History

A. V. Home Care Services, a private, non-profit health care agency licensed by the State of N.H., was founded in 1975 in response to a community need for dependable home care providers.  Up until then, frail elders and disabled wishing to live safely and independently in their own homes were taken care of by lay contractors who were wholly unsupervised and untrained.  By contrast, Androscoggin Valley Home Care Services worked with State nurses and dieticians to train its original six homemakers and health aides using standardized models of care that remain applicable, effective and utilized to this day. 

 As the years passed the agency burgeoned, employing 150 women at the height of the Medicare boom in the 1990's.   With professional alliances well established and a strong record of serving families in transition, AVHCS has become integral to the safety net of health and human service providers in the North Country.  The agency serves as an important economic stabilizer in the region by assuring good jobs and meaningful work for our many employees.
