Caregiver Closes on First Acquisition in Ohio

(October 29, 2018 | Fort Worth, Tex) … Caregiver announced today that it has closed on the acquisition of the assets of the IDD business of Home Health Connection (HHC) of Ohio. HHC is a leading provider of residential, adult day and non-medical transport services to approximately 150 people in the Columbus area and several surrounding counties.  
HHC was formed in 1992 by owners Shawn and Shirine Mafi to provide services to individuals with developmental disabilities. Over the past 26 years the Mafis’ have expanded their services in IDD as well as growing a home health business that they will continue to operate separately from Caregiver. They have worked hard in developing HHC’s reputation for providing high quality people-centered services and have grown the business substantially.
The acquisition of HHC expands Caregiver into the Ohio market for the first time and establishes a platform business from which to grow within a key state.  Since its inception in 2015, Caregiver has built a reputation of acquiring companies with great reputations and outstanding leadership teams, and HHC fits right into that mold.  
Caregiver welcomes the HHC leadership team and approximately 340 employees to the Caregiver family, including Director Victoria Sekou-Mamadou, Senior Program Coordinator Mark Merriman, CFO Jean Jakovlic, and Billing Manager Stephanie Gordon.
Caregiver provides services and supports to people with disabilities in Texas, Tennessee and Indiana through Medicaid waiver programs. We own several brands including Daybreak Community Services, DSA of Indiana, Unified Care Group, River Gardens, and Omni Support Services.
