To provide the highest quality non-medical in-home senior care possible, helping people live with dignity in their homes. By really taking the time to match the best caregivers with the right clients, we can provide the kind of individual attention that clients and their loved ones sincerely desire. This simple but very important aspect of our mission is what ADL Caring Companions is all about. We support our clients and their families by providing flexible care based upon their individual needs and requests. We are always accessible and offer services seven days a week, 24 hours a day.
Founded in 2002 in San Antonio, Texas, ADL Caring Companions has made a big impact in the communities we serve. After just three years of operating in our home location, the San Antonio office was ranked in the top ten of San Antonio’s home health agencies (ranked by the San Antonio Business Journal based upon number of patients served in 2005).
More Than Just a Business
Our president and founder, Mr. Patrick O’Hare, saw the need for top-quality assistance for the elderly through his family’s experience with his maternal grandmother who was diagnosed with an aggressive form of lung cancer. Mr. O’Hare’s mother and her two sisters dropped everything to care for their mother around the clock. Though there were a lot of great stories, laughter and tears during those final days, the amount of strain it placed on the family was overwhelming. In the end, this great lady received outstanding care from her daughters until she passed away peacefully in her own home and surrounded by family and friends.
Most families just do not have the family members and time to do the same for their loved ones. Seeing a need, Mr. O’Hare decided that helping the elderly to safely live in their own homes with would be more than just a good business it would fill a need in his community. As a result, ADL Caring Companions was born. A second office was opened in Dallas in 2004, proving that our idea of in home private duty senior care was one that would work in other markets as well.
The Franchise Future of ADL Caring Companions
With our system, we have substantially large operations in both of the major metropolitan areas we serve. With that in mind, combined with the increasing need for quality private duty senior care, we decided the best way to share our dream, our vision and our philosophy was to offer ADL Caring Companions as a franchise opportunity. Our franchisee selection process is very stringent as we are only looking for people with the right kind of attitudes and ideals. We’re looking for serious people who want to build a substantial business. We’re committed to the same level of quality in helping our franchisees that we demand from ourselves everyday.
