Home Care Assistance of Montreal Clients Thrive with the Balanced Care Method


Montreal, QC (PRWEB) December 11, 2014

Home Care Assistance of Montreal, a leading provider of in-home care, continues to offer a higher quality of care with its proprietary Balanced Care Method. Not content with the existing in-home care paradigms, which tend to focus solely on assistance with activities of daily living, Home Care Assistance designed the Method to promote healthy mind, body and spirit. The company has received overwhelming, positive feedback from medical and senior care professionals, praising the holistic and innovative approach to care.

Based on scientific studies of the worlds healthiest seniors, the Balanced Care Method captures five key behaviours correlated with healthy longevity: healthy diet, physical exercise, active social ties, mental stimulation and a sense of purpose and calm. Caregivers are professionally trained to incorporate each area of the Method in daily care to ensure that the same caliber of care is provided to clients across the globe. For example, caregivers have access to healthy meal preparation training through the companys online Home Care Assistance University. Home Care Assistance also recently published a cookbook, Comfort Foods: A Healthy Twist on Classic Favourites, which provides healthy, tasty alternatives to traditional dishes, such as a fried chicken baked with a corn flake crust.

To truly fulfill our mission to change the way the world ages, its important to not only educate our staff and clients on healthy aging and wellness, but to also provide this knowledge to our communities, said Tim Thomas, owner of Home Care Assistance of Montreal. We believe that empowering people to be proactive and informed when it comes to their health will lead to them making better health decisions, ultimately improving their quality of life.

In addition to education around nutrition, Home Care Assistance caregivers are also trained to promote physical activity among their clients, tailored to client mobility and preference. Consistent exercise has been shown to delay memory loss, slow cognitive decline and muscle atrophy and boost mood and mental wellbeing. Home Care Assistance clients tend to not only maintain their physical statuses, but to improve and thrive through the program.

A thorough intake and continued client monitoring enable care managers to develop personalized care programs that incorporate client preferences, personality and history. For example if a client expresses a love of music and values active membership in community groups, a care manager would format a care plan with a dedicated focus on facilitating social ties and active engagement with music (creating, listening, discussing, etc.).

The Balanced Care Method is unlike any other care program in its tailored and research-based approach to longevity. The focus on overall wellbeing results in clients and caregivers reporting higher degrees of satisfaction and fulfillment, and is sure to continue setting the benchmark for excellence in the industry.

Chiropractor in Sugar Land Offers Complimentary Consultation and Exam for a Limited Time


Sugar Land, Texas (PRWEB) August 30, 2014

Sugar Land Health Center, a local chiropractic center, has released an offer to the residents of Sugar Land and surrounding towns. Treating patients with migraine headaches, neck pain, lower back pain, sciatica, tingling and numbness, fibromyalgia, dizziness, digestive issues, herniated or bulging discs, and carpal tunnel are just a few services provided at Chiropractor Sugar Land. Conveniently located in the heart of Sugar Land, Texas (considered the healthiest city in Texas), Dr. Steve Harris and his dedicated staff of professionals have treated over 11,000 patients, from infants to the elderly, suffering from a wide variety of conditions.

Chiropractic care can help reduce or eliminate the stress on nerves, allowing the body systems to function properly again. Any trauma, pain or injury should be checked out by a competent and skilled chiropractor that recognizes the smallest signs and symptoms that something is out of place. While the typical health care approach involves treating the symptom that is bothering the patient, Dr. Steve Harris takes a whole-body (holistic) approach with his patients. Whether someone is suffering from a minor injury to the knee, or has been dealing with a chronic illness for years, he treats the entire body to ensure that all functions are properly rehabilitated after such an injury or condition.

How does he do this? He offers specific, individualized chiropractic techniques and exercises, tailored nutritional counseling based on chiropractic care, patient education not just limited to the patient but the entire family, including small children, and personalized full-body care, as well as accelerated weight loss programs and counseling. In this way, he can truly change the condition of the patient from one of illness and injury to one of health and wellness.

Sugar Land Health wants to make their unique approach to health care accessible to all residents of Sugar Land. Dr. Harris doesn’t want cost to be a factor preventing locals from experiencing this new approach to health care. For a limited time, the office in Sugar Land is offering a free consultation and exam to all new patients, which is a huge savings. With this special offer, Dr. Harris intends to make chiropractic treatment more accessible to the local residents of Sugar Land.

To see if chiropractic is the right option, go to http://chiropractor-sugarland.com or call 281-968-5314 today. Its never too late to start the journey to health and wellness. There is no friendlier or more professional experience. Try Chiropractor Sugar Land, where the focus is not on the site of pain, but on the entire body.
