Home Care Aide Council

Description of resource: The Home Care Aide Council (Council) is a non-profit trade association with over 150 members throughout Massachusetts committed to enhancing quality of care throughout the home care industry by focusing on the advancement of the home care aide workforce. Home care aides are the heart of the Commonwealth’s home care system, providing personalized and supportive services that enable our elders and disabled children and adults to remain at home. The Council works with state agencies, the Legislature, the media, and the general public, providing timely information and education on home care services and advocating for priority home care issues and initiatives. Throughout our history, the Council has brought together providers from certified home health, homemaker, and private pay agencies to ensure that quality home care aide services are delivered throughout Massachusetts. The Council has been the leader in setting standards for home care aides and is proud to serve as the question and referral source for standards of practice. The Council keeps its members informed of issues affecting home care aide services through our informative Board meetings, regional meetings, monthly newsletter, and email alerts. Most importantly, membership in the Council provides you with the opportunity to network with and learn from other home care providers in order to develop innovative ways to balance the needs of your agency with the needs of your staff and your clients.
