THE COUNCIL AND ITS MEMBERS

  • Not-for-profit professional organization of licensed home health care providers. Incorporated in 1983.
  • Member agencies are comprised of proprietary and non-profit, community based home care service providers included associate and allied members.
  • Personal home care services are delivered under contractual agreements with New York City Human Resources Administration (HRA).

SERVICE DELIVERY

  • Services provided to more than 65,000 elderly, disabled and frail New York City residents in 2003.
  • The goal of the Council member agencies is to provide medically necessary personal care services, which enable recipients to maintain quality of life and independence in their communities.
  • Home care services of member agencies provide recipients an alternative to unnecessary and costly institutionalization.
  • The agencies effectively meet the multi-cultural and multi-ethnic service needs of the population served.

QUALITY HOME CARE IN A COST EFFECTIVE ENVIRONMENT

  • In the City's home attendant program, less than 8% of the total expenditures are required to administer the program. Thus, the majority of dollars expended (92 %) go directly to service of our clients.

HOME CARE AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

  • HCC member agencies employ over 70,000 individuals in entry-level home care positions with competitive wages and benefits.
  • HCC agencies provide employment opportunities for entry-level positions in home care. These jobs become a transition from public assistance programs to gainful employment and independence for many. Health care insurance provided by HCC members to their employees significantly reduces the burden on the Medicaid program.
  • Home care workers make significant contributions to the "cash flow" in the communities where they live through purchase of goods and services and to the government through payment of tax.

CONCLUSION

The Home Care Council is the largest professional home care organization of any metropolitan city in both the nation and the world. We impact tens of thousands of individuals through our delivery of home care. We maintain independence of individuals and families in their community through delivery of home care services to our customers as an alternative to costly institutions and providing gainful employment to our deliverers of services.
