No Guesswork - Fast Results - Guaranteed Success
We do the legwork for you when starting your home care business. You will never touch a legal document – we do it all for you. We will help you choose and setup your home care business structure on your behalf (Sole proprietor, Partnership, Limited Liability Company, S Corporation, C Corporation).
We will obtain the Federal Employer Identification Number for your home care business.
We will obtain an NPI number for your home care business.
We will complete all State filing requirements in your State and complete all the paperwork requirements necessary to start your home care business and obtain your State Home Care License. Some States refer to this license by different names, and some states have separate license requirements for non-medical home care and separately distinguish personal care, companion care, and similar but different non-medical home care services. We know the options and process of starting a home care business in each state, so don’t worry. WE GUARANTEE YOUR HOME CARE BUSINESS LICENSE!
Starting a home care business, especially when there is licensure and survey required, can become a daunting task. Let us take away all the guesswork and do it for you!
=We enroll our clients in state Medicaid
programs in select states, as part of our program.
This is very important. Home Care Policies & Procedures vary – they are not all created equal. Each State, Medicaid Program, Accrediting Body, etc. have their own set of standards to adhere to. It is important to distinguish every factor. Your home care business will not get far if your home care policies and procedures are not customized to meet these requirements. Please do not make a rookie mistake.
We guarantee your home care policies and procedures will meet all of the requirements necessary to provide home care services in your State, as well as guaranteeing your State Home Care License and Private Duty Accreditation should you choose to go that route (Medicare Accreditation only applies to Home Health Care Agencies – Call us for more information, we can help). Our home care policies and procedures are also completely customized for your home care agency and will include all your agency specific and relevant details. Franchise companies buy our home care policies and procedures manuals. These are top notch (thanks to our team) – and you can’t beat our guarantee.
Our home care policies and procedures are professionally designed, edited, printed and shipped to you in hard copy and USB in word and PDF format.
Literally, everything you need.
Including but not limited to one on one home care training, video training, and customized high-quality documents developing all aspects of your home care businesses human resource department. Literally, all the same documents we use to operate our own home care businesses (but customized for your home care business). Nothing is missing.
Does your home care agency need to become accredited once you are licensed? Well, it depends. Your home care license allows you to see patients, but how are you getting paid? If accreditation is preventing you from getting paid, or will prevent you from getting paid, this is the only time your home care business will need to achieve accreditation. If you are taking part in State Medicaid Programs or Managed Care Programs, they will most likely require you to be accredited, but this is not always the case, and especially not the case in most State when taking part in Medicaid Waiver Programs. Do not be duped into proceeding with an Accreditation you do not need if it does not interfere with your ability to get paid!
We are at the stage with our businesses that it makes sense for us to be accredited at all our locations, but this was not always the case. Our first business is was a private pay business, and our agency in Philadelphia is just now going through the process of accreditation after 6 years. Sometimes, your business model does not need Accreditation at all – every situation is going to be different.
If you decide to achieve Accreditation with CHAP or ACHC, don’t worry – We GUARANTEED your Accreditation too!
We almost literally hold your hand through the process of Accreditation, once again, completing every form and legal document on your behalf while coaching and walking you and your team throughout the Accreditation process.
For all clients proceeding with Medicare Accreditation, it is an absolute must that we visit you onsite to conduct a mock audit. For those clients achieving Private Duty Accreditation, preparation is provided via phone, email, or virtual meeting.

A word of caution about marketing and promises…
We are going to build you a beautiful website that gets the job done. It’s going to look great, and you’re going to have input. We even make sure that your website is found on Google, Yahoo, Bing, and every other search engine. But please listen, as this is very important – no one can guarantee you will be on the first page of Google unless you are paying Google Ads. We are a Google Partner Company. Certified Homecare Consulting appears on the first page for many relevant terms, and yes, there are ways to accomplish this, but this is a waste of time and money for a new home care business – we will explain.
You are going to meet a lot of people who tell you about “Marketing”, but please understand this, we are Google Partners and the owners of successful home care and home health care businesses – we are not just Google Certified as individuals, but actual Google Partners – no other home care franchise or consultant has this type of expertise and if they claim to, ask for proof – this is a very rare feat.
With that said, please listen very closely – SPEND MONEY ON YOUR MARKETER AND PAID ADVERTISING, but DO NOT WASTE MONEY ON anything related to the internet that is not directly related to generating leads. This means, aside from building out your website, do not waste money on SEO or marketers or consultants claiming SEO does anything for home care let alone a new home care business – it doesn’t. Not for home care.
We spend plenty of money on advertising at our home care agencies, we also have very good SEO and organic page ranking, but guess what? We track our advertising and know that nearly 100% of all internet leads for home care come from paid advertising, despite our businesses being on the first page of Google due to organic SEO. This is the case for Certified Homecare Consulting as well. We have a first page rank and top of page rank for nearly all our relevant keywords, but nearly 100% of our leads come from advertising.
So, remember, aside from your website, don’t waste your money on anything regarding your website and the internet that is not directly related to generating a lead. Don’t pay for organic SEO in the home care industry.
Google Places, Facebook, Google Ads, and referral sites in some markets – this is where you spend money online. The hard work and the real reward are earned face to face through grassroots, on the ground marketing to patients and referral sources. More on that later down our list – this is a big part of our program.
If you want to learn how to maximize your marketing spend on the internet and learn from an actual Google Partner Company, we will show you how we do it!

We are not a home care franchise and do not charge home care franchise or ongoing fees.
We provide you with everything you need to start a home care business and cut out everything you don’t. The home care franchise companies want to pretend they will give you free leads – they won’t.

Certified Homecare Consulting's Google Reviews
Other Home Health Care Consultants show you Google reviews from folks who only attended a training seminar, and in most cases, a free training seminar. It is a very dirty trick used to deceive you. They offer cheap or free trainings, take photos of the attendees, then ask all of the attendees to leave a Google review while still in the class. This is why our competitors reviews are in batches and mostly on the same day and time. Please do not waste your money with these home health care consultants – they have never owned or operated a home care or home health care business of their own.
There is no wonder why we have a 5 Star rating with nearly all our clients. When you choose Certified Homecare Consulting, you are choosing a company providing you with the same efforts, support, and services we provide to the very same agencies we own and operate. Here are what just a few of our clients have to say…
“Working with Certified Home Care Consulting and Steve Goss has been a tremendous blessing to my life and to my agencies, Quality Personal Care Inc. I have a great amount of knowledge in the Homecare industry but I would not have been able to expand as quickly as I have if I did not receive the expertise and help that I received from Certified Home Care Consulting!
Any Home Health Care, Home Care Agency, etc. looking to start a new agency or expand their existing agency, I highly recommend Certified Home Care Consulting. They are truly worth their weight in gold!
Be blessed, be bold, and be brilliant!”
Dr. Cedrick Spears, Owner, Quality Personal Care
“Our experience was unique; we were happy to have the guidance your team supplied. Not knowing the process and what to do or how to do it, we were lost in the beginning. Having the consulting service team working with us, we were able to complete what we set out to do. Thank you to everyone that helped us through the process.”
Barbara & Rose Talbot, Owners, Ample Care LLC
“We are just getting ready to open. Certified did a great job getting us up and ready to open. There are other companies like yours, but they are much more expensive. I am sure they can’t be as good as your company. I am very thankful I didn’t get sucked into a franchise. They want 35 to 50 thousand in franchise fees & they sell you air and zip codes with 20,000 people. If you want to expand then you pay another franchise fee. On top of that you pay them 5 to 6 per cent on gross sales forever.
I would advise anyone thinking of getting into this business to hire your firm.”
Bill Thrush, Owner, A Better Life Senior Care
I feel privileged to write a reference letter for Certified Homecare Consulting. Golden Age Home Health was not only pleased but also impressed with both the methodology approach and the quality of its consultants, as they guided us through the entire accreditation process. They were very thorough and flexible in developing a plan that met our needs and unique requirements. I was most impressed by Lorraine’s Consummate Business Technique & Mercy’s due diligence in not only explaining policy and clinical procedure but also for her patience and unwavering professional support! Last and indeed not the least I would like to extend a vote of thanks and appreciation to Laurie for your refined & professional approach while responding to queries regarding our Agency’s specific CHAP visitation. Golden Age benefited from your Clinical Acumen, and so will your other clients! Without a shadow of doubt, Certified Homecare Consulting is the way to GO!!!
Thuku Kamau, Chairman, Golden Age Home Health LLC
“I highly recommend Certified Home Care (CHC) to help with health care licensing. From day one, their staff has been very professional and more important knowledgeable regarding home health from a business and legal perspective. I have recommended CHC to several friends and others who are looking to start a home health care business.
Certified Home Care truly made the process of starting a home care business easier. Their strong team was always eager to help and guided me step by step. I am grateful for the partnership.”
Daniel Harris, Owner, Celestial Home Care Inc.
“My experience as a customer of Certified Homecare Consulting has been great, especially with the mock survey and clinical advice. I get responses to our clinical question immediately. Customer service is the best, everyone is professional and friendly. The Medicare certification process was excellent and less than one year after I started admitting patients I was certified with Medicare. I will continue having Certified Homecare Consulting do mock surveys for our agency, because when CHAP surveyed my agency, we did awesome. A Special Thanks to Starsha and Sue G for the amazing Mock survey.
If you ever in need of consultation I advise you to give them a call. As long you follow their advice you will do excellent too.”
Ruth Chabot, Owner, Uniting With You Home Care
“I want to personally take the time and thank the incredible individuals working at CHC for all their tireless assistance! It was an incredible experience from start to finish! I would highly recommend this company to anyone interested in starting a home care agency! You won’t regret it!”
Patrick Cadet, CEO, SPS Home Health Services, Inc.
“Certified Homecare Consulting has held our hand through the entire licensing and accreditation process from the very beginning. They made sure that we always felt comforted through what is otherwise an extremely stressful and uncertain time. Steve Goss assured us from the start that they would get us licensed to operate and kept his word the entire way. Terry and Chris spent countless hours on the phone with me, answering my million questions and educating me on how to operate this new business that I had no idea about. The level of care and attention they have given my company was immeasurably vital to successfully becoming licensed and passing my survey. I recommend this service to anyone who is nervous about opening a home care agency, because without them, I would not have had the guts, knowledge, or ability to do this on my own. Thank you, team!”
Kristina De-Levi, CEO, Home Assist Healthcare Services
“Thank you, Certified Homecare Consulting, for your support with starting up my business. Your staff has been amazing and wonderful during this process. You have a very professional and talented team of people, and it’s been a pleasure working with them. Your continued support is also very appreciated. Thank you!”
Shamila Saeed, CEO, My Care, LLC
“I had a great experience with Certified Homecare throughout the whole certification process. The entire knowledgeable team was helpful walking me through the whole process. I couldn’t have asked for more in a team of consultants.”
Stephen Wanjira, Owner, Afya Home Care LLC Lawrence, MA
I wanted to take a moment to Thank you, Terri and Starsha for your thorough and professional approach. Each of you were very knowledgeable, approachable and a pleasure to work with. Each of us at Harborside agree that the money was well spent as the mock survey process and documented results have assisted us in preparing for our survey. Thank you”
Sylvie Hornor, RN Clinical Service Director, Harborside Hospice, LLC
“If you ever in need of consultation I advise you to give them a call. As long you follow their advice you will do excellent too.”
Shannon McDuffie, CEO, Diamond Home Care of VA
