How We Got Started
Home-Aid Caregivers started in 2002 with a few thousand dollars and a few thousand prayers. My name is Joey Coker and I founded Home Aid Caregivers. I grew up in East Texas, in a small, rural community just outside of Jacksonville.
While I was growing up, I spent a lot of my time around older adults. They taught me the very best values of their generation: hard-work, self-discipline, commitment to marriage and family, responsibility, and faith in God. They also taught me honesty, integrity and humility. I am a country boy through and through which is why I started a family business. I am proud of my upbringing and the influences I enjoyed as a kid.
As I grew older, I recognized that America’s population was aging. I wanted to provide care for people the same way my family cared for their elders—with respect and dignity. It was always important to me that elders had the ability to live in their own homes enjoying what they love to do for as long as possible.
My education centered around eldercare. I graduated from Harding University and received my Master’s Degree in Long Term Care Administration from the University of North Texas.
No matter where I go, I am thankful I live in the Tyler area and grateful for my family, friends, and clients. The people I serve expect the best for their loved ones just like I do, so every family we serve gets the best we can offer.
