More than 100 “valued employees” at Bayada Home Health Care came to the Bellevue Tuesday afternoon to attend a gratitude luncheon hosted by company founder and Chairman Mark Baiada.

They went home with much more than a free meal.

During the lunch, Baiada announced his decision to take $20 million and distribute it to about 32,000 current and former Bayada employees in the form of gifts ranging from $50 for employees who just started with the South Jersey company to more than $10,000 for those who have been with Bayada for many years.
