Meet the Founder & CEO, Kunu Kaushal

Kunu Kaushal is one of the latest influencers in the long-term care/ healthcare space in Tennessee. He studied business management at the University of Alabama at Birmingham and proceeded to work in multiple healthcare fields focused on the highest quality of care. Passionate about impacting the healthcare space, founding a senior care agency was a natural fit.

With the motivation of helping his grandparents as his first clients, Kunu started Senior Solutions Home Care in 2010. Today the company provides in-home care, nutritional support, and transportation services to the entire state of Tennessee and parts of Georgia and Florida.

In his free time, Kunu enjoys family time with his wife, Jill, and their three daughters. As an eternal scholar, you’ll often find Kunu researching or learning more about the art of entrepreneurship.

Grateful for the hundreds of families that trust the care of their loved ones to his team, Kunu focuses on being the market leader in the industry. Read more.
