Founder and CEO of Halcyon Home, Amy Sweet is a physician assistant who has grown Halcyon Home from its inception to the current staff of more than 450 employees, providing exceptional care to thousands of Central Texas patients each year. Sweet and her staff can provide a continuum of care, from nonmedical in-home care for clients needing driving, cooking, fall prevention and dementia care 24 hours a day, to medical home health as needed and finally, hospice end-of-life care. “What I love about our company is that we can be with a person from the first time they need help as they age to the last, developing relationships that are priceless,” Sweet says. She credits much of the success of her company to the focus she places on employee satisfaction. Through servant leadership, she provides support and growth in the workplace to her employees, 85 percent of whom are women. She strongly believes aging in place with the right social and medical structure will revolutionize the way health care is provided. Halcyon Home won Best Home Health Company from Senior Resource Guide three years in a row, and Sweet is the 2019 winner of Austin Woman magazine’s Woman’s Way Business Award in health and wellness.
