About Us

We believe in the power of Assistive Technology.

How it Started

 

ATvanced Care started out as a smart home design and installation company. However, one day they were called upon when Aaron’s grandfather suffered a serious fall and injury. After being released from the hospital, his grandfather did not recover as expected and needed extensive monitoring and care. At this point, the family considered selling his home and moving him to assisted living.

Fortunately, Aaron’s father reached out and asked if there was anything they could do to help. That’s when the change happened – the company realized that many of the smart home devices they already worked with could be adapted to assist in caring for Aaron’s grandfather. After a period of thoughtful development and testing, they were able to create a system with sensors, emergency response, hands-free calling, and other helpful features. This allowed Aaron’s grandfather to remain living independently in his own home, which he continues to do to this day at 91yrs old.

Seeing the success of this system in supporting Aaron’s grandfather, the company decided to shift the focus of their business to helping the elderly and those with developmental disabilities achieve greater independence through the use of assistive technology. They changed their name to ATvanced Care, which reflects their new specialization in “Assistive Tech” – providing advanced care via assistive technology solutions.
