Our client is cognitive impaired with mild to moderate dementia. She loves going out for fun activities and having great conversations. We are seeking someone who is patient, understanding and can re direct for an ongoing 9am to 1pm Saturday and Sunday.

We're NOT just another home care agency. We are the premier provider of in-home caregiving services in Maricopa County.

We use the latest technology to keep our staff and caregivers in sync with schedules and care needs of our clients, which in turn helps us provide the BEST care of our clients.

Our science-based approach to care really makes a difference in the lives of our clients by providing a pro-active, engaging approach to aging that focuses on lifestyle. Our two science-based approaches to care include proprietary Balanced Care Method and Cognitive Therapeutics Method. We are also a certified provider of the nationally recognized Music & Memory program, designed to help older adults with wide range of emotional, mental and physical challenges find renewed joy and meaningfulness in their lives through music.

Our proprietary Balanced Care Method encourages exercise, mental stimulation and socialization-activities that enhance quality of life for our clients and that are based on scientific studies of the oldest and happiest people on earth -- in Okinawa, Japan.

Our Cognitive Therapeutics Method is a proprietary activity-based cognitive intervention program, designed to delay the onset of new symptoms and the progression of existing symptoms in individuals with mild to moderate dementia. The activities and exercises are ways to engage our clients in areas of memory, language, attention, decision making and visual/spatial perception.
