Meet the Team at Caring Senior Service of Chattanooga

Chattanooga Owners - Amy and Ivan Widen

We are Amy & Ivan Widen, the owners of Caring Senior Service of Chattanooga. Amy has a nursing degree from Chattanooga State and worked as a nurse for many years. Ivan has a robotics and engineering degree from BCIT in Canada and has previous business experience as the owner of a computer sales and service company. We chose to open our own home care business because we truly want to make a difference in senior's lives. We enjoy making personal connections with our caregivers and the seniors we serve. We believe that every senior should be able to remain healthy, happy, and home, as does our staff. 

The Care Team

The Caregiver

The Caregiver is the backbone of Caring Senior Service. So, joining our team of caregivers means being the best of the best. This is because we only hire caregivers that express a passion for serving others. We know that having this quality is equally as important as having the required work experience. In addition to hiring with an eye for passion we only hire caregivers with at least one year experience working with seniors or those who have a CNA license.

The Care Manager

The Care Manager has a great job. It starts from the very first visit with a client. Getting to know the client is very important to the Care Manager. It helps her pick the right caregivers to deliver care. The Care Manager makes sure the best caregiver is matched based on skill, experience, and personality. Once care starts the Care Manager makes regular visits to the home to make sure the care plan remains up to date and that everyone is happy with care.

The Agency Director

The Agency Director makes sure each and every client receives GreatCare®. She manages the rest of the team so that our clients get the best possible service day or night. She does this by making sure the steps in our GreatCare® method are followed by everyone on the Caring team. With over 25 years helping seniors remain home we’ve learned that it’s our method that makes the difference. The Agency Director has the important responsibility of making sure that the statement “We provide GreatCare®” is not just what we say it’s what we do.
