Brookhaven-based Advantage Private Home Care Expands to 19 Counties
Brookhaven, GA, July 1, 2015 – The Post Reports – It was his own catastrophic injury that turned Brookhaven resident and business owner Daniel Levy onto his eventual career path – private duty home care.
Levy was a college sophomore working as a valet for an Atlanta restaurant when a driver struck him, knocking him under the car and pinning him.
It took nine months of physical therapy, occupational therapy and nursing to be able to walk again with no assistance, thanks to home health services.
At the time, 18 years ago, Levy was on a tennis scholarship at the University of South Carolina-Aiken. The injury ended his college tennis career and forced him to transfer in his junior year to University of Georgia to finish school.
Inspired by the help he received during his recovery, Levy took a job with a private duty company right out of school and never looked back. He racked up 15 years as a top sales executive with some of the largest companies in the industry, before venturing out on his own a few months ago.
Today, Levy is the new owner of Brookhaven-based Advantage Private Home Care. Since re-launching the 10-year-old company in May, he has won approval to expand service to 13 additional counties, up from just six originally.
Advantage Private Home Care now serves 19 counties throughout metro Atlanta, from Gainesville /Cumming in the North, to Griffin/Newnan in the South, East to Covington and West to Carrollton.
Advantage Private Home Care provides at-home caregivers for seniors and those suffering from or recovering from illness. Its Certified Nursing Assistant caregivers function as an extension of one’s family and help with such tasks as: bathing, dressing, taking medication, using the toilet, eating, walking, light housework, meal prep, shopping for food or clothes and other activities.
Levy pursued his career path as a direct result of his injuries that required multiple surgeries. “I felt like I could ‘give back’ because I understood what it is like to be a patient and relate.”
What impressed him most about the services he received were the benefits of having help at home. “In the hospital, you have around the clock medical help, you have a call button, not at home…it was tough for my family.”
For 15 years, Levy climbed the corporate ladder as a top sales and management executive for some of the biggest names in the industry.
He was a top sales manager for Maxim Healthcare Services Inc. a $1.2 billion-plus medical staffing, home healthcare and wellness-services company, and worked as Area Vice President of Business Development for Amedisys Inc., a $1.5 billion-plus home health and hospice care provider.
Through it all, he saw the opportunity to bring his personal touch, commitment and ideas on how to deliver the highest quality of care to clients, and in May, bought Advantage Private Home Care to do just that. He subsequently moved the company’s headquarters to Brookhaven, where he lives, and expanded the business to serve more families throughout metro Atlanta. In his new role, Levy continues to make a big impact in the lives of families struggling with illness and injury.
“Just recently, we have had a family in crisis that needed our service in a rehab center because their loved one had fallen at night. She really needed 24-7 supervision and that is not something the rehab was responsible for. They called us at 7 p.m. because they didn’t have any family available to assist at that time, and we were able to get them an excellent caregiver by 9 p.m.,” he said.
“When you see a family who truly needs assistance because they can no longer do it themselves, but they want to keep their loved one at home, it makes it all worth it when they put their trust in us and we deliver the quality of service we promote,” he added.
Advantage Private Home Care now serves the following counties: Bartow, Butts, Carroll, Cherokee, Clayton, Cobb, Coweta, DeKalb, Douglas, Fayette, Forsyth, Fulton, Gwinnett, Hall, Henry, Newton, Paulding, Rockdale and Spalding.
