HUDSON — Caldwell Home Services cut the ribbon on their new location on Wednesday, celebrating the company’s grand re-opening.
The business provides in-home care services for elderly and disabled people by assisting clients with personal care and activities of daily living.
When Amanda Collins first purchased the business in 2017, the company spent a brief amount of time in Lenoir.
She moved Caldwell Home Services back to Hudson.
“This is my hometown. I want to serve the people where I grew up,” Collins said. “It’s a grand-reopening but it’s kind of like a whole new business with the same name. The only thing that hasn’t changed is our level of care.”
The company’s personal care staff is supervised by licensed, skilled professionals with over 15 years of experience in providing home care services to individuals, and pride themselves on the affordability of care, she said.
Collins, who has a bachelor’s degree in social work, said, “I want people to know that we’re not just a home care agency. We want to be a resource in the community.”
“Anyone can pop in that is in need of help or guidance in regards to any social needs like where to get food or shelter,” she said. “Especially new and arriving people, they don’t really know where to go, and I’m happy to help with that.”
Most health care clients are referred to the business through Medicaid, the Veterans Administration, and word of mouth from members in the community but those in need of friendly guidance are welcome guests of the business, Collins said.
Jessica Teeters, who helped with the new logo and branding, said “the motto is ‘caring that never ends’,” and she feels it perfectly illustrates both the business and employees approach to caregiving.
Hudson Mayor Janet Winkler was among the ribbon cutting attendees.
“We are so thrilled to have this business in Hudson. They do an amazing job with a caring heart,” she said.
