Graduating from the University of Montevallo in Alabama, Benny has always had a desire to help others. He has been in the healthcare industry for 20 years, and an entrepreneur from very early on. His desire to help seniors enabled him to put the capital together to go out on his own in 2004, when he started Heavenly Care Home Health, Inc. He quickly realized he could serve seniors in an additional way, and began Heavenly Care Moving Services, Inc. in 2005.
Since then, both businesses have grown substantially due to the focus on quality care and the mission of Providing Home Care and Moving SOLUTIONS. Heavenly Care Moving is now local and nationwide, serving residential, commercial, and long distance. “It’s the best decision I’ve ever made,” states Benny of starting his businesses. “I know I make a difference every day, and I am proud of my team in the field and everything they do.” He’s also very proud of his marriage of 20 years to wife Alice, and their children, Cole, Cecilia, and Benny III.
Alice brings over 20 years of experience in Health Care Management to Heavenly Care Home Health. With an MBA from the University of Alabama and a Bachelor of Business Administration from the University of Montevallo, her love and dedication to the lives of Seniors brought her to work with Emeritus Senior Living. Serving in various capacities for over 17 years, including Vice President of Operations, she positively impacted both the quality of care delivered and the profit metrics within her Division’s 60 properties and over 5,000 units.
In 2004, she co-launched Heavenly Care Home Health and Heavenly Care Moving in 2005. These Austin based companies lead with the Mission of Creating Home Care and Moving SOLUTIONS by offering Private Duty medical and non-medical Home Care and both local and nationwide Moving. Alice also serves on the Texas Silver Haired Legislators Advisory Council, and is the Co-president of the Coming of Age Board.
