Mission

About CABS Health Network

Since 2020, CABS Health Network (CABSHN) is the market brand for CABS Home Attendants Service Inc., a licensed home care service agency established in 1979 to provide home care services to elderly and disabled Brooklyn residents, New York. CABS HAS one visible embodiment of a /long-term effort by its parent company, CABS Corporation, to create community-owned and controlled non-profit enterprises to provide essential services and employment opportunities for neighborhood residents.

Why a Health Network?

CABSHN takes a care-management approach to provide services for home care services. We have several clients with multiple chronic conditions, and we seek to support them to reduce hospitalization and other social determinants of health. Currently, CABSHN provides care management services, health promotion, referral, and assistance with access to community & social services as part of our home care services and outreach efforts, even though the Agency cannot bill for these services separately.

Changes in health care delivery expectations are making it more critical for healthcare organizations to approach care from a holistic standpoint. CABSHN has been evolving its service offerings and, in 2020, has started its Care Management Division. Also, the Agency has established several contracts with other medical providers to increase access to care for its clients—clinical and nursing services, therapy and rehabilitation solutions, medical equipment, and nutritional services. The Agency continues to incorporate robust and proven customer experience frameworks and technology to improve its quality of care, reaching clients at the right time and in the most appropriate places.

Because of its community orientation, CABS has a unique commitment and capability to provide service reflective of the needs and particular requirements of the communities it serves. CABS’ service philosophy, therefore, is to provide quality care with the maximum degree of sensitivity and understanding for each group or community served.
