Comfort Keepers of MetroWest, South Shore and Cape Cod:
…has hired 50 new caregivers and administrators and expects to hire at a rate of five new employees per week to keep up with increasing demand for in-home senior care services…
In addition to the [improving] economic situation, 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.
Greater Medford VNA & Additional Care
… is among the first in the state to earn accreditation from the Home Care Alliance of Massachusetts.
The alliance, which represents 170 home health and elder care agencies across Massachusetts, has created an accreditation protocol to promote quality services, ethical business standards and superior employment practices in an industry that lacks meaningful licensure in the commonwealth of Massachusetts even while it grows in popularity.
“We are proud to be in the initial group of home care agencies to promote these accreditation standards that convey Greater Medford VNA and Additional Care’s commitment to quality,” said the agency’s CEO Marie Knasas. “The peace of mind for our clients is paramount and we are hopeful people will continue to see the advantages of keeping people independent in their homes and communities.”
…has expanded its Massachusetts service area to cover Martha’s Vineyard and the South Coast. Personal care and support services will be provided from Bayada’s Falmouth, service office to clients in Martha’s Vineyard and the Upper Cape (Bourne, Falmouth, Mashpee, and Sandwich), and South Coast (Acushnet, Dartmouth, Fairhaven, Marion, Mattapoisett, and New Bedford).
“We’re thrilled to be able to provide even more people with Bayada’s high quality home health care services, which are delivered with compassion, excellence, and reliability,” said Neal O’Brien, director of Bayada’s Falmouth office….
Each Bayada Nurses Massachusetts office, including Falmouth, is accredited by the Home Care Alliance of Massachusetts and the Community Health Accreditation Program (CHAP).
