Our Local Team
Jimmy and Valerie Cadenhead are thrilled to be living in beautiful Hot Springs Village, Arkansas, where they are fulfilling a lifelong dream of owning their own business. When looking to become independent business owners, Jimmy and Valerie found Right at Home to be the perfect business for them. They were drawn to Right at Home's mission of improving the quality of life of those we serve and the way Right at Home's employees live up to that mission each day. Moved by their personal experience with their own late grandparents, Jimmy and Valerie are passionate about ensuring dignity and respect for seniors.
Jimmy and Valerie were both born in Texas. Jimmy grew up in the panhandle of Texas, and Valerie grew up all over the United States and South America. They met as freshmen in college at West Texas State where Jimmy played football. They were married their sophomore year and began a family right after graduating. Jimmy was an education major, and Valerie majored in speech pathology.
Jimmy went on to teach and coach in Texas, and then worked for a large construction company in Georgia and Tennessee. Later, he owned his own organic farm in Oklahoma, and for the last 20 years, he has worked in management for a major corporation in Arkansas, Tennessee and Ohio.
After graduating, Valerie became a full-time mom. She homeschooled their four children from kindergarten through grade 12. She also taught private Spanish classes and tutored Spanish. In addition, Valerie has enjoyed volunteering at crisis pregnancy centers. Valerie had the privilege and pleasure of caring for her own grandmother in her final weeks of life.
Jimmy and Valerie’s children are all married and starting families of their own. As a result, the Cadenheads now boast of eight grandchildren!
The Cadenheads understand the desire of seniors and the disabled to stay in their own homes as long as possible. With highly trained and compassionate caregivers, they aim to make this a reality for many in Central Arkansas. Their mission is to improve the quality of life for those they serve.
