“The NIHCA accreditation process was very thorough and because their standards look at all aspects of our business, it confirmed our belief that NIHCA was the accrediting body to best represent the private home care industry. The process was clear and understandable from our initial conversation all the way through to the site visit. The support we received and the response to our questions was quick and thorough. We never felt pressured, it was more of a learning experience that we will use to constantly strive to meet the highest level of standards. We are proud to be associated with and accredited through NIHCA.”
