Accreditation and Awards

Home care agency accredited by Home Care Alliance of Massachusetts

Accreditation by Home Care Alliance of Massachusetts

Potential clients and their families are looking for the best home care providers for themselves or loved-one. One of the trusted sources used to rate services is the Home Care Alliance of Massachusetts (HCA). Until the Massachusetts legislature passes a licensure bill, accreditation by HCA ensures quality care. All 15 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 Newton/Canton was one of the first agencies in the state of Massachusetts to earn HCA accreditation. 


Best of Home Care Awards

The national client satisfaction survey firm Home Care Pulse calls clients and caregivers quarterly to rate home care agencies nationwide. As in previous years, Visiting Angels Newton/Canton has received several awards. 

Choosing a “Leader in Excellence” means choosing one of the best home care providers in the
nation—as rated by clients and caregivers in third-party satisfaction interviews.

Best of Home Care – Leader in Excellence is the highest award a home care provider can earn from
Home Care Pulse, an independent satisfaction research firm. “Leader in Excellence” is awarded based on
client and caregiver satisfaction ratings collected by Home Care Pulse in telephone interviews. Recipients
of this award represent the top 4-5% of providers participating in the Home Care Pulse Satisfaction
Management Program. These home care providers have proven that they provide quality care in nearly
every satisfaction category measured by Home Care Pulse. Leaders in Excellence have also qualified for
the Best of Home Care® Provider of Choice and Best of Home Care® Employer of Choice awards.


The Boston Globe Top Places to Work Award

Visiting Angels Newton/Canton has been named one of the Top Places to Work in Massachusetts in the employee-based survey project from The Boston Globe. 

Top Places to Work recognizes the most admired workplaces in the state voted on by the people who know them the best—their employees. The survey measures employee opinions about their company’s direction, execution, connection, management, work, pay and benefits, and engagement.

The rankings in the Top Places to Work are based on confidential survey information collected by Energage (formerly WorkplaceDynamics), an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention, from nearly 75,060 individuals at 334 Massachusetts organizations. The winners share a few key traits, including offering progressive benefits, giving their employees a voice, and encouraging them to have some fun while they’re at it.


Visiting Angels Newton/Canton is honored to have received these awards and accreditation. We look forward to serving our clients and employees for years to come!

Whether you are looking for home care services for a loved one, or a caregiver looking to join the best home care agency in the area, we love to hear from you!
