Happy Holidays!

Thank you to everyone who has helped make this holiday season filled with cheer! We are so proud of our generous employees who are happy to put others before themselves. This year our Moline and Peoria offices donated to Toys for Tots, the Fargo office donated household and winter items to Churches United for the Homeless, and our Otsego office donated gifts for Adopt a Family through Interfaith Outreach.

As Accurate Home Care nears our 15th anniversary next month, we are proud to have so many employees who are still living out the values that the company was started on. Giving back to people in need and investing in local communities are top priorities that are still being shown by Accurate employees.

Although the industry of home care is all about keeping families together in the comfort of their homes and providing services that allow people to keep their independence, we hope to go one step further and show that we genuinely care for the people we serve. This is not possible without our wonderful staff!

We look forward to continued growth and improvement in 2017 as we always strive to provide the best possible service to all audiences—including clients, employees, and referral sources. From all of us here at Accurate Home Care, we hope you and yours have had a wonderful holiday season, and wish you a happy and safe New Year’s celebration! 

Warm and Fed Charity Event

Group PhotoThis year, Accurate Home Care sponsored our 4th Warm and Fed High School Challenge. This was the 4th annual event that is a competition between Twin Cities high schools to see who can raise the most donations. The school that brings in the most donated warm clothing and non-perishable food items wins a pep rally put on by the Minnesota Vikings.

This year was the 3rd year in a row that Shakopee High School won the challenge, so they decided to take it one step further and donate their Vikings appearance to clients of the charitable organizations! Students from Shakopee High School’s LEAD group were joined at a private luncheon with MN Vikings players by Salvation Army families, as well as some Accurate Home Care client families! This year they raised over 2,500 donated items for people in need.

In the past four years, local high schools have raised over 40,000 cold weather and non-perishable food items for this challenge. We are very proud to have been involved with the Warm and Fed Challenge these past few years, and were overjoyed to be able to have some of our clients attend the luncheon this month!

Community Health Charities

Accurate Home Care was founded to benefit the communities it serves. Giving back to those in need has always been at the heart of what we do. Our employees continue to show this by generously donating money and time to great charitable causes—especially those which benefit the local communities we’re in. Many of our employees participate in our corporate charitable giving program, in addition to the various events and donation drives we do throughout the year.

Starting January 1st, 2017, we are changing the way we manage employee charity contributions. Going forward, all employee contributions will go through Community Health Charities. This will make it much easier for employees to choose specific charity organizations (both national and local) to donate to. There will also be many more volunteer opportunities, resources, and education through various charity organizations.

Creating A Rewarding Environment

Company Culture

We recently started an employee engagement workgroup called the CARE Committee. Our goal is to bring employees together and continue to develop and maintain company culture. CARE means Creating A Rewarding Environment, and that’s what we aim to do: foster a culture of togetherness and fun while making clients’ lives better. We want Accurate Home Care to be a place where employees enjoy working, are engaged with each other and the company, and are proud of being part of the team!

Engagement and overall culture can be a challenge in the home care industry. At times, it provides little interaction between employees, especially those working in the field. With office and field employees across the upper Midwest, it can be challenging to reach everyone at once.

However, we know it is important to provide opportunities for employees to build relationships with one another, and have a good time interacting outside of work. We are working diligently to provide these opportunities through activities and events in individual regions as well as company-wide!

AHC Selfie Challenge!

Accurate Employee Drawings

As a way to recognize hard work and encourage employees to pick up extra shifts, we introduced the Pick Up a Shift, and the Perfect Attendance contests back in April. For these contests, we entered Accurate employees who picked up extra shifts into drawings for a chance to win prizes! Every time an employee has picked up a shift or has had perfect attendance for a month, they have been entered into a monthly drawing for Accurate Rewards points.

Each region has also held quarterly drawings for bigger prizes including a $250 Visa gift card and fitness, Apple, and photography prize packages.

Many Accurate Home Care employees have been going above and beyond to help meet our patients’ needs. For the months of April through June, they picked up a total of 2,634 additional shifts! We thank all of our awesome employees for their hard work and dedication picking up extra shifts, having stellar attendance, and making Accurate Home Care a home health care provider of choice!
