“At 22 years old, I walked across the street to a skilled nursing community and asked how I could help. I fell in love with the industry and not long after, I launched my own home care business so I can better serve the world.”

David Fresquez, Founder and CEO of CareSource

David Fresquez is the founder and CEO of CareSource, a home care company in New Mexico.

At the age of 22, as he was working his way through graduate school, he walked across the street to a skilled nursing community and said, “how can I help?”

With no knowledge of senior care, just raw motivation to make a difference in the world, David fell in love with the industry and launched his own home care company. Six years later he shares his secret to success.

In this episode we discuss:

  • What did you learn as a hands-on caregiver?
  • What is home care and who uses it?
  • How is it different than home health?
  • How have you responded to the impact of COVID-19?
  • What are the benefits of home care? To families and to our older adults?
  • What makes you different than other home care businesses?

“Just because the Broncos are playing on Sunday, or it’s a national holiday, our seniors still need help with daily living. Our business doesn’t stop.”

David Fresquez, Founder and CEO of CareSource
