ACCREDITED HOME CARE NAMED ONE OF THE MOST INFLUENTIAL
FAMILY-OWNED BUSINESSES IN LOS ANGELES
Woodland Hills, Calif. (November 5, 2019) — Accredited Home Care, celebrating 40 years of success as one of California’s leading home care providers, has been named by the Los Angeles Business Journal as one of 2019’s Most Influential Family-Owned Businesses in Los Angeles.
“Taffy and I are honored to be named to this distinguished group of family-owned businesses,” noted Accredited founder and owner Barry Berger. “This recognition validates Accredited’s commitment to provide the finest patient care and career growth opportunities for our employees, and to keep home care affordable and accessible.”
The latest accolade follows Accredited being named among the “Best Places to Work throughout California” just a few weeks ago by Forbes Magazine.
Since opening their business back in 1980, Barry and Taffy Berger have expanded Accredited from a modest, single location start-up into what it is today: one of the largest privately-owned home care providers west of the Mississippi, with seven offices employing more than 4,000 Californians.
“In an industry that’s become increasingly automated and backed by venture capital, I am proud of the meaningful relationships we’ve built the old-fashioned way… through face-to-face meetings and having our nurses available to answer patient calls at midnight,” Berger continued. “Although it certainly plays its part, technology alone isn’t the answer… having a powerful app isn’t enough to succeed in our industry.”
Mr. Berger has dedicated his career to making home care services readily available to Californians who, in growing numbers, have voiced their preference to age in place. As a longstanding contributor to patient advocacy campaigns in Sacramento, he served as board chair of the California Association for Health Services at Home and was presented the 2010 Lois C. Lillick Award for his lifetime contributions to the home care industry.
According to the Los Angeles Business Journal, family-owned businesses account for 90% of American companies today. Their prevalence speaks to the positive impact family leadership has on customers. Additionally, family-owned businesses, such as Accredited Home Care, are largely considered to be more stable, trustworthy and customer-friendly.
