History of Caring Senior Service
In 1991, Jeff Salter saw a need for a company to assist the elderly with certain needs in their homes such as non-medical services like bathing, dressing, errand running, housekeeping and meal preparation. Jeff worked in the home health industry, where nurses came in to the home and administered skilled services such as disease management, health monitoring, medication delivery or other medical care, then went on to see another patient.
That same year, Jeff founded the first professional senior care company in Odessa, Texas to meet that need.
With Caring Senior Service, people could have a resource to call on 24 hours a day, with assistance just a phone call away. Clients had the assurance that caregivers were screened thoroughly, and that they had a company that would ensure the quality of their care. The other great benefit was the cost, Caring allowed substantial flexibility over the hours when the caregivers were present, allowing the client to maintain their independence at a fraction of the cost of assisted living facilities - customer control over hours was a novelty at the time.
With our success has come growth. In 1993, Jeff expanded the business to McAllen, Texas.
We expanded our services to Corpus Christi to serve the Costal Bend area in 1994 and in 1996, we opened our office in San Antonio - which then became our corporate headquarters. And in 1998 our 5th office in Texas' state capital, Austin was opened.
We established a franchising program in 2001, which allowed for rapid expansion into new cities and allowed more seniors to receive the benefits of the Caring Senior Service philosophy.
Though our company is growing, we are staying true to what has made us a success, putting the client first and providing quality caregivers.
