At Century Homecare, our mission is to empower our patients to live safely in their own homes by providing the highest quality of care. We achieve this by working with the patient and caregivers to identify and remove barriers to compliance. These include language and cultural barriers, logistical barriers such as transportation and housing, social and psychological barriers, and economic barriers. We remove these barriers through thoughtful staffing, advocacy for the patient through case management, effective communication, and care coordination. Once we remove these barriers, the patient is more likely to follow the plan of care and achieve the required outcomes.
Century Homecare was founded in 2012 to provide homecare services to underserved communities. The traditional VNA usually services people who need post-surgery care, while ignoring chronic disease and mental health patients. At Century, we aim to provide not only post-surgery care, but also mental health care, and care for chronic health conditions. We serve maligned communities such as the poor, immigrants, and non-English speakers in addition to the traditional homecare recipients.
Century Homecare Operates on Three Principles:
- Commitment to Quality Patient Care
- Competent, Compassionate Clinicians
- Community Involvement
