Chattanooga franchisee Bridget Johnston Holden has a personal connection to Caring Senior Service, as her mother has utilized their services over the past year.

“As a Chattanooga native, I am looking forward to providing a high standard of in-home care to aging residents,” said Ms. Holden. “Caring Senior Service took such wonderful care of my mother. I wholeheartedly believe that everyone should have access to the same quality service as they look to age in the comfort of their homes.”

“Familiar with Ms. Holden and her mother’s experience with Caring Senior Service, we are really honored to have her as a part of our team,” said Jeff Salter, founder and CEO of Caring Senior Service. “It is always our goal to support families with their aging loved ones, but it is particularly rewarding to have one of our satisfied clients join us in our mission to provide the best care available.”
