About Home Care Assistance

Kathy Johnson was inspired to start Home Care Assistance in 2003 after struggling to find reliable in-home care for her own parents. The Palo Alto, California-based company began franchising a year later and now has locations across the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico and Australia. Home Care Assistance caregivers follow the company's Balanced Care Method, which is designed to promote healthy activity, stress reduction and social interaction for seniors, and Cognitive Therapeutics Method, which is designed to promote mental acuity through various cognitive activities. Franchises offer both hourly and live-in nonmedical care services.
