Compassion, integrity, family, excellence, trustworthiness, accountability, and diversity
Mike Scott, CSA, Owner
Local owner Mike Scott is a native Arkansan who has made it his mission to provide the highest quality of care to families and businesses in the Hot Springs / Benton area. After visiting his great grandmother in a nursing home, Mike learned at an early age that he did not want his grandparents or parents to be in the same position. He made a promise to his mother right then that he would not put her in a facility. As an adult, he has been able to help many families across Arkansas fulfill that same promise. Mike is a Certified Senior Advisor and is proud to be running the premier Home Care and Medical Staffing Agency in Arkansas.
