March 5 Minute Spotlight – Steve Coe

Steve and Cherie Coe, owners of Home Care Assistance, provide comfort, support and security for seniors and their loved ones. They accomplish this by meeting with their clients and family to complete a thorough assessment of the client, their home and the challenges they face as they age at home. The next step is to select the best caregiver for the client and introduce the two to confirm the care plan and the companionship fit.

The client assessment is based on their exclusive Balanced Care Method. Home Care Assistance caregivers are trained in this method where they study nutrition, fitness and mental stimulation in order to enhance your parent’s health and wellness. Home Care Assistance promotes health and independence for seniors, while offering support and respite for their loved ones.
