"We hired Home Care Assistance of Greater Burlington to assist with non-medical home care needs while my wife was away tending to a family matter. All the caregivers were wonderful as they provided me with companionship, prepared healthy home cooked dinners in line with my diabetic diet, and provided transportation and assistance to doctor’s visits.
Caregivers Mike B. and Blandine were extremely conscientious during the night shift, checking on me via a voice monitor anytime they heard a strange noise in the house. Caregiver Casey had an especially sharp eye during my medication reminders and was able to sneak in flax meal to my dinners with a skilled touch.
Owners Tom and Stacy Lee kept things in tight order by providing transportation to and from the airport for my wife, installing a piece of insulation where needed to keep out a draft, adding salt to the water tank and shoveling snow after a snowstorm to provide safe footage for people coming and going. The concierge service included the Client Care Manager always on call for backup support, providing Cognitive Therapeutics to help keep me mentally sharp, and picking up prescriptions when needed. When an unplanned visit to the ER occurred after same day surgery, she stayed with me in the ER for 4 hours acting as my advocate providing pertinent information to the medical staff, bringing in newly prescribed medication from home to stay on schedule and assisted me with eating and drinking until I regained my strength.
I would wholeheartedly recommend Home Care Assistance of Greater Burlington to anyone considering non medical in home senior care. I am grateful for the service they provided."

"My wife Carol had a hard two-year struggle with incurable cancer, declining steadily until life was hardly more than a pin-hole. The last year I arranged for a caretaker for weekdays, and had help from my daughters, but in the final month they needed help as well and I was no longer able to handle weekends and nights. We contacted Home Care Assistance, who provided round-the-clock attendants. I cannot really find the words to say how wonderful they were: highly competent, comforting and caring, endlessly patient and reassuring. They became family friends. Carol passed away — thankfully, in peace — clutching in her hand a little soft animal that one of the attendants had given her. It was symbolic of the relationship that had developed. I cannot praise and thank them enough."

"Home Care Assistance raises exactly the right banner in promoting The Balanced Care Method as the foundation for all good care. In the rush of medical care systems that focus almost exclusively on problems, The Balanced Care Method encourages an approach which emphasizes creating strengths. For centuries we have known that better health in aging is tied to physical, emotional, social, and spiritual factors. Regardless of diseases, building on these basics of good health matters.
But beyond creating strengths for elders, families that emphasize Balanced Care will come to work together and understand more clearly how to cope with medical problems and illnesses. The secret is in the strength of the foundation of care. The rest then comes into clearer perspective; complex situations and decision-making during this time of life are better understood and engaged. Home Care Assistance is about foundation-building–for elders, families, supportive friends and, ultimately, for your health care team."
