Careforce is a home health care agency, serving clients and their families from Windsor to Bridgetown, Nova Scotia. We are an approved provider for Veterans Affairs Canada, the Workers' Compensation Board, and most insurance companies.
Careforce has been operating in the Annapolis Valley since 1990, and has grown from a small private company into the thriving worker cooperative our clients know today. In 2006, Careforce's owner/operator decided it was time to move on from the business. Although there were many possibilities, a group of motivated employees (including caregivers, administrative, and nursing staff) banded together, pooled their resources and decided to try and buy the business. Nearly two years later, with assistance from the Canadian Worker Cooperative Federation and iNova Credit Union, the Careforce Home Care Worker Cooperative was born.
What does that mean? It means that Careforce isn't owned by a single person, or even a small partnership of people. Instead, it is owned and operated by a large (and growing) group of employees. In fact, many of the caregivers our clients see in their homes every day are not just employees, but also owners of the business. They help make key management decisions, share in the profit of the business, and ensure we enjoy success together. The quality of service our clients have come to appreciate happens - in large part - because our employees have a direct stake in our success. Pretty cool story, huh?
Since becoming a worker cooperative, Careforce has continued to be recognized and has played a growing role in the community. We are proud to have received the Eastern Kings Chamber of Commerce Outstanding New Business Award in 2010, and the Annapolis Valley Chamber of Commerce's 'Best in Kings' award in 2014. We are proud to be members in good standing with the Better Business Bureau, and we now have an office in Kentville.
A community where every person has the opportunity, means, and support to live comfortably and safely for as long as possible.
