All Care Resources Receives Home Care Re-Accreditation

Meets Updated Standards of the Home Care Alliance of Massachusetts

Lynn, MA – All Care Resources, a private-pay, non-profit home care agency based in Lynn, MA, has reaffirmed its commitment to quality care and ethical business practices by earning re-Accreditation from the Home Care Alliance of Massachusetts.  The alliance, which represents 190 home health and elder care agencies across Massachusetts, 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.

All Care Resources Director, Elaine Buckley says “We are proud to continue to meet these accreditation standards that convey All Care’s commitment to quality.  Providing peace of mind to our clients, and their families, is our primary goal.  By maintaining our accreditation, we demonstrate that we not only talk quality, but we also deliver on that promise”.

The Home Care Alliance launched this Accreditation Program for Private Pay agencies (agencies that are not paid by Medicare or Medicaid), in July 2010. Since that time, over 60 agencies have submitted documentation to show that they meet standards established by the Alliance.  The standards were recently revised to raise the bar to promote even higher standards for agencies seeking re-accreditation.

“The Alliance’s accreditation program demonstrates our leadership for an area that is becoming more and more important to the health care delivery system in Massachusetts,” says Patricia Kelleher, executive director of the Home Care Alliance of Massachusetts.  “The revised standards highlight our agencies’ best practices, and will help guide members of the public as they choose who will take care of their loved ones in their homes.”
