Accreditation by Home Care
Alliance of Massachusetts

Our client families want and deserve many things from a home care agency. But how can they know that the agency they choose will deliver on its promises? Until the Massachusetts legislature passes a licensure bill, the only standard for services is accreditation by the Home Care Alliance of Massachusetts.  All fifteen of the standards of HCA must be met in order to achieve accreditation. In sum, HCA accreditation is the strongest available endorsement of


  • high quality care
  • ethical business practices
  • fair treatment of employees

Visiting Angels of Newton/Canton was one of the first agencies in the state to earn HCA accreditation. 

Each Visiting Angels agency is a franchise that is independently owned and operated. The Franchisor, Living Assistance Services Inc., does not control or manage the day to day business operations of any Visiting Angels franchised agency.
