With offices in Nashville, Knoxville and Murfreesboro, Senior Solutions Home Care officially added Jackson to its roster when the five-year old company held its ribbon cutting at 233-B Oil Well Road Monday.
“We opened December of (2014),” said Kunu Kaushal, partner & CEO. “This was Kingdom Care Solutions, so, essentially, it’s under different management.”
The name may have changed, but the mission remains.
“We’re trying to keep people out of nursing homes,” Kaushal said. “Our motto is, ‘Adding years to life, and life to years.’ We have two major divisions — private pay for as little as one hour at a time, and up to 24 hours, seven days a week.”
Kaushal and Melissa Warren are partners at Senior Solutions Home Care, which is based in Brentwood.
“We have five offices, 300 clients and 300 caregivers statewide,” Kaushal said. “We have about 40 clients here, and 37 caregivers.”
Kaushal said Senior Solutions has clients with memory loss, and perhaps a spouse simply needs a few hours a day to take care of some personal business.
“They can go to the grocery store,” Kaushal said. “Or a son or a daughter can come in and truly be a son or a daughter.”
Warren said the caregiver may be the only person a client sees during the day.
“They would not have called if they didn’t need help,” Warren said. “If you call for service, we won’t say we do not have a caregiver for that area — we will find them help.”
Warren said she is aware clients have a tendency to lose their purpose in life, and that’s where Senior Solutions comes in.
“We don’t come in and take over,” Warren said. “We want good, passionate people. We can teach them the skills, but we can’t teach them the heart to care for others. They have to bring that with them.”
Tish Browning, senior advocate/marketing with Senior Solutions, supervises the Jackson office.
“We have a caring heart, because some of us have had to be a caregiver ourselves,” Browning said. “The (client) is like our own family member, and it’s very personal to us.”
