Transforming Care

Our belief is mental and physical health are interrelated. While we focus on mental health, we recognize that improving physical and spiritual health will directly improve overall well-being. We wish to revolutionize mental health care with a mission to empower people in need. 

Avie fills the gaps of traditional care by providing a blended, interdisciplinary and stepped health service for adults. Within this model, clients receive physician-led coaching, informative assessment, and customized education that carefully allows them to view and manage their health goals for improved outcomes and adherence.

"Our vision is to revolutionize the experience and culture around care for older adults and their families."

Our Story

For Avie, this work is personal. The team has had its own unique struggles with providing care to loved ones. Whether it was a lack of meaningful support, struggles to navigate care options, or keeping up with demands of evolving needs, they felt like the current system wasn’t enough and wanted to do more.

Avie is a project of passion, bringing together experts and advocates alike to make the process of healing as meaningful and supportive as possible for both loved ones and families. We want to take the pressures of care off of families, so they can get back to doing what matters most: deepening their connections and relationships with those they love. Care shouldn’t put a strain on your family but rather, help strengthen it.
