We developed our own successful home health care agencies, a non-medical home care agency, hospice agency, transportation, GAFC and DME just to name a few. Our home health care agencies are CHAP Accredited and our Non-Medical Home Care Agency is Private Duty Accredited.
There is no substitute for experience! Choose a home health care consultant that has actually started and successfully operates home care agencies. There are other consultants who can get you started, but only one who will get you started the right way.
Choose carefully. Most home health care consultants do not have real world experience outside of their clinical staff, and this includes the home health care consultants you see advertised on Google. If they have never started and operated a successful home health agency, they do not understand what it takes. Our team at CHC has started and built our own successful agencies.
Let us help you start your home health care agency the right way.

We then train and guide you using your self study as a tool prior to visiting your office to conduct a mock accreditation audit with your staff.

Advisory: Some home care consultants make promises they cannot keep. They boast about large client lists, but do not employ enough coaches and staff to be there when you need them? At CHC, we have a team of 12 employees and do not take on more than 6 new home care startup clients nationwide per month in effort to manage growth and maximize customer service. Remember, cheap service isn't good and good service isn't cheap.
