Amy Hentschel, Owner
“Our greatest goal every day is to improve the life and spirit of a senior. I am called and blessed to be doing what I truly love!”
Amy founded Senior Provisions, LLC in 2011 with the passion to serve the Atlanta senior community and help families find true care solutions. With over 25 years of experience in senior care, she brings an extensive knowledge of skilled rehab facilities, assisted living communities, and home care options to share with families. Armed with a strong sense of advocacy and proven negotiation strategies, she works hard to find the best fit and greatest care value for her clients. She is supported by a strong network of senior professionals and resources, as well as her husband, Hans, and their two children, Aidan and Grace.
It was an early love for seniors that prompted Amy to first volunteer in acute care hospice facilities as a teenager. Today she continues to view her work as a ministry and considers it a privilege to guide families to make informed decisions. She strives every day to further the education on aging and advocate for the improvement of care for all seniors.
