“We want to congratulate Pathways on receiving the Best of Home Care Provider of Choice Award,” says Aaron Marcum, CEO and founder of Home Care Pulse. “Since this award is based on client feedback, it demonstrates their dedication to providing the highest quality of care with a focus on client satisfaction. We are pleased to recognize Pathways’s dedication to quality, professionalism and expertise in home care.”

Best of Home Care Provider of Choice award-winning providers have contracted with Home Care Pulse to gather feedback from their clients by conducting live phone interviews with their clients each month.

These award-winning providers have received the highest satisfaction scores from their clients in areas such as professionalism, services provided, compassion of caregivers and overall quality of care.

“This recognition by Home Care Pulse validates the dedicated service of our many health aides, certified nursing assistants and homecare aides, who every day help our patients with their activities of daily living, from personal care to companionship to home management,” said Pathways Vice President of Private Duty Nancy Ruma. “It will also help potential new clients see the value that Private Duty care from Pathways can bring to them and their loved ones as a trusted provider of home care services.”
