The Alacare Home Health Difference

We understand that there is nothing more comforting than being at home – and we also know that you have a choice when it comes to selecting a home health care provider. Here are a few reasons you should consider Alacare Home Health for your in home care.



We have been serving Alabama for more than 46 years and have cared for thousands of patients all across the state. We proudly stand by our claim that no other provider understands home health care like we do.



We are Alabama’s oldest and largest family-owned home care agency. We were founded as a result of Major Charles D. Beard Jr.’s unsuccessful search for a quality home health provider for his mother. Now more than 46 years later, quality home health care remains the foundation of Alacare Home Health with Major Beard’s daughter, Susan B. Brouillette serving as CEO and Major Beard’s son, John G. Beard as company president.


Generous Spirit

When you have been in home health care as long as we have, you have the opportunity to care for a lot of people. But sometimes circumstances occur that make it difficult for patients to receive care. The patient’s electricity may be disconnected or there may not be any food in the pantry. As a result we founded the Hospice & Home Health Fund of Alabama. HHHFA is a non-profit, 501(c)3 and each year due to the generosity of employees and supporters in the community, patients with obstacles preventing them from getting care, are able to do so.
