Guided Living Senior Home Care receives Home Care accreditation

PLYMOUTH — Guided Living Senior Home Care, a private-pay home care agency based in Plymouth and a secondary office in Falmouth, is among a select group of agencies to earn accreditation from the Home Care Alliance of Massachusetts.

The alliance, which represents 180 home health and elder care agencies across Massachusetts, has created an accreditation protocol to promote quality services, ethical business standards and superior employment practices in an industry that lacks meaningful licensure in Massachusetts even while it grows in popularity.

“We are proud to promote these accreditation standards that convey Guided Living’s commitment to quality,” said Guided Living principal Patrick Flaherty. “The peace of mind for our clients is paramount and we are hopeful people will continue to see the advantages of keeping people independent in their homes and communities.”

Guided Living offers in-home certified caregiver and licensed nursing services.

The Home Care Alliance launched this accreditation program for private pay agencies, which are not paid by Medicare or Medicaid, in July 2010. Agencies seeking accreditation are required to submit extensive documentation to show that they meet standards established by the Alliance.

The standards were developed over several months in consultation with an advisory task force representing agencies throughout the Commonwealth. Training requirements, administrative protocols and business practices are among the categories that the Alliance reviews for accreditation.
