The Accreditation Commission for Health Care, Inc. (ACHC) and ComForcare are proud to announce that they have partnered to offer significant benefits to ComForcare franchises. Some of these benefits include discounted accreditation fees and educational material to help maintain a competitive edge in the private duty industry.
“By collaborating with ACHC, ComForcare is able to provide all of the necessary tools to guide each franchise through the ACHC accreditation process at a discounted price,” stated Karen Meserve, ComForcare’s Director of Nursing & Accreditation Services. “ACHC provides surveyors with significant private duty experience who understand our business and who really work side-by-side with our franchisees to educate and help them become more efficient and effective.”
ComForcare is a premier provider of private-duty home care services to people of all ages with a mission to help make life easier for those coping with a chronic medical condition, recovering from an illness or injury, or dealing with the challenges of aging – in the comfort of their own homes.
ComForcare began providing home care services in 1996 as a single office in Bloomfield Hills, M.I. The success of this operation led to the start of the franchise system in 2001, and today, ComForcare has more than 160 locations throughout the U.S., Canada and the U.K, and continues to grow in size, reputation and services.
ACHC Business Development Manager Matt Hughes said, “ACHC is excited about our partnership agreement with ComForcare to help their franchisees incorporate private duty nursing into their available services. ComForcare’s decision to partner with ACHC demonstrates their commitment to meeting higher standards, providing quality care and demonstrative experience to their patients and identifying their strengths and opportunities for improvement.”

They are ISO 9001:2008 certified and have CMS Deeming Authority for Home Health, Hospice and DMEPOS. ACHC is the provider’s choice for accreditation because of personal account managers, relevant and realistic standards, competitive pricing and a friendly, consultative approach to accreditation.
