Andy and Kathy Leclaire split a milkshake at Yankee Candle Village. They took the trip to celebrate their 39th – and final – wedding anniversary. 

Andy and Kathy Leclaire knew exactly what they wanted to do for their 39th – and final – wedding anniversary in October. They hoped to visit Yankee Candle Village. Located in Deerfield, Massachusetts, about 30 miles south of their home in Brattleboro, Vermont, the trip may have been simple a few years ago, but would now require a team effort.

In February of 2014, Andy received a diagnosis of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (otherwise known as ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease). Since then, he and his wife Kathy have focused on enjoying the time they have left together, and making new memories. In March of 2015, as his ALS progressed, the family called BAYADA Hospice to address his quality of life and help ease his pain and symptoms.

BAYADA  President and Founder Mark Baiada and BAYADA Director Ann Baiada are joined by NJ Senator Diane Allen, Moorestown Mayor Victoria Napolitano, and Moorestown community and business leaders for a pre-construction tour of the company’s new headquarters in the historic John Buzby house at 1 West Main Street in Moorestown.

In 1982, BAYADA Home Health Care President Mark Baiada moved the company’s headquarters from Philadelphia to Moorestown, a quaint, picturesque community in southern New Jersey. Over the years, even as the company has grown from one office in 1975 to nearly 300 offices in 21 states, the headquarters remained in a small, unassuming office.

Now, Mark and BAYADA Director Ann Baiada are thrilled to call a historic property in the heart of the town’s thriving and charismatic Main Street home for the new headquarters office.

BAYADA Client Betsy Way and BAYADA Therapist Tracey Freed are featured in WGAL-TV reporter Brian Roche's story about the little-known Medicare home health benefit. Mrs. Way used this benefit to help her return home from the hospital sooner and continue her recovery in the comfort of her own home.

Edo Banach, a former official with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, states that only 10% of eligible patients use the Medicare home health benefit. "In this country, there is still an institutional bias that if you need care you go to a building to get care in that building."

After 15 days in the hospital, Mrs. Way was happy to be home again. "I'm in my element here."
