Our Service

A Family
Solution


Only TheKey combines learning from the latest research and clinical studies in cognitive stimulation therapy with over 10 years of experience that our company, Home Care Assistance, has in delivering home care, using our Cognitive Therapeutics Method™.

We get to know your parent or loved one, understand their needs and likes, then design a customized Care Plan based on who they are as a person—not a patient. Your loved one gets the care and engagement they deserve, and your family gets the support you need.

  • We hand select our highly trained Memory Care Specialists to be a great fit as a companion and to meet your family’s unique care needs.
  • Your dedicated Care Specialists provide companionship and personalized memory care with oversight by TheKey Care Team and our Memory Elite Team.

A New System of Care Built on Years of Learning

Expertise and Experience

Our approach to care is informed by an advisory board of medical and academic experts, plus our learning from over 10 years of experience supporting families using our Cognitive Therapeutics Method™. Our Memory Elite Team resolves complex challenges and is available for consultations with families.

Trained Care Specialists

TheKey’s Memory Care Specialists are the best of our best caregivers. We draw from the top 10% of our most experienced and passionate care professionals. In addition to our standard caregiver training, all of our Memory Care Specialists must complete TheKey’s Advanced Cognitive Care Training.

Continuity of Care

Our unique monthly payment model ensures continuity of care from dedicated Care Specialists—at a set monthly price. We work with you to determine the hours and support you need, then recommend the right care solution. As your needs change over time, you can easily adjust your level of service.

TheKey is dedicated to our older population, and we have taken proactive measures during this difficult time to support our clients, their families, and our caregivers.

We have effective and evolving COVID-19 protocols, including requiring each caregiver to meet our safety requirements and confirm that they are symptom-free through our proprietary Caregiver app. We invest in Personal Protection Equipment, such as N95 respirators, for our team members to wear as needed to help protect our clients and caregivers.

As essential workers, we are now working with authorities to schedule COVID-19 vaccinations for our employees.

In response to COVID-19, we follow the best industry practices for home care, informed by CDC guidelines and OSHA recommendations.

  • Appropriate PPE provided and required for every visit

“TheKey offers families an entirely new care solution for loved ones with cognitive decline.”

Through my experience building and leading Home Care Assistance, I saw the opportunity for a new approach to graceful aging that’s equal parts art and science, high-touch and high-tech. TheKey is the perfect solution for honoring the older loved ones in your life with dignity and independence even as their cognitive and physical needs evolve over time.
