Douglas Health Services was founded by Anne M. Douglas, RN, BSN, GCM in 2001. After 22 years in home care, including ten on the Treasure Coast of Florida, Ms. Douglas had provided executive guidance as the Administrator and Director of a large Medicare Certified Agency. In this role she experienced first hand the industry's greatest challenge, maintaining competent staff at competitive rates. In order to serve seniors and others who preferred care at home, she elected to obtain a license through the Agency for Health Care Administration as a Nurse Registry so that clients could receive a better value for their dollar, creating Douglas Health Services (Douglas). Over the last 14 years, under Anne's leadership Douglas has earned a reputation as the most respected and trusted name in personal and in-home care services on the Treasure Coast.
Now part of American In-Home Care, Douglas continues its commitment to referring quality and affordable non-medical home care providers, allowing seniors and those in frail health to receive exceptional care while remaining in the comfort and familiar surroundings of their own home.
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 Douglas Health 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 caregivers for approval, with confidence that our rigorous screening process and guaranteed match philosophy will provide an exceptional experience for our clients.
