Personal Care Services
Community Based Skilled Nursing Accreditation Programs
Since 1986, the non-profit Commission on Accreditation for Home Care (CAHC) has set the standard for Companion Care, Personal Care Services and Community Based Skilled Nursing.
The Commission on Accreditation for Home Care (CAHC) is governed by a volunteer Board of Trustees representing the public’s interests, with members from a broad array of sectors, including home health care, social services, business, and financial services, along with consumers.
CAHC’s Accreditation Program is all about value; value that no other accrediting body can give you. Whether your business model is Private Pay, Managed Care or Medicaid, CAHC will guide and mentor you every step toward your accreditation while empowering your staff with distinct competencies to sharpen your competitive edge.
Our organization is dedicated to promoting the highest quality and safety standards in the industry.
Our mission is to promote the delivery of high quality home care services to the communities within your State's communities:
- by developing Standards
- evaluating the implementation of the Standards
- accrediting agencies that are in compliance with these Standards
- providing industry and consumer guidance, education and support.
Home care providers that share our commitment undergo our accreditation review, which allows us to monitor their compliance with established guidelines and industry best practices.
Providers that pass our review receive accreditation, "a seal of approval" valued by consumers, payers and regulators.
