HouseWorks to partner with leading brands Companions, Homemakers & Companions Forever

BOSTON—HouseWorks Holdings, LLC (the company), a personal care services platform serving the northeast, announces that it has acquired the Connecticut Personal Care Division (brands Companions and Homemakers, LLC. and Companions Forever, LLC.) of AccordCare, a national provider of homecare and certified home health. With this acquisition, HouseWorks enters Connecticut, expanding the company’s geographic footprint while offering compelling opportunities for future growth. Most importantly, this will provide Medicaid and dual-eligible clients access to HouseWorks’ BetterCare at HomeTM model.

“Welcoming the Companions and Homemakers and Companions Forever teams to HouseWorks is incredibly exciting,” said HouseWorks Chief Executive Officer, Mike Trigilio. “The opportunity to add both Connecticut brands’ deeply talented and experienced team members and market-leading reputation to our enterprise gives us confidence we will continue to change how health care is delivered within the home.”

The Connecticut Personal Care Division was originally established by AccordCare through its legacy acquisition of Companions Forever in December 2020, followed by the acquisition of Companions and Homemakers completed in October 2022. Both will retain their branding within their regional footprint when joining the HouseWorks’ family of companies. Combined, they are the largest provider of Medicaid homecare services in the state.

“The Connecticut division was brought together to deliver exceptional care in a state so desperate for high-quality providers,” said Brandon Ballew, CEO of AccordCare, “and we believe they will be able to continue that mission with the HouseWorks team.”

The acquisition marks the company’s entrance into Connecticut and the fifth completed transaction since the company’s partnership with InTandem Capital in December 2022. This acquisition continues to demonstrate HouseWorks’ commitment to deliver high-quality personal care to many diverse communities. 

“We recognize that homecare is a deeply personal experience, and we have a unique opportunity to positively impact communities across the country,” said Trigilio. “We have been actively looking to expand into Connecticut and couldn’t be more enthusiastic with the people, culture and operations found within the Connecticut teams.”

TripleTree, LLC served as the financial advisor to AccordCare for this transaction.
