Easterseals NH has merged with Rochester-based The Homemakers Health Services effective September 1, 2018. According to a statement, the programs housed in Rochester—in-home medical and non-medical care, as well as a facility-based adult day program, will officially fall under the Easterseals NH umbrella of services.
“The Homemakers Health Services has been providing medical adult day and homecare services in Strafford County for 30 years,” says Easterseals NH President and CEO Larry Gammon. “We are confident this merger will result in a stronger network of services for seniors and others in New Hampshire and look forward to welcoming our new employees and clients to the Easterseals NH family.”
As part of the merger, Easterseals NH will continue to offer in-home care and the facility-based adult day program at 215 Rochester Hill Road in Rochester to clients throughout Strafford, Carroll, and Rockingham Counties.
Easterseals NH has operated an award-winning adult day program in Manchester for more than 40 years and an in-home care program since 1996. The combination of the two organizations, each with vast experience in the senior care field, will provide increased capacity with more than 250 staff serving more than 350 seniors, adults with disabilities, and veterans.
“This merger will allow us to strengthen and expand services in Rochester so that we are able to better serve neighbors in our community,” says Jean Lanciano, Homemakers Health Services, interim executive director/operations director. “Easterseals brings a long and successful history to the merger and we are happy to move forward as a single organization.”
