Home Care Assistance is the premier provider of non-medical in-home care. The company was founded in 2002 by Kathy Johnson, PhD, a Certified Geriatric Care Manager, after she had a tough time finding quality care for her own parents. Home Care Assistance has since evolved into a solution for thousands of families as the live-in care specialists, offering high-quality care on both an hourly and 24/7 basis.

Home Care Assistance caregivers are bonded, insured, covered by Workers' Compensation and thoroughly screened to ensure that clients receive the best care from the most qualified caregivers. Clients are expertly matched with trained, compassionate caregivers and care plans are tailored to the clients individual needs and preferences. With a mission to change the way the world ages, Home Care Assistance helps seniors live well at home through innovative offerings such as the Balanced Care Methodâ„¢, which is based on scientifically studied lifestyles of the longest living people on Earth, and the Cognitive Therapeutics Methodâ„¢, a research-based activities program designed to promote brain health.
