PCR acquired by TRPIL

Private Care Resources Inc. of Duncansville has been acquired by Transitional Paths to Independent Living of Washington, Pa.

“With the recent introduction of the Community HealthChoices program, and the transformation of how seniors and people with disabilities in Pennsylvania receive medical and long-term care services, a new strategy is needed,” Ann Bender, former owner of PCR said in a statement.

Founded in 2000, Private Care Resources Inc. was a state-licensed and Medicaid-certified home health agency that provided customized medical and non-medical care. PCR served a 16-county area in western Pennsylvania. Their mission was to allow individuals to remain safely and comfortably in the privacy of their own homes for medical, non-medical and/or Companion Care Services.

PCR has been rebranded as TRPIL Home Health, and its operations will be enriched by an infusion of the independent living philosophy, especially the concepts of consumer choice and control.

“The opportunity to become part of an energetic and growing organization like TRPIL was too good to pass up in this uncertain and changing health care landscape. TRPIL has a long track record in providing consumer-controlled, quality long-term care and supports,” Bender said.
