ABOUT 5 STAR HOME CARE
5 Star Home Care and our caregivers exist to assist individuals living with a disability, recovering from an injury or illness, or facing daily challenges that come with aging. Our in-home care agency provides the basic in-home care services that facilities do – light housekeeping, meal preparation, companionship, transportation and social activities – without removing the senior from the familiarity of home. Our company of in-home care providers has provided senior care services with the highest quality of care to hospitals and other healthcare facilities in the surrounding Chattanooga area since 2000.
Kenny Higdon started Chattanooga-based 5 Star Home Care in 2007 after his family could not find a caregiver his mother trusted enough to care for his aging grandmother. “Mom wanted to find someone caring and honest who would be gentle with my Grandmother, but was unable to find an agency she was comfortable with so she ended up providing the care herself, at great personal expense,” he said. “Filling this need for families is the reason I started 5 Star Home Care.”
This sense of trust is at the core of 5 Star Home Care. All of 5 Star’s caregivers are screened, trained, bonded, insured and supervised. 5 Star only hires caregivers who truly care and want to be in the business of helping people. Helping clients maintain their independence, dignity and privacy is what they strive to do above all.
5 Star is a cost efficient alternative to an assisted living facility that preserves the aging loved one’s sense of freedom and comfort. The company’s procedures are tailored to work towards constant monitoring, care management and never placing the senior at risk of being left without care.
