As a leader in the home health care industry, how did you get started?
I founded Advanced 25 years ago when my father needed home care services. Later, when my mom was
diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, I knew who to turn to for help: the Advanced team of caregivers we had
screened, hired and trained.
I know firsthand how stressful and frustrating it can be to navigate home health care for a loved one,
and I know that Advanced is truly a committed partner in care. It isn’t just a business—it’s personal. My
goal was to create a company that provides expert care and exceptional service at every level. I believe in
deep connections in my work and personal life and restoring dignity to those in need of care.
How are you positioned for the rapidly increasing number of seniors that need care?
To prepare for the future, Advanced has grown to provide services through the entire continuum of care,
from companion and respite care to skilled care with specialties in ALS, MS, Parkinson’s and memory care.
Advanced Nursing + Home Support is able to handle every client’s care needs, and able to be there when
those needs change.
We use a team approach for every client. From the initial contact to a comprehensive needs assessment
with our clients and their families, we design a very specific plan of care with the best interests of our
clients and their families in mind. We make the best possible match of care providers, for both needs and
personalities, and our staff works diligently to deliver care that allows our clients to thrive in place and live
with dignity, fulfillment and purpose.
