CAHC is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) independent accreditation body operating in all 21 counties in New Jersey.  We were founded in 1986 by the Home Care Council of New Jersey in collaboration with the New Jersey Department of Human Services, the Home Care Association of New Jersey, and the Home Health Services and Staffing Association of New Jersey. Over the years CAHC has played a significant part in establishing standards and assigning accountability in New Jersey’s rapidly expanding home care industry. 

We began with the Standards for Personal Care Services and then expanded our accreditation program in 1995 to include In-Home Skilled Nursing Services.
