Thursday, January 10, 2013

Caring Senior Service, a national home care company, announced its newest office in Chattanooga. It is dedicated to offering custom care options that cater to the needs of elderly individuals who wish to age in place. Open as of Jan. 1, the office is at the Business Development Center and will serve Bledsoe, Bradley, Hamilton, Marion, Rhea and Sequatchie counties.  

Caring Senior Service specializes in the GreatCare Method, which provides clients with quality caregivers, care solutions and active involvement. Services available include personal care, meal preparation, respite care, light housekeeping, transportation and medication reminders, all of which are available 24 hours a day with a same day start guarantee.  

Chattanooga franchisee Bridget Johnston Holden has a personal connection to Caring Senior Service, as her mother has utilized their services over the past year. Inspired by the care provided and the improvement she saw in her mother’s health, Ms. Holden decided to join the company in order to extend further care to the Chattanooga community.

“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.”
