Metrowest Daily News Promotes HCA Accreditation Program

The Home Care Alliance’s new Accreditation Program, which was recently announced at an event for members at Hebrew SeniorLife Home Care, is already gaining attention.

The Metrowest Daily News ran a story on the program that is meant to promote a series of standards for private duty home care agencies. The article mentions that, “The new standards cover areas such as recognizing and reporting elder abuse, ensuring services and costs are clear to customers up-front, and establishing procedures for clients to report problems with aides.”

The article states further a need for such standards as “Locally, the population of residents 75 and older was measured at nearly 26,000 in the 2000 Census, but that number is expected to grow to more than 40,000 by 2030, according to data from the MetroWest Community Health Care Foundation.”

The Metrowest Daily News covers 27 towns west of Boston, including Framingham.
