Liberty Lake-based home care provider merges with Seattle company

UPDATED: Thu., Nov. 8, 2018

From staff reports

Spokane-based Family Home Care has merged with a Seattle company in a move that will create what the companies say is one of the largest home care providers in the nation.

The merger with Family Resource Home Care was completed Thursday, according an announcement by the local company. The combined operations will keep the Family Resource Home Care name. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The merger creates a company with more than 750 employees in eight offices across Washington and Idaho that presently serve a total of 1,000 clients. The companies said they will merge common functions, including management, branding, sales and marketing, accounting and finance, human resources and training programs.

“There is a rapidly growing number of older adults in the United States and 90 percent of them want to live at home for as long as they can,” Family Resource CEO Jeff Wiberg said. “This merger provides us with the collective resources to help a larger number of people realize that goal and to scale in ways that meet the industry’s growing demand for quality home care.”

The merger will allow the Family Resource to expand operations into Oregon, Utah, Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico and Nevada, according to the release.

Family Resource says it is among largest independent providers of home care services based in the Pacific Northwest and one of the largest in the United States. In Washington, the company has offices in Liberty Lake, Seattle, Tacoma, Bellevue, Spokane and Kennewick. Idaho offices are in Boise and Moscow.

Family Home Care was founded in 1966 as part of Empire Health Services.
