Who is your business inspiration & why? 


Patricia Huber, owner of the agency, is the inspiration for all of our 500+ employees.  Pat started the agency 28 years ago as she was growing dissatisfied with the care that her parents were receiving from a local home care agency.  When Pat called to complain to that agency’s owner about the substandard care her parents were receiving, the owner replied “If you don’t like the care your parents are receiving find another agency,” Pat, who was teaching a home health aide program as a registered nurse did just that and opened the doors to Better Home Health Care.


What is your biggest challenge in this industry (aside from parking) and how do you overcome it? What is your biggest payoff?


Our challenge is finding enough staff to take care of all of the patients in need.  As our population grows and ages, it is going to need quality homecare.  It’s up to us to continue to bring in qualified personnel to handle the demands of this increasing population.  With our in-house training program and our wonderful staff (who refer friends & family all the time) we hope to be able to keep up with growing demand for excellence in home care.  We have 3rd generation health care agents working for us in the field, which makes us extremely happy and proud!


What charities do you support and how can others get involved?


We support many charities but this year we are very proud to be supporting the St. Patrick’s Day parade and the three deserving charities in which all proceeds will go.  Our personal friend and colleague Bob Williams is the Grand Marshal this year, so Saturday March 21st is going to be a special afternoon for all of us.  We are also involved in the Molloy College gala which is instrumental in raising funds to support scholarships for its deserving students.  We are also proud to offer an annual scholarship to the Hispanic Brotherhood in honor of the late Augustina Diaz De Santiago, whom we lost so tragically.


How do you define success as a business owner?


Success for us is having each and every employee learn and grow with us each and every day.  As our employees grow our patients reap the benefits of excellent care and outstanding customer service.  As an agency we pride ourselves on outstanding customer service – we believe it is truly what separates us from our competition.


What do you love about RVC?


With Pat Huber, Greg Schaefer, Rick Schaefer and Wendy Navarino we have over 200 years of living in Rockville Centre combined!  We were all born and raised in town and are all still in town with our families.  Our motto of our business is there’s no place like home…. We certainly believe that is true here in Rockville Centre.  The amount of friends, family, and business partners we have met through the Chamber of Commerce truly is a blessing and very unique to our village.  A lot of towns see people come and go but not RVC – even when people leave they always find themselves coming back.
