AdvisaCare began as a health care staffing company back in the 90's for hospitals experiencing the nursing shortage. As we worked with patients and families going through crisis, we began to develop a special bond with them. However, when it came time for the patients to be discharged from the hospital, families would be faced with trying to find a home health care company that could continue the specific care for their loved one. They would find one that promised to deliver quality care but in a short time the individual would be back in the hospital and the cycle would start all over again.
When Kris Skogen CEO, heard of the troubles that patients and families were going through and of the working relationships that work forming between our patients and staff, he decided to expand our scope of service to home health care. Today, this company is more than a staffing agency or a home health agency, it is a blend of integrated services designed to maximize the health, happiness, and independence of our patients and reduce the stress and worry of families. We believe that health is as dynamic as it is individual and we strive to learn and grow from our clients and to provide caring, passionate, and proven health care.
In 2011, AdvisaCare formed a strategic partnership with our national organization, myTEAM TRIUMPH, Inc., to provide financial and logistical support for our national board. We are grateful for their continued support.
