The Balanced Care Method
In developing the Balanced Care Method, Home Care Assistance called upon cutting-edge gerontological research and combined it with easy-to-understand principles to assemble a truly comprehensive guide to a healthy lifestyle. Based upon the findings of the revolutionary Okinawa Centenarian Study that looked into the people of Okinawa, Japan, the world's longest-lived population, the Balanced Care Method emphasizes a variety of healthy living components.
These principles cover everything from eating a healthy, balanced diet to finding absorbing pasttimes and maintaining important friendships. Our caregivers are trained and Balanced Care Method certified so that they, too, can incorporate these principles into their own lives and the lives of their clients. Thanks to the Balanced Care Method, our clients are encouraged to stay socially connected, make new friends, and find a sense of purpose and calmness as they grow older.
