Over 30 years - A legacy of excellence and leading the way

Mary Williams - Founder & Administrator | Pioneer & Champion for the catastrophically injured and sick

The “New Start” model of care was founded and implemented over 30 years by a passionate RN who was a pioneer and advocate for disabled people. Mary Williams began the “New Start” mission in 1982 when she founded and implemented a new way for catastrophically disabled people to live outside of facilities and hospitals while managing their lives and learning the skills necessary in order to regain independence after injury or illness.  

During this time, New Start had established its niche in the rehabilitation and long-term care arenas as the only program of its kind in the nation. 

In 1989, Mary Williams created New Start Home Health Care, Inc. in order to provide an experienced nursing staff and a continuum of care for her clients who wished to live in the community. 

Through the years, New Start Home Health Care, Inc. became a full-service home health agency providing Home Care Services both Intermittent and Private Duty Shift Care. 

35 years later Mary Williams continues her mission, through the leadership of her daughter, Sian Welch, and her dedicated management and nursing staff. They provide, not only, the highest level of care and clinical service that New Start was founded upon but, New Start corporate and management staff carry Mary Williams' promise of total commitment for honest and ethical practices in all circumstances.
