Choosing Home Care: What makes ABC Home Care Different
ABC Home Healthcare is private, full service home care agency providing assistance to seniors living at home. We were founded by Board Certified Family Nurse Practitioner Jeannette Sheehan. Unlike many franchise home care agencies you see advertised, our home care agency is managed by our ABC nurses and Certified Geriatric Care Managers.
We work hand-in-hand with Medicare providers, community resources and elder care service agencies including AgeSpan (formerly Elder Services of Merrimack Valley and North Shore), SeniorCare, Mystic Valley Elder Services and Minuteman Senior Services. These relationships are very important when choosing a home care agency. Massachusetts and the Federal government DO NOT regulate private home care agencies UNLESS the agency has contract(s) with Elder Services, which ABC Home Healthcare does. Our relationships with elder care agencies also help you to maximize the home care services you or your loved one receive in the most economical way.
Let us help you navigate the maze of home care. We offer both non-medical and medical home care services. That means we can provide the care you need now and adjust that care as your needs change. Call us at 781-245-1880 to learn how ABC can help you.
Every home care service at ABC starts with a no-cost in-home assessment with an ABC Certified Geriatric Care Managers. We then work together with you and your family to develop a personalized, cost effective care plan. Once home care services are underway, your ABC caregiver will provide our nurse team with ongoing updates. Our office is staffed 7-days a week so we can better serve you. We are only a phone call away if you have questions or concerns.
The Home Care Alliance of Massachusetts recently produced a video series highlighting the numerous benefits to working with an agency vs hiring an independent caregiver. Take a look and learn more here.
