Always Best Care Senior Services Opens New Agency and Expands Existing Services in Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex

Leading Senior Care Franchise Grows National Footprint in Texas to Nine Locations

Always Best Care® Senior Services, one of the leading senior care franchise systems in the United States, announced today it has opened a new agency in the greater Dallas area. Always Best Care of Southlake/Denton, which is owned and operated by Shane Carpenter, serves communities including Southlake, Flower Mound and Denton, among others. In addition, Marcus Gardner, owner of the Always Best Care of Dallas, has expanded his services to reach more communities, including Fort Worth, Mid-Cities and Arlington.

Prior to joining Always Best Care, Shane Carpenter spent 33 years working in the flooring industry having most recently served as the vice president of sales for a global flooring manufacturer. The franchisee has plans for immediate expansion into additional communities, including Frisco, Little Elm and The Colony.

 “Over the last three decades, I’ve had several family members that were ill and needed care. During those times of need, I always admired the way these caregivers not only cared for each individual, but my entire family,” said Carpenter. “Now, I have found a way to give back and help others through Always Best Care. From personal and skilled care to assisted living placement, we offer a full suite of services to fulfill any family’s caregiving needs.”

Marcus Gardner has been an Always Best Care owner for nearly a decade. He is one of the brand’s top-performing franchisees in the system, and was recently named Always Best Care’s 2017 Franchise of the Year.
