Always Best Care Senior Services, one of the leading senior care franchise systems in the United States, announced today that Carlos A. Martinez Jr. has opened Always Best Care of McAllen in Edinburg, Texas.
The new agency provides senior care in McAllen and the surrounding communities of Mission, Edinburg, Sharyland, and Pharr.
Martinez operates the business alongside general manager, Marina De Leon. “I found my passion for helping the elderly after my grandmother passed away from dementia in February 2017, and it motivated me to get involved in the industry and finally open my own business,” said Martinez.
Martinez moved from Puerto Rico to New York City as an infant. He served in the Army from 1988-1992 before moving on to the Navy in 1996 to fulfill his dream of being a naval flight officer.
Martinez has an associate’s in criminal justice from Georgia Military College and a bachelor’s in psychology from Augusta State University. He also received his post-doctorate as a Director of Corporate Security (DSE) from the Universidad Pontificia Comillas in Madrid, Spain.
Prior to franchise ownership, Martinez had an extensive career in law enforcement and security, having worked for the U.S. Secret Service, Richmond County Sheriff’s Department, and Augusta Police Department.
“At Always Best Care, we value our veteran franchisees because they have already made a selfless commitment to our country, which translates well to the mission of our company and industry,” said Jake Brown, CEO of Always Best Care Senior Services. “We know that Carlos’ passion and background will serve him well as he embarks on this new chapter of his life.”
Always Best Care is one of the nation’s leading providers of non-medical in-home care, assisted living placement services and skilled home health care.
The company delivers its services through an international network of more than 200 independently owned and operated franchise territories throughout the United States and Canada.
Another wonderful example of an individual working hard and achieving their goals in life, only to eventually be their own boss and enter the world of business.
However, the journey does not end there.
A business is not a simple thing to manage. With finances, maintenance and positions to fill, it can be overwhelming at times.
Coverage, on the other hand, doesn’t have to be so difficult to manage for your business.
A good agent can find the best business insurance that gives you all the coverage you need and keep it protected without hindering its growth.
