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.
