Local Entrepreneurs Provide Award-Winning Senior Care Services and Plan to Hire 120 Caregivers in Bexar County

ROSEVILLE, Calif. (June 05, 2017)Always Best Care® Senior Services, one of the leading senior care franchise systems in the United States, announced that it has opened its ninth franchise in Texas. Always Best Care of Northern San Antonio provides senior care services in San Antonio and the surrounding communities, including Stone Oak, Alamo Heights, Shavano Park, Westover Hills, Windcrest and Live Oak. The home care agency, located in The Courtyard at Camino Real at 14855 Blanco Road, Suite 307, is owned and operated by husband-and-wife team Wendy and Patrick O’Kane. The O’Kanes plan to create jobs for as many as 120 caregivers in the local community.

“Several of my family members were faced with health conditions that required constant care and assistance, therefore I often made sacrifices in my life to help improve the quality of theirs. While I wouldn’t trade it for the world, I am comforted knowing there are services such as Always Best Care that can help others who are not able to be caregivers to their loved ones,” said Wendy O’Kane.  “After over a year of searching for the right franchise opportunity, we found that Always Best Care provides the best resources to set their franchisees up for success. We are thrilled to bring these services to San Antonio and will strive to positively impact the community we serve.”

Patrick brings more than three decades of business administration and commerce experience in natural gas operations and commodity trading.

She also serves on the Walk to End Alzheimer’s committee in San Antonio through the Alzheimer’s Association. Over the years, both Wendy and Patrick have served as the sole caregiver for several family members with various disabilities and serious health conditions.

“We are elated to bring on such a passionate and family-oriented team to Always Best Care,” said Jake Brown, President of Always Best Care. “The O’Kanes have strong personal ties to their community and the services that we provide, and we are confident that they will build a successful business within the San Antonio area.”
