-- Under Innovative New Program, Aveanna will be able to Train Parents, Relatives and Friends to Become a Family Member's Caregiver--

ATLANTA, April 11, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Aveanna Healthcare Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: AVAH), a leading, diversified home care platform focused on providing care to medically complex, high-cost patient populations, today announced that it will participate in Arizona's Family Licensed Health Aide Program (LHA), an innovative program in the State of Arizona that will allow Aveanna to train family members who meet eligibility requirements to care for loved ones in their homes and to be paid for the vital work they do.

The LHA program has been approved by the Arizona State Legislature and signed into law by Arizona Governor Doug Ducey. Aveanna is now offering training to parents, relatives and other loved ones to allow them to operate in their homes as Licensed Health Aide, providing health care services.

Jeff Shaner, Chief Operations Officer of Aveanna, said: "We applaud the State of Arizona for its innovative and creative initiative to help address the acute nursing shortage. Parents and families need solutions to care for medically fragile family members, especially when home health care professionals are in such short supply. With the ability to receive training and pay for the care they provide to loved ones, these caregivers will be better able to overcome the dilemma of having to balance the responsibilities of a job with the need to secure medical care for their family members at home."

Information about Aveanna's LHA program can be found at www.ArizonaLHA.com. If you are interested in being part of this program, please call 602-433-1200 or send an email to LHA-AZ@aveanna.com.
