BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The MENTOR Network today announced the acquisition of Just Family, Inc. (“JFI”), a Kentucky provider of Adult Day Health (ADH) services. Based in Lexington, Kentucky, JFI serves approximately 800 residents of the Bluegrass State through 9 ADH Centers as well as home-based attendant care services.

Through it center-based and home-based programming, JFI provides a range of person-centered day services to elders, including personal care, medication management, and nutritional and nursing support. The transaction, which closed on July 1, provides The MENTOR Network entry into the Kentucky ADH market, expanding its ADH geographic footprint to a 5th state.

“We entered the ADH market in 2014 to establish another platform from which we could grow and fulfill our mission,” said Bruce Nardella, president and CEO of The MENTOR Network. “Since that time, we have made significant progress in establishing our ADH business, MENTOR Adult Day Health, as the leading provider of ADH services.

“While we are impressed by the quality of Just Family, Inc.’s center-based care, we are especially intrigued by its smaller, but growing attendant care model, which provides cost-effective, home-based support to elders,” Nardella added. “Consistent with the mission that has driven The MENTOR Network for almost 40 years, Just Family, Inc.’s continuum of service allows elders to maintain their independence and dignity, while avoiding institutional care. We are thrilled to welcome the management and caregivers of the Just Family, Inc., as well as the individuals they support, to our organization.”

Including the acquisition of JFI, MENTOR Adult Day Health now operates 37 centers in Kentucky, Massachusetts, Maryland, New Hampshire and New Jersey, serving approximately 5,300 elders.
