THE BALANCED CARE METHOD

There is no single explanation for how and why some people live so many healthier and more active years than others. But there is a place where more people live longer and healthier than any other place on earth: Okinawa, Japan. Recently, scientists have been studying this group of seniors to see if we could learn to live a longer and more productive life. Home Care Assistance has developed a revolutionary and proprietary approach to senior care based on these centenarian studies.

The Balanced Care Method is based on studies of the extraordinarily long-lived elders in the Okinawa region of Japan. Life spans of over 100 years are not unusual in Okinawa. More important, people in their 70s, 80s and beyond enjoy good health and independence. Excellent physical health, mental awareness, and inner calm are common among the studied elders. The Balanced Care Method™ seeks to capture some of the lifestyle factors that go toward creating such long-lived and healthy people. Its philosophy can be summed up in two words: moderation and variety.

COMPONENTS OF BALANCED CARE TRAINING
  • Healthy Diet 
  • Physical Activity 
  • Sharp Minds 
  • Social Ties 
  • Calmness & Purpose
The Balanced Care Method is an evidence-based program built on studies that demonstrate that only one-third of our healthy longevity is based on genetics and two-thirds on lifestyle factors within our control.

Our Home Care Assistance caregivers throughout Chicago, IL are trained in the method, offering the first senior care solution with an emphasis on balance and longevity. By working with specific lifestyle behaviors, Home Care Assistance caregivers extend and enhance the lives of seniors, helping them live longer, happier, more balanced lives.

The Cognitive Therapeutics Method is an activity-based program designed to prevent the onset of new forms of cognitive decline, as well as slow the progression of existing symptoms for individuals experiencing cognitive impairment. Based on cutting-edge scientific research and the landmark National Institutes of Health report suggesting that mental stimulation is associated with slower cognitive decline, the method currently includes more than 20 activities targeting not just memory, but the five primary domains of the mind.
  • Executive Functioning includes cognitive abilities such as reasoning, problem solving, judgment, and thought flexibility.
  • Attention refers to the ability to focus on a specific piece of information for a long period of time while ignoring competing distractions.
  • Language refers to the ability to execute verbal functions including spontaneous speech, speech repetition, speech comprehension, naming, reading and writing.
  • Visual-Spatial Perceptioinvolves the ability to accurately perceive an object’s physical location and understand the relationships between objects.
