Reliable, professional in home caregiving, with a focus on wellness
Advantage Home Care provides superior service because:
Advantage Home Care is not a franchise. We are accountable to our clients and employees rather than to an outside entity. Our owners have 22+ years of agency ownership experience in Oregon. We truly know our business and the unique needs of our community.
Advantage Home Care supports a culture of caring. We are committed to providing you and your loved ones the highest quality care in your own home. Our team has years of experience navigating the senior care system. We can help make referrals to appropriate resources even if you do not require in-home assistance.
Excellent care begins with excellent employees. Our staff are carefully chosen, provided with in-house training, and have 7 day a week access to supervisory support. We check in with caregivers regularly to ensure they are comfortable with their assignments. We also check in regularly with clients to ensure a good match.
Advantage Home Care office staff have been selected for integrity, empathy, great communication skills, good business sense, and direct care experience. All of us understand the needs and desires of our clients and our caregivers, and we keep our promises.

How do I establish home based care for myself or my loved ones?
Advantage Home Care managers gather basic information by telephone to determine whether our services are a good fit for your needs. Then we schedule a no-charge, no obligation assessment in your home to create a care plan that provides a good balance between your independence, your safety, and your comfort. We forward your care plan to third party payers, if any, for approval. We carefully match caregivers to you, and we strive to create long-term, stable schedules. We believe home care should make your life easier, safer, and more comfortable.
Who provides my care?
All Advantage Home Care caregivers have at least two good job references and have passed Oregon and National background checks, an Office of Inspector General Exclusions check, a national sex offender check, and a drug test. We conduct small orientations, and allow time for questions. We also conduct in-house continuing education, which includes: bloodborne pathogen and infection control classes, body mechanics training, gait belt and Hoyer lift training, occupied bed changes, dementia care, medication safety, and other relevant topics.
