With more than 6,000 home health agencies in the United States and dozens right here in the Hinsdale area, finding someone to care for a loved one isn’t hard. But finding the right agency for the job can be.
The Home Care Standards Bureau (HCSB) has made it easier to find the best care available by honoring the best companies in the business. Home Helpers of Hinsdale is proud to be among the first to be recognized with an A+ rating from the HCSB..
“We have always been committed to providing only the best, most compassionate care for our clients,” said Mary Doepke, RN, president and co-owner of Home Helpers in Hinsdale. “To be recognized for doing so is an honor that is much deserved by our dedicated team of caregivers.”
The HCSB grants the A+ rating only to home care agencies that meet and adhere to a stringent code of standards and ethics. Established in 2013, the HCSB A+ rating is new, but Home Helpers has met the criteria necessary to obtain the rating since the company began providing care in 2005, Doepke said.
HCSB standards include extensive background checks and training for all caregivers. Once achieved, A+ agencies such as Home Helpers must submit monthly disclosure statements to ensure that those standards are being maintained. A+ agencies also are subject to planned and surprise audits by the HCSB.
“We are dedicated to ensuring high quality standards from our A+ rated home care agencies,” said Josie Hall, operations manager for the Colorado-based agency.
“Our recognition as an A+ agency provides further assurance to our clients and their families that Home Helpers will provide only the very best of care,” Doepke said.
Mike and Mary Doepke of Western Springs founded Home Helpers of Hinsdale in 2005 and remain dedicated to providing the highest quality care and service to their clients. Headquartered in Hinsdale, the state-licensed company provides a wide variety of services, including companionship, personal care, household chores and transportation, to clients in Lyons Township and eastern DuPage County. The company is proud to have earned the Home Care Standards Bureau’s A+ rating. (630) 323-7231; www.MaryandMikeCare.com
