About Us

Message from the CEO

Brett S., Founder and CEO

As a former healthcare administrator, I launched Chosen Family Home Care with the goal of having a more focused, direct impact on the delivery of care than I could ever accomplish within my previous leadership roles. For me, the joy of running an organization like Chosen Family Home Care is having the ability to positively improve the lives of individuals needing customized senior home care. As a passionate Philadelphia resident, I know that many local seniors can benefit from new approaches to in-home care. Innovative solutions will bring our senior and disabled adult clients more connection to the community. Plus, we provide families with a greater sense of comfort and peace of mind that their loved one is indeed matched with an ideal  and supportive caregiver.

This starts by including the family, loved ones, or healthcare partners throughout the care planning process. This is a key component of the concept of “family-centered care,” which has been adopted by top medical centers. A strong communication loop between family, the caregiver, Chosen Family Home Care management, and community healthcare practitioners is essential for ensuring that all the needs of the senior client are met. While this may not sound like a revolutionary concept, it is not commonly practiced within the home healthcare community.

The LGBT older adult population is expected to grow from 3 million people today to nearly 7 million people by 2030. However, the LGBT population is twice as likely to age alone and four times less likely to have children. The LGBT community is also twice as likely to be single than its non-LGBT peers, and they are also more likely to be estranged from their families.

As a result of these factors, they often lack familial support that others have. They typically rely on families of choice for care, which could be made up of friends, partners, or community members. Chosen Family Home Care was created to foster a welcoming environment, identify and build rapport, and be local advocates for all of the diverse members of the Philadelphia community. We connect our patients and caregivers to the right resources to achieve not just independence at home but also cultural understanding and deep community connections.

At Chosen Family Home Care, we also use the latest in health technology to maximize opportunities for communication between all members of our senior client’s care circles. We utilize effective oversight to ensure that we are in compliance with physician orders, and that our care plans are being properly carried out.

As owner and CEO of the home care agency, I also promise to you my direct involvement in your loved ones care. Plus, I will always make myself available for feedback and improvements in our caregiving service. I look forward to working with you and your loved one on creating a care plan that is perfectly suited to the senior family’s needs. Thank you for considering Chosen Family Home Care as your community and caregiving partner.

Chosen Family Home Care’s Goals

Our goal is to enable seniors and care recipients to live independent and productive lives in their own homes for as long as safely possible. The Chosen Family Home Care team does this by providing services with compassion. We employ not only the most experienced caregiving team in the market, but also those that best match with the client. For example, it could be based on culture, personality, language, and preferences or a combination of these.

We provide optimal care by working closely with families on home care assistance design. The agency carefully considers the suggestions of senior loved ones for improvements to home care provided.

With an eye towards continuous improvement, we also leverage the latest in healthcare technology to ensure consistent communication between Chosen Family Home Care and our senior client’s family. Also, this communication occurs between the client and the Philadelphia community at large. It is our aim to act as thought leaders and educators for issues concerning the health and well-being of our elders and others requiring assistance to maintain an independent lifestyle.
