Date:12/14/2009

Professional HealthCare at Home now provides in-home caregivers who have been certified by the Alzheimer’s Association Care Academy. The company provides home nursing, rehab therapy, caregiver, and hospice services to San Francisco Bay Area families.

Walnut Creek, CA (PRWEB) December 14, 2009 -- Professional HealthCare at Home, the San Francisco Bay Area’s leading provider of total home health care, including nursing, rehab, personal caregiver and hospice services, has expanded its staffing expertise in the care of Alzheimer’s patients. The company now provides in-home caregivers who have been certified by the Alzheimer’s Association Care Academy. “We felt it was important to offer this highly-trained level of expertise among our caregivers,” says John Griscavage, CEO. “Our clients who suffer from dementia and the medical effects of Alzheimer’s disease require specialized and attentive care for their comfort and to ease the stress on family members.”

Training by the Alzheimer’s Association, the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer care and support, covers research-based topics on this complex disease. Caregivers gain not only a deeper understanding of the disease and related dementias, they also develop skills for managing challenging behaviors, providing the best personal care, and connecting, both mentally and emotionally, with clients in late stage dementia.

“A loved one with Alzheimer’s disease presents one of the most challenging and difficult care situations for family members,” continues Griscavage. “We are pleased to be able to offer a high level of expert care and support, and are grateful to have the resources of the Alzheimer’s Association Care Academy for staff training and certification.”

Professional HealthCare at Home is a full service agency offering in-home medical, non-medical and hospice care to families throughout the San Francisco Bay Area for over 20 years. Its service area includes San Francisco as well as cities throughout Alameda County, Contra Costa County, San Mateo County, Santa Clara County, and Solano County. Its Victorian Home Care division serves Monterey and Santa Cruz Counties, and its Haven HealthCare division serves counties within the Salt Lake City, Utah region. Services include nursing care, physical and occupational therapy, post-hospital rehabilitation, extended nursing care, wound care, home health aides, medical social workers, medication management, senior care and hospice care. Home caregivers and personal care assistants provide help with activities of daily living, eldercare, transportation and companionship. More information is available at www.professionalhc.com.
