social Ties. This Balanced Care Method is an evidence-based program built on years of research and studies that demonstrate that only a small percentage of healthy longevity is based on genetics and largely based on lifestyle factors that are within our control.

The Cognitive Therapeutics Method (CTM), also exclusive to Home Care Assistance, is a cognitive stimulation program developed by the scientific division of Home Care Assistance. The program aims to improve quality of life in our clients by promoting brain health through personalized, one-on-one activities that engage the main cognitive domains in the brain.

*Maria Shriver personally chose Home Care Assistance to be the exclusive caregiving partner for her event, Move For Minds, a special event held across the country where men and women use their bodies and minds to raise awareness and support research on women's brains and Alzheimer's Disease. Needless to say we are extremely proud of this honor!
*We received the Provider of Choice Award by Home Care Pulse for the month of June, 2016. With so many agencies in our area we are very excited about this coveted award!
We do not require a contract and you can cancel at any time with only a 24 hour notice. Many of the other agencies charge higher evening and weekend rates. We do not.
