Take Care Private Duty Home Health Care

closeup_lavendarseniorwomanFrom its inception, passion and integrity have been at the heart of Take Care Private Duty Home Health Care, founded by Susanne S. Wise, RN, MBA. Opening in Sarasota, Florida in 1995 with four employees, Take Care has successfully grown to more than 500 staff with locations in Sarasota, Bradenton, Venice, and Port Charlotte. Our services range from providing personal care, whether in the client’s home or facility, to professional transportation to helping clients navigate their health care with personal registered nurse geriatric care managers.

Take Care is a licensed private duty home health care agency in the state of Florida. As a licensed agency, Take Care is subject to unannounced state surveys with the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration. With three offices serving our local community, Take Care provides consistency and highest quality in care. Known for her personal touch and commitment, Susanne continues to embrace healthcare challenges and implement innovative changes to allow older adults to age comfortably and safely in their own residence.

Establishing a benchmark as the leading private duty home health care company in the southwest Florida region, Susanne and her staff meet and exceed the increasing standards in geriatric care and management. Susanne and her caregivers provide their clients with a greater quality of life and a positive outlook by intuitively understanding their health care needs. Take Care’s sincere commitment to their clients and respect for their privacy is an integral part in fulfilling this vision.

Success is elusive; however, client affirmations serve as reminders that Take Care is achieving its goals to effect a positive change for those who need care. One client wrote, “What a joy it has been to get to know more of your workers. Each and every one has been wonderful, and I have made some lifelong friendships. I praise your work wherever I go.”

Although Take Care’s emphasis on personal attention has garnered prestigious awards and peer recognition, its priorities remain firmly in place—to continue community involvement and maintain a personal interest in its clients’ well-being. Since 2000, the Gulf Coast Business Review continues to rank Take Care as one of the 500 largest companies in Sarasota and Manatee counties and the Gulf Coast region.

Furthering Take Care’s interest and mission to elevate health care standards, Susanne recently integrated geriatric care management into Take Care’s existing services. Take Care Advisor propels clients into the future offering comprehensive care management services using state-of-the-art online master health care records—allowing clients and their families to immediately access personalized health care information through a unique web-based portal.

“As we grow locally and regionally, our goal is to blend compassion, expertise and technology to help clients and their families navigate the complexities of aging,” concludes Susanne.


We applaud you in your discernment in finding such quality people to help you in this desperately needed service. Let us encourage you all to keep spreading your TLC to those who often never feel loving touches and tender compassion.
