Introduction


I Am Unique Special Care and Case Management is a nursing cooperative based on a highly successful model of a home health agency cooperative stated in 1985 called Cooperative Home Care Associates, which is a worker owned agency headquartered in the South Bronx, New York, specializing in nursing assistants. Since the establishment of Cooperative Home Care Associates, there have been three other similar nurses aides cooperatives established in the northeast. I Am Unique will be the first nursing agency in the United States and the first home care cooperative in North Carolina. Our business plan has been written by ICA, Inc. out of Boston, which has specialized in assisting companies to become employee owned and operated since 1978. ICA will continue to consult with I Am Unique until we are a well established cooperative and on our feet.

I Am Unique's emphasis is on being a nurse-driven and nurse-run organization. By setting up the company along different principles, I Am Unique will be able to attract the best nurses, retain them, and in doing so provide the highest level of care.

I Am Unique's objective is to provide and maintain the highest quality home care through a strategy of treating employees with respect and where the bottom line will be patient satisfaction.
