ComForCare Montgomery County Receives the Home Care Standards Bureau A+ Rating
In 2017, ComForCare Montgomery County was one of 110 agencies in the country to receive the Home Care Standards Bureau’s A+ Rating. With more than 20,000 non-medical home care agencies in the United States, ComForCare of Montgomery County, Pennsylvania is one of the select agencies to receive the A+ rating by meeting the most stringent standards. The HCSB only grants the A+ rating to home care agencies that meet and adhere to a code of standards and ethics--including comprehensive background checks and annual training for all caregivers. Once achieved, A+ rated agencies, such as ComForCare, must submit regular disclosure statements to ensure that all standards are being maintained, including proper insurance and state licensing.
HCSB A+ rated agencies also are subject to planned and surprise audits by the HCSB.
To maintain an HCSB rating ComForCare must provide the highest standard of non-medical senior care personal care, and respite care, including companionship, light housekeeping, grocery shopping, medication reminder, errands, doctor visits, and specialty care to clients throughout the surrounding regions.
