Bio
Jeff Salter worked in the home health care field, and saw a need for nonmedical home care services for seniors, so in 1991, he started Caring Senior Service in Odessa, Texas. The company expanded with several more locations throughout Texas before beginning to franchise nationwide in 2002. Franchisees offer a variety of in-home care services, including personal care, companionship, meal preparation, transportation, respite care, errand running and housekeeping. Touchscreen tablets in the homes of each client provide real-time video conferencing, caregiver tracking, and a caregiver message center using the company's proprietary software.
