Our Story – What Makes Us Different

Fran and Gloria

Alliance Home Health Care and Hospice founders and best friends for 40 years, Fran Briem, BSHCA, RN, and Gloria Harmon, LICSW, launched their business nearly a decade ago with the belief that, together, they possessed a rare quality that would lead to a thriving company providing quality care to countless patients across New Mexico.

Although our dear Fran passed away in 2016, her passion for providing the highest quality care and enhanced wellbeing for the elderly continues to have an impact on those in our care today, and Gloria continues to carry the torch in her honor.

Coming from immigrant, lower middle class families who stressed education and community service, the nursing and social work professions came naturally to Fran and Gloria. Together, the duo took their lifelong dream of business ownership and their natural skill sets, and turned them into a reality. Gloria emphasizes that the key to the agency’s achievement has always been and continues to be in truly striving to provide excellent care.

“Most importantly, our mission is to truly help those we serve, from our clients and their families to our wonderful employees and community,” said Harmon. “And, to allow joy and laughter to fill our hearts along the way!”

Unlike other care providers, Alliance Home Health Care and Hospice has access and the ability to provide all in-home care services needed. Therefore, care recipients can maintain a one-on-one relationship with their care manager all the way through their care experience.

Home Health & Hospice Care

  • Alliance Home Health Care understands the difficulties associated with in-home care. Our nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists, medical social workers, dietitians, and home health aides work closely with a patient’s physician to establish a proper treatment plan.
  • Our hospice care services are designed to help our patients live each day to the fullest extent possible in your home—and to provide comfort and support to their families as well. Patients receive visits as needed, and the hospice team is available 24 hours a day/7 days a week for support and care, as needed.
