GREENWICH, CT and LIBERTY LAKE, WA – Great Point Partners’ (“GPP”) portfolio company, Family Resource Home Care (“FRHC”), the leading provider of in-home caregiving services in the Pacific Northwest, announced today the acquisitions of Adeo In Home Care and Helping Hands Home Care – two of the largest, independently owned agencies in Oregon. The purchases signal a strategic move in the state by FRHC, with the Company now covering 79% of the population. The acquisitions are part of FRHC’s plan to continue expanding its share of the Pacific Northwest private duty home care market. The addition of Adeo and Helping Hands bring the Company’s total locations to 24 in three adjoining states.
“With Adeo and Helping Hands, we have advanced our goal of serving all major metropolitan markets in the Pacific Northwest,” said Jeff Wiberg, FRHC CEO. “The depth and breadth of our coverage positions us well to partner with large hospitals, health systems and post-acute providers.”
“After 15 years of serving thousands of seniors in Oregon, I was ready to join forces with a likeminded company,” said Kevin Call, Founder of Adeo In Home Care. “In FRHC, we found the ideal partner that can provide the resources for growth and alignment with Adeo’s core values and culture.”
“I believe FRHC and Helping Hands share best practices and the mission of enhancing the lives of Oregonians by providing compassionate, world-class care,” said Toby Forsberg, owner of Helping Hands. “I believe together we can achieve bigger and broader goals that benefit all stakeholders involved.”
