How Avail Home Care Works For You
Why are so many Florida residents choosing Avail Home Care to care for their loved ones?
The Avail Home Care Mission
When you decide that you or a loved one needs some support at home, the first thing you’re going to do is search the internet for information. Unfortunately, much of what you find will be confusing and homogeneous.
That’s why we haven’t spent a lot of time telling you that we will find you the most caring caregivers or that we’ll make sure that you or your loved one is safe.
Because that should be a given. Any company offering home care SHOULD at the very least provide qualified, caring caregivers and a focus on the safety and well-being of their clients.
But touting that as what your company will do is like saying, “Isn’t it great that our tire company actually replaces customers’ tires when they paid us to do it?!? What a great company!”
I’m not comparing caring for a human to changing a tire, by the way; I’m just illustrating the point that all home care should be safe and caring. That’s the core of your service.
What sets companies apart, and Avail in particular, is an understanding of what customers want and need that goes beyond those basic fundamentals.
At Avail, we like to say (and live) that we are “innovating what it means to care.” It’s our North Star, the guiding principle that keeps us on track with our business decisions.
“From the moment I learned about Avail, I was impressed with their level of professionalism and genuine compassion. I wouldn’t consider any other company to take care of my family.”
Here’s how we’re innovating what it means to care:
- Caring means putting clients’ needs first, and always being honest with them about their options.
- Caring means communicating the right information to the right person(s) at the right time(s).
- Caring means educating clients and their families about the senior care journey and ecosystem so that they can make the best choices for themselves.
- Caring means handling administrative tasks in a manner that’s frictionless for clients and caregivers.
- Caring means providing easy, secure ways for critical information to flow.
- Caring means supporting a talented and committed roster of caregivers with respect and ongoing opportunities to grow.
How We Help
We'll find your "forever caregiver"
This is our most important job. We not only find you someone who is qualified to handle the care you need, but who is also a good fit for you or your loved one(s) in terms of personality and attitude.
Vetting and security
We conduct all state-required criminal background checks, reference interviews, license and certification confirmations, and skills and capabilities.
We handle all the paperwork
No one who is dealing with health issues also wants to become an office manager. We facilitate all caregiver scheduling, invoices and associated payments, and issues such as extra payment for holidays and tax documentation.
We treat your family like they are a part of ours
When you engage someone to provide home care for a cherished family member, you need to know that the caregiver possesses integrity and compassion, as well as all necessary qualifications and certifications.
At Avail Florida Home Care, we treat your family like they are a part of ours by referring only the highest-quality caregivers who’ve proven their honesty, capability, and passion for the job.
To protect you and your loved ones, all caregivers in our network are fully screened, licensed, and insured and must pass an FBI-Level 2 background check before they’re eligible to be referred. In addition, all caregivers are certified in CPR, have received either their HHA (home health care) certification and/or their CNA (certified nursing assistant) license, and have a minimum of at least two years experience in providing home health care. Finally, all caregivers also undergo a complete physical, a tuberculosis screening and a thorough personal and professional reference check.
We'll handle the stress of caregiving so you can focus on enjoying your time together
As a state Licensed Nurse Registry, Avail Florida Home Care allows you or your loved one(s) to focus on enjoying a life with fewer limitations now that you and your family have help.
To get you started, our Care Directors are happy to provide a free in-home assessment for you or your loved one. If we are not the best solution for you, we can connect you to providers who will be.
Meet Our Leadership
Chad Fisher, a native Floridian, knows what service looks like. He joined the Army in 1993 where he trained to be an M1A1 tank driver and later drove the 1st tank deployed to Somalia, Africa after the infamous Blackhawk helicopter crash.
Chad completed his duties as a decorated soldier, moved home to Florida, and opened a business to pursue his passion for classic car restoration. During this time Chad’s grandfather, with whom he was very close, passed away. This had a huge impact on him and ignited his desire to engage with our senior population, many of whom had been purchasers of his lovingly restored cars. As Chad began to connect with the stories of seniors in our community, his desire to serve those individuals grew until he joined his family in founding Avail Home Care.
Chad and his wife Ashlie live in Clearwater with their 2 young boys. Chad still enjoys working with cars as well as spending time with his family.
Jesse was immersed in the world of senior care from a young age. Shortly after graduation from high school, Jesse’s mother was suffering from the effects of a rare neurological disorder. Jesse made it his personal mission to understand all the resources available to his mom and figure out how to provide the best quality of care.
Jesse attended Cornell University as an undergrad and decided to continue his education at the University of Tampa. Before graduating with a Masters in Entrepreneurship, Jesse met the team at Avail and immediately was drawn to their passion for senior living. Jesse joined Avail and hopes to expand their reach and services so as many seniors as possible can benefit from his experience.
Jesse is married to his wife Alyssa Malin who is a Family Nurse Practitioner. They have a two year old daughter.
Alyssa Malin is a board certified Family Nurse Practitioner. She is a native to Tampa, Florida and attended the University of South Florida for both her undergraduate and graduate studies.
She began her nursing career as a Registered Nurse working in the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit at Tampa General Hospital. Her experience working with patients in the acute setting fueled her passion for preventative medicine and primary care.
Alyssa has a keen understanding of the needs of a diverse patient population. Her approach to patient care is all encompassing – she values the medical, social and psychological components of healthcare.
Her goal in practice is to keep patients out of the acute setting and in their homes – healthy and happy. She loves getting to know patients and their families and has been an excellent resource for patients, caregivers and staff at Avail.
