“Many times before people move into a memory care community, they are supported at home by family members and paid caregivers. Clients with memory impairing diseases are unique in what their needs are and require a special kind of caregiver to understand those needs. Time and again, we have been incredibly impressed with the support and compassion that Home Care Assistance has been able to provide these clients while ensuring their dignity.
At Silverado, we have had the opportunity to work with Home Care Assistance as clients transition from home to residing in our communities as well as ongoing support of those clients once they are living with us. Their caregivers are kind, reliable, caring and trustworthy. It is evident that they work to hire the right people.
A unique offering that Home Care Assistance has is that they have a social worker that is a part of their interdisciplinary team which truly ensures that there is an advocate in place for that client. That social worker is able to help the families understand what is truly needed and be an advocate for the client they are serving. This is very unique offering and truly a differentiator.
Home Care Assistance is an excellent provider and should be a top choice for a family who is looking for care someone they love.”

“But beyond creating strengths for elders, families that emphasize Balanced Care will come to work together and understand more clearly how to cope with medical problems and illnesses. The secret is in the strength of the foundation of care. The rest then comes into clearer perspective; complex situations and decision-making during this time of life are better understood and engaged. Home Care Assistance is about foundation-building-for elders, families, supportive friends and, ultimately, for your health care team.”
