Biz Look – Home Care Assistance
Our lifespan isn’t decided by fate alone. People of all ages can take steps toward living longer, healthier lives. Home Care Assistance of Edmond is committed to helping seniors achieve that goal.
Helping Seniors Live Their Best Lives
“Only one-third of our lifespan is determined by genetics, which means a staggering two-thirds depends on controllable lifestyle factors,” says HCA co-owner Melissa Hill. Through studying the lifestyles of elders in Japan, HCA developed the patented Balanced Care Method (BCM). Care team members guide seniors toward the best possible life in five key areas— healthy diet, physical activity, sharp minds, social connections, and a sense of purpose.
“It’s the ultimate in assisted living,” says co-owner Greg Bridges. HCA’s clients benefit greatly from the focused, personal attention they receive from their care team, and the service improves the quality of life for their family members, too.
Expert, Personalized Care
All HCA team members receive custom training in the Balanced Care Method. “This is a different way of providing care,” says Greg. “Our caregivers are excited about it.”
Greg is an R.N. with expertise in senior health care. He meets with every new client to help develop a care plan that’s customized for them. Clients are personally matched with a caregiver or care team, so they see the same friendly faces every day. Clients can sign up for as much or as little assistance as they need.
Both Greg and Melissa are deeply involved in the hands-on running of the business. As members of the sandwich generation, they understand the challenges their clients’ families are facing. “We both know firsthand what it’s like to have aging parents in another city who need help,” says Melissa. They seek to offer clients the same excellent one-on-one care they would want for their own parents.
Celebrating Five Years
This summer marks HCA’s fifth-year anniversary. To celebrate this milestone, the community is invited to an open house on August 29, from 10:00 to 4:30.
“A lot has changed in these five years,” says Melissa, “but our core values and mission are still the same. We are focused on helping seniors live happier, healthier lives at home.”
