Annie’s Place is a professional health, home and community services collective that is locally owned & operated. We specialize in client-centered, custom services to meet the everyday needs of the individuals we serve.
Annie’s Place was formally launched by Lina Fronzo in 2017. The motivation behind starting Annie’s Place came from our own experiences, where we observed a need for a home care provider that was truly focused on the client. We operate with a social business model that is underpinned with a strong commitment of being an inclusive, living wage employer.
We are committed to giving back to the communities that we serve through various ways; such as: volunteering, community contributions, and providing health and wellness seminars and presentations. We also offer a discount program for cluster care or organizational contracts for service to generate a win-win solution for both parties.
In the early days of Annie’s Place, our team comprised of health care, community service, home care and human resource professionals who undertook research over a year and half to help us launch our business. For many of us, we are mid-career to end-of-career professionals in our respective fields and during our work, we kept coming back to the immense community value of generating a solution to the many gaps in the health care, social service, and other public systems that we work in to improve individuals and their family’s experiences of accessing care, improving quality of life, fully participating in community and reducing social isolation.
After this research phase of our story, we developed our mission. Annie’s Place has a mission to provide a continuum of health, home and personal support services that are customized through a co-created care plan with our clients to meet and adapt to our client’s and their family’s changing needs. We specialize in client-centered services that are relationship-based not just task-oriented, to provide the highest level of quality service and genuine care.
What we have recognized through the work that we do, is that we just haven’t written and recited our company’s values of relationship, respect and care – we live them every day. Most importantly, we will continue to live these out in pace, alongside our clients, their families and care teams. We have learned that we can go so much farther together than alone. We have not only delivered services but created a strong community, circles of support and a growing Annie’s Place family that includes our Staff team and the people and communities we serve. Our return has been received three-fold, to foster connections where there was loneliness, economic and social equity in place of struggle and overall well-being. For us, this is the triple-bottom line vision we are striving to achieve.
We work hard to help you!
