Who We Are

History and Philosophy of Telecare

Telecare was founded in 1965 by Art Gladman, a psychiatrist, Lida Hahn, a psychiatric nurse, and Morton Bakar, a businessman — three individuals who were committed to a belief in the rehabilitation potential of people with serious mental illness.

Art, Lida, and Morton believed that clients could achieve better results when they received services that were individualized, focused, and provided in a more home-like setting. They placed the client at the center of the organization and created a culture where employees and clients were supported in reaching their full potential. Their vision still guides Telecare today and is carried on by Anne Bakar, Telecare's President and CEO, and daughter of co-founder Morton Bakar.

While Telecare has evolved over the years to address the changing needs of the people we serve, our overarching goal remains the same. Our mission is to provide excellent services and systems of care for people with serious mental illness. We exist to help people realize their full potential.

Our Values

As an organization, we are guided by our core values of security, growth, and partnership. We believe this helps Telecare to provide outstanding services, create great places to work, and build for a brighter future.


Security is having a sense of groundedness and solidity, of having a secure foundation to grow from.


Growth is the ability to learn, achieve, challenge ourselves, and reach beyond our old limits.


Partnership is to be of service, to be a part of something, to collaborate, and to share our own knowledge and experience to a greater purpose.

Our Culture

Telecare is an employee- and family-owned organization, with a culture that is open and inclusive. Diversity is one of our strengths — whether in age, race, gender, culture, religion, language, sexual orientation, ancestry, or beliefs. Employees and clients bring their unique life experiences and perspectives to this work, making it richer and more meaningful for us all.
