Aiding Individuals and Families in the Durham – Chapel Hill Area
Nurse Care of North Carolina, an Arosa+LivHOME company, announced the acquisition of Senior Care Management Associates, a care management company based in Durham, NC. The company will provide care management services alongside Nurse Care of North Carolina’s existing home care services in the Durham – Chapel Hill area.
“We are thrilled to offer an additional layer of support that care managers provide,” says Barbara Patterson, General Manager at Nurse Care of North Carolina. “They empower clients and families to make informed decisions regarding health and long-term plans, and in the long run, make their daily life easier.”
With the acquisition of Senior Care Management Associates, it marks Nurse Care of North Carolina’s first foray into professional care management services, also known as Aging Life Care.™
Aging Life Care Professionals are skilled in conducting comprehensive biopsychosocial assessments that identify not only an individual’s physical and functional needs, but also their preferences, priorities, risks, and even emotional and social challenges.
“Access to Care Management can make a huge difference in the overall quality of life for clients as well as caregivers,” says Caryn Utberg, Founder and Professional Care Manager. “We pride ourselves with understanding the physical, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, and lifestyle concerns of our clients and their care partners,”
Care Management + Home Care
LivHOME was founded in 1999 on the premise that care management plus home care, under the same umbrella, would be a revolutionary concept. The combination of care management plus home care services continues to be core to its growth, as it provides families with additional guidance, resources, and support when caring for a loved one.
The company today, Arosa+LivHOME, remains the leader in integrating care management and home care services. It currently employs the most Aging Life Care Professionals™ (ALCPs) in the country, many of whom have extensive experience and certifications in gerontology, social work, nursing, and public health.
“We are proud to be the largest employer of Aging Life Care Professionals,” says Steven Barlam, LCSW, MSW, CMC, Chief Professional Officer of Arosa+LivHOME. “We’ve become the go-to resource for families across the country who are in need of stability, clarity, and peace of mind.”
Expansion to Crystal Coast
In addition to the purchase of Senior Care Management Associates, Arosa+LivHOME acquired Companion & Home Care, a home care company based in Emerald Isle, NC. The acquisition brings Nurse Care of North Carolina to the eastern coast and becomes its fifth office in North Carolina.
“In an industry with over 50,000 providers, our success is dependent on the quality and compassion of our care professionals, and our ability to meet the multitude of needs of our clients and their families,” says Cyril Vergis, COO of Arosa+LivHOME. “Ensuring a combined offering of care management and home care services in all of our current and future markets will drive our organic and acquisition growth strategy.”
The company now operates eighteen offices across four states: California, Illinois, North Carolina, and Texas. It continues to expand its efforts to be a national provider of home care and care management services.
