CareMates, Inc. was founded by Marian Bellucci, a Licensed
Clinical Social Worker and Registered Nurse. Ms. Bellucci worked in
the health care field for over 30 years, the majority of which were focused
specifically on home care. Following her nursing degree and her Master of
Social Work at Kings County Nursing School and New York University,
respectively, Ms. Bellucci went on to achieve her Master of Business
Administration at Baruch College Zicklin School of Business. In addition
to field work as as a nurse and a clinician, Ms. Bellucci spent many years in
administration at several different large home care agencies.
In 2002 when Ms.
Bellucci founded CareMates, Inc., her goal was
to provide quality in-home services to the residents of the Staten Island
community with a hands-on, personal touch. CareMates, Inc. is licensed to provide services in all five boroughs of New York City as well as Suffolk county, however our roots are deeply planted in Staten Island, where Ms. Bellucci started her family and her long career in the home care industry. Ms. Bellucci felt that she
set herself apart from other local agencies by meeting and
monitoring each client and employee herself. By hand tailoring each
case through personal involvement, Ms. Bellucci believed that CareMates, Inc. differentiates itself from other competitors in
the Home Care Services industry. This philosophy has adhered itself to the
core foundation of our company and is something in which we still
take great pride, even though Marian is no longer with us.
