a) Describe your agency’s philosophy of providing services and supports to individuals with disabilities.
Advanced Homecare of Ohio believe that compassion, and tenderness-the heart of caregiving promotes the highest quality of life. We believe that ultimate patient independence promotes self-esteem and dignity within the family unit. Facilitation of self-care needs is a vital part of the home care role. Recovery is best facilitated in patient's home setting where they are most comfortable and can interact and receive support from family members or significant others. We also believe in the concept of health as a state of complete physical, mental, and social wellbeing, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.

Our nursing staff will come out to the clients home and provide nursing care to any client that is in need of nursing or support.
