Our GreatCare® method addresses the 3 most important areas of concern: quality caregivers, care solutions, and active involvement. Through this method, we provide in-home care solutions to help seniors avoid relocation from their homes while maintaining their safety and independence. Our resources and experience in the industry help change the lives of seniors and their families by giving them the control they need to make aging in place their first option.

Our Story

Caring Senior Service was founded by Jeff Salter in 1991. He had been working for a home health company in Odessa,Texas, and realized that many seniors wanted help with tasks of everyday living, like bathing, running errands, and preparing food. However, nurses and staff at home health care companies didn't provide this type of service. He founded his first Caring Senior Service location in Odessa to help fill that gap in senior care.

By 1994, Jeff had moved to McAllen, Texas, and opened a new Caring Senior Location there. Within a few years, he opened additional locations in Corpus Christi, the Coastal Bend, and San Antonio.

In 2002, Jeff determined that the best way for Caring Senior Service to grow was through franchising. Through his 10 years of owning and managing Caring offices, Jeff created a successful business model. Through franchising the company, he was able to share that model with other entrepreneurs to ultimately reach more families and provide more high-quality care to seniors in need.

Today, Caring Senior Service operates about 50 locations across the United States. We continue to improve our elder services to better meet the needs of our clients and bring positive changes to their lives. This vision, along with our dependable staff, has allowed us to grow into trusted members of the many communities we now serve.
