Advantage Home Care’s High Standards of Care
Advantage Home Care is a locally owned family business founded in 2008 in southern Maine. The company’s mission is based on the personal experience the owner faced when his own mother suffered a stroke, and, as a result, developed dementia and wished to receive care at home. At Advantage Home Care, we are deeply rooted in our company. Even the owner and our office staff have hired our very own caregivers to provide care for their loved ones. These experiences have motivated us to hire superb caregivers. During our interview process, we always ask the question, “Is this someone I would hire to care for my own family?” And the answer must always be, “YES!”
