NEW YORK (June 13, 2023) – A Place for Mom (APFM), the leading online platform and trusted advisory service for senior care in North America, is supporting families in need of in-home care through a partnership with Elara Caring, the full-scale, multi-state home health provider of clinical and personalized services across the patient continuum. The collaboration will provide mutual support to both A Place for Mom’s referral network and Elara’s Personal Care Services division, which offers assistance with activities of daily living wherever individuals call home.
The two organizations established their partnership following a pilot program that demonstrated the tremendous need for Elara’s services within A Place for Mom’s in-home care network. The program is now rolling out across the 10 states in which Elara offers Personal Care Services: Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Oklahoma, and Texas.
“With the rapidly growing demand for in-home care services, we’re thrilled to welcome Elara Caring into our provider network,” said James Thorman, Vice President of Home Care at A Place for Mom. “Elara’s responsiveness to families and ability to activate in-home care services, often within 24-48 hours, makes it a great choice for A Place for Mom’s families who need quick and very dependable local home care providers.”
“At Elara, innovation has been our North Star as we’ve led the way in reimagining the model for home healthcare through a high-touch, high-tech, and data-driven approach that keeps patients healthy and out of the hospital, reduces costs through personalized care and condition management, and improves outcomes for everyone involved,” said Scott Powers, Chairman and CEO at Elara Caring. “The ways in which A Place for Mom helps families navigate and reduce the complexities of seeking care through insight-driven, personalized solutions aligns very well with our approach, and we are delighted to engage in this partnership as we continue to advance our life-changing mission.”
A Place for Mom and Elara Caring will also work together to place families in senior living facilities who are graduating out of personal home care services. In addition, A Place for Mom will serve as a resource to Elara, connecting them with professional caregivers seeking full-time employment.
