Naples-based McKenney Home Care is expanding to the east coast of Florida, with an office in Palm Beach County. This is the company's third office, joining ones in Sarasota and Naples. 

McKenney, according to a statement, "provides individualized caregiver and nursing services for private pay and long-term health insured clients."

The new Palm Beach location will be managed by Amy Junk, who brings more than 25 years of experience in home health, the release states. Junk is responsible for managing day-to-day operations, overseeing staff and onboarding nurses and caregivers, the release adds. 

“We welcome new clients in Palm Beach County to experience our superior, customized care at the level needed and requested,” Junk says in the statement. “Our resources are deep and include registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, certified nursing assistants, home health aides, companions or live-in assistants."

McKenney Home Care was founded in Naples in 2013 by sisters Michele McKenney and Patrice Magrath, following successful careers in health care and international business, respectively. In 2019, the company expanded again, with a second office in Sarasota designed to accommodate home care needs in  Charlotte and Sarasota counties.

“We saw a need to provide support to clients and their caregivers, usually family members, who face difficulties and stress during one of life’s most significant milestones,” says  Magrath in the statement. 

McKenney Home Care now serves Collier, Lee, Sarasota, Charlotte, Palm Beach, Martin, Indian River and St. Lucie counties. It accepts private pay for services and coordinates billing with long-term care insurances.
