Alabama Home Care Specialists - North Alabama's leading senior home care provider.
About Alabama Home Care Specialists
Alabama Home Care Specialists, LLC is a locally owned and operated business based in Decatur, Alabama. It was created with one idea: we want to assist families and their elderly loved ones in maintaining their independence at reasonable prices, but with quality care.
Alabama Home Care Specialists employs both home care aides and CNAs. We also have an RN and LPN on staff that are available to help monitor your loved one's needs. Each employee is carefully screened using background, sex offender registry, and nurse aide registry checks. Each is required to submit a TB test and is required to have a valid drivers license and verifiable auto insurance.
Alabama Home Care Specialists provides a variety of elder care services, from homemaking services to personal care services, as well as services specifically targeted for seniors with alzheimer's disease or dementia. AHCS provides elder care 365 days a year, 24 hours a day, and 7 days a week. AHCS works closely with most Long Term Care insurance companies, such as Genworth, Metlife, TransAmerica, New York Life, and many more. To find out more about our services and payment options, please call or email us.
Natives of Decatur, Alabama, Derek and Erika Sheats, decided almost ten years ago that the aging community of North Alabama needed a family-owned and family-first agency for in-home senior care. With backgrounds in marketing and business development, and a passion to help others, Alabama Home Care Specialists was founded.
The Sheats feel that it is important that they give back to the communities they are a part of, whether that be with event sponsorships or volunteering. Erika has been a member of the Women’s Leadership Council, and Derek coaches softball and baseball teams yearly. They
have been involved in many community-related events as a way to give back, as well as sponsored the Alzheimer’s Association “Walk to End Alzheimers”, Morgan County’s State of Healthcare, and numerous United Way fundraisers.
The Sheats have two young children, ages 11 and 4. With aging parents and grandparents as well, they have first-hand experience of some of the challenges of balancing work, extracurricular activities, and the day-to-day needs of both families. Their primary goal is to be a trusted resource for others in similar, and more difficult situations.
"Our family dedicated to helping yours.”
“Alabama Home Care Specialists is 100% professional, reliable, on time, and I would recommend them to anyone. Great company and great people!”
Brenda - adult daughter of client
“Being a caregiver is one of the few things in the world that allows for being continually blessed by the opportunity to care for those in need. Being a part of a client's journey, hearing their life story, and being given a clear path to follow through their experiences - it has forever changed my life. My clients call me their blessing, but what I get from them is something I could never truly repay. Loving, caring for, and being a part of their lives has been a beautiful gift.”
Anna - home care aide for AHCS
"I no longer worry about my elderly parents when I am out of town. The staff of Alabama Home Care Specialists makes sure that they are taken care of and keeps me informed of any and all changes"
Sarah - adult daughter of clients
"Caregiving is not for everyone, but if you are compassionate and understanding, it can be EXTREMELY rewarding! You can suddenly do things that you never thought you could, and you are humbled by it. I absolutely love my job!"
Tina - home care aide for AHCS
“It was only after employing AHCS that my mom was able to sleep at night. The safety, security, and peace of mind were immediate and complete, and it allowed her to be comfortable in her own home. The ladies were 100% professional, gracious, generous, and loving. It was as if our family had suddenly added two more members. And they have been truly welcome in every sense of the word!!”
Phillip - adult son of client
“I enjoy working with a company that puts their clients' and caregivers' needs ahead of their own.”
