Formed in 1898, LifeCare Alliance is central Ohio’s first in-home health care agency, Ohio’s first agency to provide visiting nurses, and the nation’s second agency to deliver Meals-on-Wheels. LifeCare Alliance is a not-for-profit organization that provides a comprehensive array of health and nutrition services to older adults and medically challenged or homebound residents of central Ohio through its signature programs: Meals-on-Wheels, Senior Dining Centers, Wellness Centers, Help-at-Home, Visiting Nurses, the Columbus Cancer Clinic, Project OpenHand-Columbus, Groceries-to-Go, IMPACT Safety and Senior Pet Care. The Agency’s mission is to lead the community in identifying and delivering health and nutrition services to meet the community’s changing needs.
LifeCare Alliance has emerged as a national leader in merger collaborations, having successfully completed five in the last ten years with Meals-on-Wheels of Madison and Marion Counties, Project OpenHand-Columbus, the Columbus Cancer Clinic and IMPACT Safety. These mergers have eliminated or reduced costs and the redundancy of services in central Ohio, resulting in more funds for programs, enhanced services and an increase in client access to basic needs.
LifeCare Alliance has begun several social entrepreneurship endeavors to provide added funding for our clients, including L.A. Catering, meal sales, corporate wellness programs, immunizations and travel vaccines.
