Phoebe Ministries of Allentown has partnered with a Bethlehem-based home care firm to provide Phoebe’s in-home care services, a move that the organization said “brings in the experts” and will ultimately allow Phoebe to expand services and make them available to more people.
Under the new partnership, Comforting Home Care has taken over what had been Phoebe At Home services, which has served elderly clients in the regions surrounding Phoebe’s Allentown and Berks County campuses.
Alice Donlan, executive director of rehabilitation and outreach for Phoebe, said the new entity will be known as Comforting Home Care by Phoebe.
Under the leadership of Comforting Home Care, Phoebe will be able to extend such nonskilled nursing home services to clients in its Richland Township campus region and other areas throughout the Greater Lehigh Valley, Donlan said.
“This really allows Phoebe to have the ability and the resources to reach further out in our community to provide care in clients’ homes,” she said.
Comforting Care 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.
