In 2001, we saw a profound need for an In-Home Care Agency that could service the culturally diverse communities surrounding St. Louis City, in both Missouri and Illinois. As the company began to grow, we were able to expand into a full service health care provider including adult day care, outpatient physical therapy and transportation.
The “AW” in our name stands for “Aging Well.” To us, Agi...ng Well means having a healthy body, an active mind, and a positive outlook on the years to come. We are dedicated to helping individuals regain lost abilities and confidence while assisting them on the path to successfully reaching their maximum potential.
