The Balanced Care Method

The Balanced Care Method is a holistic approach to healthy longevity based on the longest-living people on Earth.

There is no single explanation for how and why some people live longer or have more active years than others. But there is a place where more people live longer and healthier than any other place on earth: Okinawa, Japan. Scientists have been studying this group of seniors to see if we can learn from their methods and live longer, more productive lives ourselves. Home Care Assistance developed the Balanced Care Method, a revolutionary approach to senior care, based on these studies.

The Balanced Care Method™ is based on studies of the extraordinarily long-lived elders living on the island of Okinawa, Japan. Life spans of over 100 years are not unusual on Okinawa. More important, people in their 70s, 80s and beyond enjoy incredible good health and independence despite their years. The Balanced Care Method promotes the lifestyle factors central to these centenarian’s healthy longevity. It is a philosophy that can be summed up in two words: moderation and variety.

Components of Balanced Care Training include:

  • Healthy Diet

  • Physical Activity

  • Sharp Minds

  • Social Ties

  • Calmness & Purpose

 The Balanced Care Method is an evidence-based program built on studies that demonstrate that only one-third of our longevity is based on genetics and two-thirds on lifestyle factors within our control. Home Care Assistance caregivers are trained in the method, offering the first senior care solution with an emphasis on balance and longevity. Our Oklahoma City and surrounding area home care patients will receive the best private care possible based on this method. By working with specific lifestyle behaviors, our in-home care providers extend and enhance the lives of seniors, helping them live longer, happier, and more balanced lives.
