On Thursday April 24th, Kim and Brian received a very welcome letter from Pierce County Community Connections, the agency that manages social services programs in Pierce County. The director wanted us to know that our 700-plus page response to the county’s solicitation of qualified providers of home care services was successful. PCCC is expanding the scope of our existing home care services contract by adding the COPES, Respite, and other home care programs dedicated to helping homebound seniors and disabled adults maintain their independence in their own homes. We’ve been assisting the county’s home care clients with developmental disabilities to remain safely at home since 2005, and will continue to do so. The addition of these new (larger) publicly funded home care programs to our suite of services is a privilege and a responsibility we are honored to accept.
Brian and Kim wish to thank you, Bobbi and Margi, for your invaluable hard work in helping to make this happen! We also profoundly appreciate all of our dedicated home care aides who have shown the community over the years that our agency is both willing and able to serve those who truly need your support to remain safe and independent in their homes.
The formal Request For Qualifications (RFQ) was published in January, with a deadline of late February. Our response to the RFQ, along with a number of other home care agencies’ submissions, was reviewed starting in March. Chesterfield Home Care also submitted a successful response to the RFQ, and we congratulate them.
