Acappella Franchising, L.L.C.
Acappella in Home Care is a licensed home care agency specializing in skilled nursing care for clients in their home or in the hospital. Jo Alch founded Acappella in 2005 after a 12 year career as a hospice nurse. Jo worked in all areas of hospice as a case manager, triage nurse, and admissions nurse. While in admissions, Jo found that most families did not realize that Medicare did not provide hourly care to clients, only hourly visits with no set schedule. Clients would ask her who she recommended, which gave her the idea to start a nursing service whose nurses and caregivers understand hospice. Acappella in Home Care provides RNs, LVNs, and CNAs in client’s homes. Not only does the agency work with hospice patients, but they do post-op care, well baby care, fertility injections, wound care, and IV infusions to name a few. With over 100 nurses and caregivers on staff, Acappella in Home Care prides ourselves with hiring the very best of the best. Jo Alch was selected as "One of the Great 100 Nurses" in 2007 by the Dallas Ft. Worth Hospital Council - Nurse Executive Forum and Texas Nurses Association Districts Three and Four because of her " superior contributions to the art and science of nursing and having upheld the high standards of the nursing profession" to the clients she serves.
