Our Mission & History

Mission

We are committed to providing high quality, client-centered and affordable home care services to our clients to assist them in leading dignified and independent lives in the comfort and safety of their own homes. Their individual needs are carefully assessed, understood and met through the selective assignment of qualified, trustworthy and compassionate caregivers.

Vision

“Where there is no vision, the people will parish.” Proverbs 29:18

  • To be known and valued for providing the highest standard on in-home care services.
  • To be the provider of choice in the community.
  • To be the employer of choice in the community.

History

Most people want to live at home for as long as possible, but many are not sure where to turn or who to call to make this an option. In response to this growing need for quality in-home care for the elderly, Mike Gross started the mission of gaining feedback from local physicians, social workers, case managers and family members. He confirmed the need to have an organization they they could trust to refer to their patients and relatives. Elder Independence was founded to meet this need and has been serving all of central Arkansas since opening its doors in 1999.

Over two decades later, and under the ownership and guidance of Kim  Clatworthy since 2014, Elder Independence Home Care is still providing quality home care service throughout central Arkansas. We know that helping a loved one remain in their home can ensure they maintain that much-needed independence and comfort.

One of our greatest strengths is that we are not a franchise company. We operate as ‘your family is our family’. We are honored when a client or loved one choses Elder Independence Home Care to be their provider of choice, and we appreciate that you entrust you or your loved one’s care to us. Our promise to you is that we will show you and your family member the same level of quality, care and compassion that we provide for our own family members.
