A Commitment to Caring for more than 28 years

We founded AccuCare in 1995 with one goal in mind- helping families and their aging loved ones to live comfortably at home, with the highest quality home health care available, while maintaining a safe, independent and dignified lifestyle.

A Message from our Founder

"In 1983, my fifty-three-year old mother was given just six weeks to live after waging a six-year battle with breast cancer. Not only was this the most devastating news but the thought of having my mother spend her final days in an institution was unacceptable to me. I wanted the opportunity to care for my mother one last time in the comfort of our own home where she would be surrounded with all the familiar things that made our house her home. However, given the state of her health and her medical needs, we knew we needed professional help. Fortunately, we learned about home care and the different services available which allowed my mother to be able to remain in her own home and die in my arms with my brother by our side. That moment would forever impact me and the direction my life would take. For it was this experience that would lead me to establish AccuCare Home Nursing in 1995. It is my wish that every individual and family know that home care is there to offer all the support you will need as you face the challenge of illness. Let us create beautiful memories that will last a lifetime." -Elizabeth J. Ratigan
