“She has been a strong voice for industry standards and a leader in bringing innovation into home care in ways that enhance the family and client experience. Where she leads, many follow," she added.
Cohen is a social entrepreneur dedicated to transforming the way care is delivered to seniors at home. A visionary leader and nationally recognized expert in care delivery, she has spent her entire career in the aging field as a creator, innovator, and influencer.
As HouseWorks Founder & CEO, Cohen took an entrepreneurial approach to service delivery that returns a sense of choice and control to seniors and their families. During the beginning of COVID-19 pandemic, she led the company’s efforts to establish care and safety protocols for clients and to educate Caregivers about the COVID vaccine; as a result, 80% of HouseWorks Caregivers had received at least one dose of the vaccine by Summer 2021.
Cohen said she was proud to receive this recognition. “As an industry advocate, I take pride in HouseWorks’ innovation and success—and as I social worker I am equally proud of the impact the company has made to support seniors who choose to live at home. I am so appreciative of this award and will never stop using my voice to make a difference,” she said.
