LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--24Hr HomeCare, a leader in non-medical homecare for seniors and individuals with developmental disabilities, announced that it has partnered with meditation app Headspace to enhance workplace wellness and mindfulness throughout its organization.
Headspace is a digital service that provides audio sessions of guided and unguided meditation, including various mindfulness trainings, to help people live healthier and happier lives. Meditation sessions range from just three minutes to twenty minutes, and cover topics ranging from “Anxiety” to “Creativity.” Its audio sessions can be accessed through the Headspace mobile application or online, and can be taken at one’s own pace.
“As a home care provider, 24Hr HomeCare could not be more familiar with the importance of embracing emotional and mental health. Our staff is incredibly dedicated and hard-working and we recognize the importance of taking time out to pause and rejuvenate ourselves. If we are the best we can be, we can provide the best service to our clients,” said Stacy Shimizu, Human Resources Director, “We have made Headspace a benefit to our employees to encourage them to take a few minutes of ‘me’ time, which we believe will heighten their creativity and productivity, while enhancing their workplace experience.”
In the coming months, 24Hr HomeCare has the goal of extending Headspace as a benefit to its Caregivers. Providing care to others oftentimes can place a strain on Caregivers, physically and emotionally. 24Hr HomeCare would like to incorporate Headspace® into its library of resources to reduce Caregiver burnout, so its care providers remain happy, healthy and able to provide the best quality care.
