Doris Kasold

Doris Kasold – President & Owner

For 30 years Doris worked for the News Media company Gannett, Inc., 27 of which she was a Vice President of Circulation for USA Today. She helped build the newspaper from it’s beginning, by creating excellence in delivery and customer service. Her success has always come from putting people first, above all else – her employees and clients – and encouraging them to put their priorities first in their own lives. Doris is a natural leader, selecting the best people for the task at hand. She supports her team by making sure they have the tools and quality education programs they need to excel.

“When the opportunity to buy a home care company in the Tampa Bay area presented itself, I knew this was a way I could make a difference in the lives of others. I am proud to say that our caregivers are of the highest caliber and are individuals that I would trust to care for my own mom and dad.”

With over 20 years of experience in the Beauty & Service Industry, Renee brings a passion for serving others to our company. One of the things she loves most about Home Care Assistance is our natural, proactive approach to care. “The Cognitive Therapeutic Method we use has been proven to aide in slowing down cognitive decline in our seniors. It’s a great way for our Caregivers to get our clients to exercise their brain and it’s a fun way to spend their time together. I grew up playing cards and solving puzzles with my Grandparents, who are still enjoying their lives in their own home. It makes me very happy that we are able to make a difference in people’s lives.”
