What to Expect.
The Advanced Care Group is here to help. Our purpose is to provide an extra layer of support for you and your family as you walk through your complex medical condition and to ensure that you receive the care you want, in the location that you want it, and at the time you need it. We assign each patient a specialized team of clinicians that includes a physician, nurse practitioner, and nurse and – depending upon your needs and preferences – a social worker and/or chaplain. This team will stay the same throughout your entire time with The Advanced Care Group so you always know who to contact.
Our service begins with an initial assessment. In this first meeting, we will work to better understand your condition, your goals, any symptoms that are giving you difficulty, and the level of support you have from your family, friends, and other caregivers. Based on this information, we will work with you to develop a care plan that is focused on your specific needs and goals.
Our clinical team will then walk with you through the course of your condition, helping ensure that your needs are met and your goals are achieved. We’ll be available to come to you when you need us. We will consistently check in with you to make sure you’re doing okay, and we’ll be there in the middle of the night if you need to call us in the event of a crisis. Additionally, we are always available through our 24/7 hotline at 615.941.8550.
Although each care plan is different, most of our care plans include:
- Symptom management
- Disease management
- Coordination with other medical professionals
- Communication with family members and other caregivers
- Coordination of in-home care and support services
- 24/7 support in the event of a crisis
The circumstances surrounding your needs will likely change over time. As they do, we will be there to provide you with the care you need and to recommend any appropriate changes to your care plan. Together, our team will work with you to ensure you achieve your goals and receive the best possible care.

We have an awesome nurse practitioner in Jennifer Weaver. My husband is going through chemo and she has been out every week to check on him. She's very professional but also very personable. She has been very helpful in making sure he is comfortable and has what he needs. I would recommend ACG to anyone.
