Indianapolis, Ind. (PRWEB) September 14, 2013
The non-profit Home Care Association of America (previously known as the National Private Duty Association) has named Peter Ross, co-founder and CEO of Senior Helpers, as president of their board of directors. Ross will serve as president through 2016.
Founded in 2002, the HCAOA is the nation's first association for providers of private duty home care, which includes non-medical home care services. Today, the HCAOA represents more than 1,300 member organizations with over 300,000 employees throughout the United States providing private pay in-home care services for the elderly and disabled. The HCAOA leads the industry that cares for people at home through education and advocacy.
"My life's passion is to take in-home care for our seniors to the next level," said Ross. "The opportunity to serve as president of such a prestigious organization allows me to have an even bigger impact on the home care industry. Our Board has some very exciting plans for the HCAOA with regards to membership, advocacy and strengthening the state chapters. Our future is brighter than ever."
Ross co-founded Senior Helpers with Tony Bonacuse in 2002. The company has 262 franchises in 39 states and one in Canada, all offering a wide range of personal and companion care services to assist seniors living independently with a strong focus on quality of life for the client and peace of mind for their families. Ross also sits on the board of the Alzheimer's Foundation of America.
"We are very excited to have Peter assume the presidency of the HCAOA," said Shelia McMackin, past president of the HCAOA. "His leadership will be critical as the association continues to grow significantly throughout the U.S."
