“It is an honor and a privilege not only to be a member of such a fine organization, but to be appointed to the Membership Director position,” said Goodrich. “The ABHC strives to uphold the trust families have placed in us to review, check, and ensure the best quality of home care companies.” “We want to provide seniors and their families with important information they can use to make the right decision for their home care needs.”
According to the company website, the American Board of Homecare (ABHC) it is a collection of companies that formed in concern over companies that were sending out contractors, and other potentially dangerous practices to take care of the elderly and those in need. The risks family, hospitals and the elderly take when employing these types of organizations led to the formation of the ABHC.
ABHC members are employee based organizations where the employees get such benefits as health care, 401k and many other benefits. ABHC members are expected to hold to the highest quality of hiring practices, including ensuring all employees can legally work in the US and have passed a thorough background check.
