Aide Support

“It has been a pleasure working for COHME  Inc. for the past five years. They have  done so much for me. I have only good  things to say about my employer.”

Social Services for Aides

Most home care agencies undergo high attrition—an average of up to 65% each year. At COHME, we retain 74% of our health aides from year to year. This number supports the basis of our philosophy and founding mission: that happier, supported aides provide superior and sustainable care.

We get to know our aides personally—not just as our workers but as our clients, too. We understand that a more stable, satisfied, and dedicated staff leads to even better care for our clients. A social-work career specialist on staff is an advocate for COHME’s caregivers. She helps the aides with practical problems and needs, as well as serving as a resource for furthering their education and career advancement.
