Ecumen Expands Its Home Care Services with Acquisition of Covenant Companies


Ecumen has expanded its Ecumen At Home-Twin Cities home care operations with the acquisition of Covenant Companies in Coon Rapids.

“This acquisition is integral to our mission of creating home for older adults wherever they choose to live,” said Kari Everson, executive director of Ecumen at Home. “Another valuable benefit of this acquisition is that our Twin Cities home care service is now Medicare-certified, which opens a new seamless service option for our customers.”

“This certification allows us to serve people in their homes who are transitioning from a hospital stay or otherwise require care covered by their Medicare benefit,” Everson said. “It also allows us to provide therapy services as well as other Medicare coverable services in our Ecumen housing communities throughout the Twin Cities. This creates more ease and convenience for our customers.”

Everson said research shows that the vast majority of people want to remain in their homes as long as possible as they age, and Ecumen is committed to continued development of its home care services to meet this need.
