A Message From The CEO

Amy NelsonAs we enter a new year, we are excited about where we are going and what we are doing as a company. We aren’t here just to get our jobs done and stay under the radar. It’s about providing genuine care and improving lives of our clients. In the office, we are working to improve processes and accountability so we can be as efficient as possible, and ultimately push the boundaries in healthcare.  

We value all of our employees who have worked hard to make Accurate Home Care what it is today. Everything we do is for the purpose of making the company run more efficiently so we are able to put our best foot forward when looking at the big picture of the future of Accurate. We are very happy about the staff we have, and believe we have put ourselves in a position to thrive and provide the best customer service experience to our employees, clients, and referrals.

Accurate Home Care Adopts A Family

Adopt a family sp

Accurate Home Care employees have made it an annual tradition to participate in Adopt a

Family program through the county. Although local counties dropped the program this year,

we still wanted to be able to make a difference in a family’s Christmas.

 

Through a friend of a friend scenario, we were able to find a family that could use some help

during the holidays this year. Accurate employees embraced the holiday spirit again this

year, and donated gifts for this family of five. Great job to all the employees who donated

toys, clothes, gift cards, and more to do everything we can to make a lasting impact as the

four kids and their mother open them this Christmas!

Options in Health Care

Accurate Home Care Home Nursing EducationNicoleen Panelist Manager,Nicoleen Meyer spoke as a panelist earlier this week at Anoka Ramsey Community College. The College's first ever Nursing Leadership Panel was made up of nursing leadership representatives from various organizations in the community including hospitals, home care agencies, county workers, and more. The panel spoke to students who are graduating this week with their 2­year degrees in nursing studies. The panelists discussed their nursing career paths and how they got to a place of leadership in their respective healthcare fields.

Working together for a better outcome:

MW 002Accurate Home Care Director of Home Care Nursing, Megan White was recently asked to speak to Anoka County CADI (Community Alternatives for Disabled Individuals) and CAC (Community Alternative Care) case managers and the program manager at their Lunch and Learn. CADI and CAC are waivers which provide funding for home and community-based services for children and adults. 

Partnering with counties and organizations in the communities that we serve helps us stay connected, and it benefits everyone involved—most importantly, patients in need of services. As a company, we make it a priority to be an industry-wide resource and support to the communities we serve and beyond. 

Inspiration for All

Ethan OchEthan Och, a senior at Swanville High School, and an Accurate Home Care patient, isn’t letting a muscle disease stop him from shining. His personality, work ethic, and overall great attitude are exemplary. His principle, teachers, nurses, and parents all agree that Ethan is something special. The things that he accomplishes would already be amazing, but he takes it to the next level: using his abilities and achievements to help others. However inspirational all of Ethan’s attributes are, the most is arguably his selflessness.

Representative Nick Zerwas Visit

Representative Nick Zerwas Visit 11 9 15The Accurate Home Care Executive Management Team recently hosted Minnesota House Representative Nick Zerwas for a meet and greet at our Headquarters in Otsego, Minnesota. Zerwas took time to sit down and discuss home care specifically, Minnesota healthcare in general, and legislation relating to both.

He spoke about the need for higher spend down limits through Medical Assistance, and the difficulty getting people on board due to high costs. Although everyone wants MA to go up, it’s too expensive to raise it by large increments. It was raised 5% last legislative session (costing $86 million per year), bringing it up to 80%, but Zerwas’ goal is ultimately to see it raised to 100%.
