Care Advantage provides honest, compassionate, and quality care to families around Virginia. We tailor make a care plan to suit you and your family’s needs. Our nurse preforms a FREE in-home assessment where a plan of care is suggested. This not only includes the care aspect but also the preferences, likes, and fun activities each client enjoys. This ensures we match the right caregiver with each client. Clients are also welcome to interview caregivers themselves to ensure personalities and compatibility is met.

The entire Care Advantage team is focused on quality care for individuals at home or at other health care facilities such as the hospitals, assisted living facilities, nursing homes, retirement communities, and more. It’s all about the best people with the right skills caring for the friends, families, and neighbors with whom we share our community.

Locally owned and operated since 1988 by Debbie Johnston, RN, Care Advantage makes sure our clients have all the care they need to remain safe and healthy at home. With the total patient care in mind, CEO Debbie Johnston, RN and COO Karen Britt, RN run this company from the caring mind of Nurses. Care Advantage is your hometown, home health care company available from only 2 hours to 24/7/365 care with no minimums or contracts.

Care Advantage has been in business for over 28 years and was born out of a need to help people once discharged home from the Hospital. Debbie Johnston, RN started the company in 1988 after working in the hospital operating room and seeing patients being discharged home “quicker and sicker”. This prompted her curiosity about what was happening to these patients once they were sent home. It was this curiosity that led her into her career of home care and the start of Care Advantage. This has naturally evolved from helping patients leave the hospital to holding their hand and making their last few hours the best possible.

Care Advantage has been helping families across the state of Virginia for over 28 years. Our local offices are located in:

Richmond West End
Richmond Southside
Colonial Heights
