Carney Hospital has partnered with Total- Care, LLC, a Roxbury-based company to provide eligible patients access to home care services.

The goal of this partnership is to increase access to preventative healthcare services for members of our community who are most vulnerable and to reduce hospital readmissions.

“Carney’s partnership with TotalCare is another step forward in caring for our patients, with compassion and respect, in the communities where they live.

This partnership will only serve to improve health outcomes for Boston’s most diverse neighborhoods by bringing support services into their homes,” said Carney Hospital President Walter Ramos.

TotalCare provides complete home care to eligible patients who require daily assistance with multiple personal care tasks. TotalCare’s staff of trained healthcare professionals provide nurse monitoring, medication assistance, companion care, personal care assistance, house cleaning, and meal preparation up to seven days a week. These services are provided free of charge for members of MassHealth. Carney Hospital’s case management staff will identify eligible patients upon discharge and refer them to TotalCare to receive home care services.

“I am thankful for our Board Chairman J. Keith Motley and Board Member Reverend William Dickerson for their assistance in bringing forth this partnership opportunity with a minority- owned business that will expand services to our community,” said Ramos.

“TotalCare is honored to join in partnership with Carney Hospital to provide services to a very diverse community in Boston and the surrounding area. We are very excited to put our boots on the ground and work in this great community with Carney”, said Eleanor Chalmus spokesperson for TotalCare.
