Alliance Members Thrive With Accreditation

From the Halifax Plympton Reporter:

In addition to the economic situation, [Comfort Keepers of South Shore, Cape Cod & Metrowest co-owner Robert] Mullaney credits the company’s growth in part to their recent accreditation by the Home Care Alliance of Massachusetts. Accreditation for in-home pay care is new to Massachusetts, and Comfort Keepers was among the first pay-for-care organizations to be accredited.

“Accreditation allows Comfort Keepers to be a preferred provider with government agencies. We were just approved by Massachusetts Brain Injury to be a preferred provider as well,” Raquel Mullaney said.

The Alliance launched its Agency Accreditation Program in July 2010 and accredited 34 of its agencies as of December 9, 2010.   To become accredited, agencies must demonstrate compliance with and/or documentation of 14 points regarding hiring, background checks, training, complaint/abuse reporting, and proof of various insurances.  The program is the only of its kind in Massachusetts and is open to all home care agencies in the state.
