Phoebe Ministries and Comforting Home Care Enter Partnership to Provide Home Services to Older Adults in Lehigh Valley

Allentown, Pa – Phoebe Ministries and Comforting Home Care announced a new partnership agreement on July 7, 2016 to provide the highest quality of in-home services to independent Phoebe residents and to people in the greater Lehigh Valley community.

Phoebe Ministries has been providing healthcare, housing, and support services to seniors since 1903. “At home care is now one more service we are able to offer to our residents and their families,” says Scott Stevenson, President and CEO of Phoebe Ministries. “It allows our independent living and personal care residents the resources to stay in their residences longer, and also streamlines care services and finances to ensure seamless care across the Phoebe continuum.”

“We are extremely excited for this partnership because Comforting Home Care provides paramount services and upholds values similar to those we at Phoebe feel are vital,” continues Stevenson. Comforting Home Care will begin using Comforting Home Care by Phoebe as their company name.

“We’re looking forward to bringing Phoebe’s health care leadership – specifically in the area of cognitive therapy for dementia – to people in their own homes,” says Margie Skibinski, RN, BSN, Founder of Comforting Home Care. She adds, “We are dedicated to providing compassionate care for our seniors and that fits beautifully with the Phoebe legacy.”

Comforting Home Care is a home care agency based out of the Lehigh Valley and serving Eastern Pennsylvania. The agency provides personal care assistance, homemaking, transportation, companionship, transitional care, 24 hour nursing care, care for those who are differently abled, and at home dementia and memory support care and cancer recovery.

The agreement marks the first time Phoebe has ventured into the field of home care services. Currently located in seven Pennsylvania counties and serving thousands of seniors annually, Phoebe features four continuing care retirement communities, eight affordable housing facilities, home and community-based services and two pharmacies.
