About Our Staff
Home Care Assistance of Massachusetts was founded in 2007 with the commitment to give back to the community. The owners of the business have many years of management experience, professional health certification and the passion to put their client’s needs before their own. Their business provides home care services across the Greater Boston and MetroWest areas as well as on Cape Cod and the Islands, with operations based out of their main office in Wellesley Hills. A brief profile of each of the owners is provided below.
Carolyn Gelineau R.Ph., Vice President of Client Services
Carolyn is a licensed, professional pharmacist in the states of Connecticut and Massachusetts. She is the business’s primary Client Care Coordinator and voice of the business’ radio and television advertising. She takes most of our client telephone calls, assesses their needs, visits with clients and their families in their homes or hospitals and works closely with Larry and Don to identify the most appropriate caregiver for our clients’ needs. She started this business after several years of pharmacy experience and a desire to monitor and advance the care of her patients; something that was becoming increasingly difficult in our insurance-mediated country. Additional personal experiences with her grandmother’s sub-adequate stay in a nursing home many years ago before home care was widely available caused Carolyn to seek out a better solution for our aging families. Carolyn is thrilled to finally be making a real difference in the lives of our clients and of their families.
Don Khoury, Vice President of Business Development
Don is responsible for developing strategic partnerships and growth. Don joined the business from iSchoolConnect, an online platform for College and Universities to source qualified International Students, where he was CEO. Building on a successful career in sales at Xerox, Don began to specialize in management, leadership and sales consulting. He has worked with such clients as the Bank of Nova Scotia, Guardian Life and Royal LePage. Don has been invited to speak at several universities, companies and government agencies to share his expertise and appeared on local and national television and in print media. Don has also served as Vice President of Business Development for Executive & International Health at Lahey Hospital & Medical Center and an Executive in Residence at Bentley University. Don has a BA in Political Science from Wheaton College and an MBA from Bentley University.
Larry Levine, President
Larry is responsible for the business’s staffing, finance, operations and marketing activities. Larry collaborates with Carolyn and Don on ensuring that the business’s marketing message is correct and is well-received by the community as well as manages the overall day to day operations of the business. His years of experience as a business and product manager in high tech firms give Larry the skills necessary for this role. Larry’s own family experiences with his own 107 year old grandmother caused him to seek out better solutions to elder care. Over 30 years ago when his grandmother first needed care in her home, the home care industry did not exist. It was a scary prospect for his family to consider who the state would send each week. Larry is happy that he, Carolyn and Don are able to make a difference in the lives of elders across Massachusetts.
