Chicago-based Help at Home recently acquired Shelbyville-based My Care at Home.
Help at Home sees opportunity in Indiana because of the state’s efforts to implement managed long-term services and supports in 2024. The Indiana Pathways for Aging Program recently made recommendations for vendors in the program.
“The Help at Home team helped make our experience as smooth as possible throughout the transaction and integration process,” said former owner JoAnn Wiksten. “Their service-oriented approach was a great fit for us and will enable better outcomes for our clients and a more robust career path for our team members.”
Help at Home also acquired Ohio-based Berkshire Homecare.
“These organizations are a great fit for Help at Home and allow us to extend our service coverage within these two key states,” said Help at Home Chief Operating Officer Ray Smithberger in a press release. “We look forward to bringing Help at Home’s innovative care coordination value proposition, enhanced caregiver support and quality services to more clients in Ohio and Indiana.”
Help at Home has more than 180 locations in 12 states, including in Merrillville, Valparaiso, La Porte and South Bend. They employ 53,000 caregivers who help care for 66,000 clients. The company was founded in 1975.
