The National Private Duty Association (NPDA), a group for private duty home care providers, has formed a Florida state chapter.

NPDA President Sheila McMackin said a large percentage of the nation’s private duty home care providers currently operate in Florida.

The nonprofit organization already represents more than 600 home care agencies in 44 states and Puerto Rico. McMackin said the Florida chapter will give this state’s private duty home care providers an opportunity to work cooperatively on important legislative issues, share resources with other agencies and participate in training and education programs.
Members are also to have access to industry news and information that could affect the way all agencies conduct business.

“Because of the many challenges facing the providers of private duty home care, it is becoming increasingly important for agencies to join together so that we can continue to improve the industry and protect the health and safety of consumers,” McMackin explained. “The NPDA promotes strong ethical standards and is dedicated to educating the public about private duty home care.”

The NPDA has scheduled informational meetings around the state for private duty home care agencies. In South Florida, there are sessions scheduled at 5 p.m.:

Oct 24, at Atlantis, 6026 Old Congress Road, in Lantana

Oct. 26, at The Sterling of Aventura, 2777 N.E. 183rd Ave., in Aventura

Nov. 7, at Summerville at Regency Residence, 5600 Lakeside Drive North, in Margate

To sign up for one of the informational sessions, call (866) 282-4823 or e-mail florida@ndparegistrations.com.
