Aviva's CEO, Bay Area Based and Focused
As a former hospital administrator, I launched Aviva with the goal of having a more focused, direct impact on the delivery of care than I could ever accomplish within a hospital setting. For me, the joy of running an organization like Aviva In-Home Care is having the ability to positively improve the lives of individuals needing customized care. As a passionate Bay Area resident, I know that many local seniors can benefit from new approaches to in-home care, that will bring them more connection to the community, and provide families with a greater sense of comfort that their loved one is indeed matched with an ideal caregiver. This starts by including the family throughout the care planning process, a key component of the concept of “family-centered care,” which has been adopted by top medical centers. A strong communication loop between family, the caregiver, Aviva management, and community healthcare practitioners is essential for ensuring that all the needs of the client are met. While this may not sound like a novel concept, it is not commonly practiced within the home care community.
At Aviva, we also use the latest in health technology to maximize opportunities for communication between all members of our client’s care circles. We utilize nursing oversight to ensure that we are in compliance with physician orders, and that our careplans are being properly administered. Lastly, we are a proud strategic business partner with the Honor Care Network. Honor helps Aviva with its best-in-class client reporting technology (to keep our clients and their families well-informed), as well as with sourcing & hiring the industry’s best care professionals.
As owner of the business, I also promise to you my direct involvement in your loved ones care, and will always make myself available for feedback and improvements in our service. I look forward to working with you and your loved one on creating a care plan that is perfectly suited to the family’s needs. Thank you for considering Aviva as your care partner.

Aviva's Family-Centered Care Approach
Family-centered service is made up of a set of values, attitudes, and approaches to services for clients with special needs and their families. Family-centered service recognizes that each family is unique; that the family is the constant in our client’s life; and that they are the experts on the client’s abilities and needs. Aviva works closely with the family to make informed decisions about the services and support the client and family receive. In family-centered service, the strengths and needs of all involved family members are considered. Studies have shown that health outcomes and levels of satisfaction are improved with this model of care. This is why this model is widely used at major health facilities across the U.S.
- Understanding and respecting clients’ cultural traditions, personal preferences, and values, their family situations, and their lifestyles.
- Giving clients and their families the opportunity to make choices about many aspects of their care and the care delivery process.
- Involving clients and their loved ones as part of the care team, collaborating with agency management and other clinical practitioners to make optimal choices in the delivery of care.
- Putting responsibility for important aspects of self-care and monitoring in clients’ hands, along with the tools and support they need.
- Ensuring that transitions between providers, health care settings, and the home are respectful, coordinated, and efficient.
