The Home Care Alliance of MA is planning a special afternoon to honor and showcase the best people and programs in our industry today at a gala celebration of innovation and excellence on Tuesday, April 29, at the historic John F. Kennedy Library.  

This event offers member agencies two opportunities to shine:

  1. Nominate a program, product, or operational change that has either a) enhanced the well-being of patients, clients, or the community, b) driven efficiency in operations or the health care system, or c) enhanced the productivity or satisfaction of agency staff.
  2. Nominate an employee or homecare supporter for a STAR Award. These awards celebrate the exceptional accomplishments of the everyday heroes in our midst who make incredible differences in the lives of their patients/clients and their families. Though there are too few opportunities to recognize all who deserve one, a STAR award brings with it some well-deserved recognition for both the agency and the individual.

Nominations may be made by Alliance agencies, their patients, or their partner organizations.  Download & complete the nomination form to let the world know about your best & brightest. The deadline to submit your nominations has been extended to March 14, 2014.

Innovations Showcase & Star Awards Postponed

April 16, 2013

Given the events in Boston yesterday — and with the streets around the Revere Hotel closed as of this writing — the Alliance is postponing tomorrow’s awards ceremony.  Between the logistical challenges and the somber mood of the whole city, we feel it would be difficult and inappropriate to celebrate.

We are busy rescheduling the event and will notify everyone as soon as we have a new date and a location secured.  Our thoughts and prayers go to the victims and their families.
