With more than 20,000 non-medical home care agencies in the United States, ComForCare of Montgomery County, and Pennsylvania is one of the select 110 agencies to receive the Home Care Standards Bureau (HCSB) A+rating by meeting the most stringent of standards.
HCSB grants the A+ rating only to home care agencies that meet and adhere to a stringent code of standards and ethics, including comprehensive background checks and annual training for all caregivers.Once achieved, A+ rated agencies, such as ComForCare, must submit regular disclosure statements to ensure that all standards are being maintained- including proper insurance and state licensing. A+ rated agencies also are subject to planned and surprise audits by HCSB.
To maintain an HCSB rating ComForCare must provide the highest standard of non-medical senior care personal care, and respite care, including companionship, light housekeeping, grocery shopping, medication reminder, errands, doctor visits, and specialty care to clients throughout the surrounding regions. You want to hire a caregiver that will respect and support your loved ones as much as you do. Our personalized plans, ComForCare can help.
