Advocate Home Care
Advocate Home Care Services, which was founded in Southeast Florida and rapidly grew to provide services to include Southwest Florida and the Tampa Bay area, is now part of American In-Home Care. Their commitment to providing clients access to quality and affordable non-medical care that allows them to live full and dignified lives, while maintaining their independence continues today as part of American In-Home Care.
American In-Home Care began as American Home Companions (AHC), which was founded in 1992 by Don Reynolds a former Methodist minister. He visited many seniors in nursing homes and witnessed first-hand the indignity that many elders suffered due to inadequate elder care. He formed American Home Companions to allow seniors, including his own mother, to continue to live in the comfort of their own homes with an in-home caregiver.
His mother’s experience mirrors many of our clients’. As we age, our circle of friends, places, and interests slowly diminishes, and we become dependent upon others for many activities of daily living and social interaction. That is why at Advocate Home Care services and American In-Home Care, we believe that being independent should not mean being alone.
If you know a friend, family member, or neighbor that could benefit form our home care we are ready to help. We offer free, no obligation consultations, including an in-home personalized assessment, and present care providers for approval, with confidence that our rigorous screening process and guaranteed match philosophy will provide an exceptional experience for our clients.

We offer assignments to care providers where they may assume several roles; acting as a friend, confidant, advocate, and more – while sharing in people’s life experiences.
