About this job

JourneyCare Home Health, formally Addus Home Health, was founded over 40 years ago. A lot has changed since then but our core objective remains the same: providing great care for the elderly, disabled, and chronically ill, especially those who are at risk of hospitalization or institutionalization.

We started out as a home cleaning service and then began providing chore services to Chicago’s at-risk elderly population through a contract with the city. In 2016, Addus refined its strategy to focus on growth in the states in which we have a current presence while adding clinical care services to our offerings. We now provide personal care to over 42,000 patients while providing home health and hospice services to over 3,600 patients. We now have 210 offices in 22 states.

We know that to be a great home care company, we must have great employees. Our staff is a group of engaged, energized, and compassionate employees who take ownership of the care and service they deliver each day to our patients. That’s what we believe the home care business is all about.
