About

Jack Olsen started Southern Home Health Care in 1983.

A Registered Nurse, US ARMY veteran, and devoted family man, his family business is now one of, if not the oldest home health care agencies in the St. Petersburg region.

A one time commercial fisherman, Vietnam veteran, and Registered Nurse with Emergency Room experience, Jack considers himself the Chief Cook & Bottle Washer for Southern Home Health Care.

A fixture around the Pinellas County area for the past 38 years, Olsen has served as a volunteer with local schools, churches, civic clubs, The Boy Scouts and The Light House for the Blind. He was also elected as a City Councilman in Gulfport four times and served one year as Vice Mayor.

Southern Home Health Care is a locally owned, private medical services company assisting Pinellas County residents to be able to stay in their own homes once that time comes that they require help to do so.

The business’ mission is close to Olsen’s heart:

I am personally very familiar with the difficulties of getting old. I have been there and know that it is attitude not health that makes a person live long and be happy. I too have had cancer, open heart surgery and I am totally blind. This is a challenge, but I am also happy , busy and I am loved and able to return that love. Life is good, anything else is not!”

Choosing home based care help for yourself or your loved ones is not to be taken lightly. Jack knows the importance of family and understands that you want nothing but the best for your loved ones.
