Expert Guidance from Our Home Care Consultants
We are the largest home care consulting company in the industry. We’ve worked with home care agency startups in every state and guarantee our home care business startup process. There is no better company to work with in starting your very own Home Care Business.
And we have Results that Prove Our Success
Established in 1995, our consulting company has been in business for more than 20 years!
We have assisted well over 5000 home health care business startups.
Our Home Care Business Startup Process guarantees that you will get all the licenses required in your state, without having to spend your time and energy in this rather complicated process.
By taking advantage of our services, you will be leveraging our familiarity with state-specific regulations pertaining to the non-medical home care business.
Non-medical home care businesses are also encouraged to apply for accreditation from established healthcare organizations, such as the Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC) and Community Health Accreditation Program (CHAP). Applying for accreditation from these organizations can give your business a much-needed reputation boost, and can even be profitable in the long run.
The most obvious benefit of being ACHC- or CHAP-Accredited is that you can receive payment from Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries. Another benefit is that accredited agencies will always be perceived to be more credible and trustworthy than non-accredited ones. Many young adults will often compare several nearby agencies before entrusting their aging parents or relatives to an agency, and they will consider your accreditations before making a decision.
We’re proud to employ a team of 50 full-time employees, all with specific fields of expertise.
We have 8 Masters-Prepared Registered Nurses on staff. Among these Registered Nurses is our CEO, Rosina McFadden, a former Senior CHAP (Community Health Accreditation Program) Accreditation Site Surveyor of 15 years.
She pioneered New York’s Long Term Home Health Care Program, which has become the model for home care as we know it today.

Let Us Help You Start Your Own Non-Medical Personal Care Business!
Our new Home Care Agency startup program begins with helping you choose the business entity that will best fit your needs (Sole proprietor, Partnership, Limited Liability Company, S Corporation, C Corporation).
We then complete and file the required documentation, obtain a Federal Employer Identification Number (EIN) from the IRS. We will also obtain a NPI number for you. We will then register your business with the Secretary of State in your state. We complete the paperwork requirements for your state license.
The recent and ongoing changes to licensing standards and regulatory requirements can make the startup process challenging. At 21st Century, we simplify the process and make it easy for you to understand. You provide us the application information, and we do the rest. Each state will have different certification requirements and processes.
This includes an in-depth description of planned operational policies, as well as the resumes and documentation of prospective employees’ professional licensing and criminal background screening. When you receive your license application in a binder it will be easy to submit to your state for approval.
Our core personnel are former ACHC and CHAP Accrediting Body surveyors. We train your staff to eliminate home care accreditation deficiencies and pass their home care accreditation site survey inspection.
Along with working with all three accrediting bodies, our preferred partner ACHC has pre-approved our policies and procedures. This alleviates any procedural issues during accreditation surveys. They also are feature presenters at our education and training seminars and offer exclusive discounts to our clients.
ACHC, the Accreditation Commission for Health Care
CHAP, the Community Health Accreditation Partners
JCAHO, the Joint Commission
We complete an ON-SITE Mock home care accreditation audit at your location. This on-site audit includes a complete review of your Agency’s operations. Our Mock auditing procedures are similar to what the Home Care Accreditation Site Surveyor will be requiring when they survey your agency for Private Duty Certification.
Marketing can be an area that’s overlooked when planning to operate a home care startup. However, effective marketing is essential when growing your business and spreading the word. 21st Century provides a fully customized website, complete with search engine optimization (SEO), tailored specifically for your home care business.
