In October of 2020, the National Association for Home Care and Hospice unveiled its new Private Duty Home Care Certification Program, and we are excited and delighted to extend our congratulations to five newly certified agencies!
This program is the only national certification created by private duty leaders, exclusively for the private duty community. Certification offers providers the opportunity to demonstrate their commitment to quality and service delivery excellence through formal certification and requires each agency location to conduct a comprehensive examination relating to nineteen (19) separate but interrelated aspects of business and operations providing documentation and an attestation statement showing adherence to all Certification program standards in each category in order to achieve the distinction.
NAHC Private Duty Home Care Certification
List of Certified Agencies
The NAHC Private Duty Home care standards of certification were developed by private duty home care industry leaders. Many of these leaders serve on the NAHC Private Duty Home Care Advisory Board, Advocacy Council, and NAHC Board of Directors. In addition, the NAHC Private Duty Home Care Certification Program has been modeled after elements within the NAHC Private Duty Accreditation program, and successful state certification programs in Massachusetts and California developed by The California Association for Health Services at Home and the Home Care Alliance of Massachusetts.
Congratulations to those newly certified and we look forward to welcoming additional agencies in the near future!
