Caregiver Inc. — a provider of long term care services to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) — has expanded its Midwestern footprint with the acquisition of four operators in Indiana and Ohio.
Fort Worth, Texas-based Caregiver announced the deal Tuesday.
“We continue to support our mission of providing high quality supports to our individuals and local communities while making strategic investments in this underserved yet critical area of care”, Caregiver Chief Development Officer Gary Nettis said in a press release regarding the acquisitions.
In Indiana, Caregiver has closed on the purchase of Heartland International, which is based in the Indianapolis area. In Ohio, Caregiver has added Monroe-based Opportunities to Succeed, Mount Vernon-based Concepts In Community Living and Hope Homes of Richland County.
The four facilities consist of supported living sites, group homes, family supports and adult day services. The facilities, in total, serve 200 individuals and employ 300 workers.
In addition to Indiana and Ohio, Caregiver operates a number of other programs in Georgia, Tennessee and Texas.
“Caregiver is a different Long-Term Services and Supports provider – we are bringing LTSS services for people with disabilities into the twenty-first century by investing in our employees and investing in forward thinking technology,” Caregiver CEO Mark Lashley said in the press release. “Our investments are designed to greatly improve the quality of care to our vulnerable individuals.”
Caregiver is owned by WindRose Health Investors LLC, which purchased a stake of the company from DW Healthcare Partners and Council Capital in July 2020. Council Capital still retains an investment in Caregiver.
