This is an exciting time at V&V Management Solutions and Blessings4Ever. We are working hard and getting ready for the next stage of growth. From the company’s inception in 2014, Blessings4Ever has offered families and communities quality home care. V&V Management Solutions has had the pleasure of managing and providing direction for this amazing home care agency,. Yet the vision from the start was to have a dynamic and pervasive suite of home care services – including skilled care and private pay - across the care continuum. We are at the next stage of development of this original vision.
As a result, V&V leadership has developed a new team – the Strategic Marketing and Business Development Department, to take Blessings4Ever, V&V, and all verticals to the next level and to promote our services in the Greater Philadelphia Region. Their goal is to develop Blessings4Ever and V&V Management Solutions. We are so excited to be a part of this next phase of organizational growth and development.
