I am Jack Olsen. I started Southern Home Health Care back in 1983 and frankly have never had so much fun in a job! I like people and thrive on being able to be of use to folks.
As an elderly fellow myself and a one time commercial fisherman, Vietnam vet, Registered Nurse with some years of Emergency Room experience, I have loved being the Chief Cook & Bottle Washer for Southern Home Health Care since day one.
My business card reads: “Jack Olsen, R.N. CCABW” and that is me.
I have had the opportunity to work with hundreds of wonderful people over the past 30 years and truly hope they all feel as good about me as I do about them.
As a grandfather of five, I know the importance of staying as independent as possible in order to be able to keep up with all the good things life has to offer!
Sometimes, we all need a little help to keep living life on our own terms. I do my level best to assist people in their efforts to stay at home and thrive. It is a very doable thing and I like finding ways to make it work.
Personally, I am very familiar with the difficulties of getting older.
I have been there and know that it is attitude – not health – that makes a person live long and stay happy.
I too have had cancer, open heart surgery and I am now totally blind. This is a challenge, of course. But, I am also happy, busy, loved and able to return that love. Life is good!
The way I figure it, why settle for unhappy when happy takes fewer letters and is easier to accomplish.
I understand how important your family is to you and want my clients to know that their families are also important to me. I understand that you want only the best and most qualified caregivers to help you or your loved ones.
That is why maintaining the best workforce of caregivers, home health aides, LPNs and RNs is among my very top priorities!
I know that choosing a caregiver helper can be a very stressful and personal decision. With Southern Home Health Care, you can rest assured that we only hire the best and we conduct a thorough background check for licenses, certifications, and any negative factors.
I would never send someone to your home that I would not happily have in my own!
We are all part of one big family here in Pinellas County. I have spent the better part of my life in Gulfport and St. Pete building a reputation for myself, my business and my family.
When you place your trust in my business for such an important decision, I will do everything in my power to make sure you never regret that decision!
