Covenant Premium Senior Care is a locally owned and operated family business that provides in-home care to seniors in the Fort Bend and Harris Counties. Our founders, Claudia and Dr. Derrick Jackson started the business as a result of aging parents. Back then, Derick’s time was predominantly spent hiring, evaluating and auditing staff for assisted living senior care facilities around the U.S. During his time working with these companies and hundreds of seniors, Dr. Jackson realized that in many cases seniors just wanted to live happy lives in the comfort of their own homes – rather than in senior care facilities away from their families.
However, many seniors did not have the support or resources to make this happen. As the Jacksons had many conversations and sleepless nights about this dilemma they made a Covenant with God that if given the opportunity, they would do their very best to care for as many of the seniors as they could by providing a premium service to everyone they meet. This was the inception of Covenant Premium Senior Care – a home care provider that is grounded on integrity, compassion and kindness.
About the Founders
Claudia Jackson holds an Executive MBA from the University of Iowa and has worked for several large organizations in accounting and finance. The organizations include leading the purchasing and accounting department for Saudi Aramco Oil Company schools to handling customer tax for Wells Fargo to basic accounting for Chuckee Cheese. Claudia left the corporate world in 2012 to be the primary care giver for her grandmother. The time spent caring for her grandmother taught Claudia the value of life. These years also lead the Jacksons to believe that a special type of person was needed to care for the elderly. These people should be patient, understanding, caring, and compassionate and treat elderly as they would their own grandparent.
Derrick has continued to work in corporate America with a PhD from Capella University in organizational development and an Executive MBA from the University of Iowa. He has worked at the Director level in many large Senior Care organizations evaluating people, process and procedures of these organizations. Derrick was also the primary care giver for his mother who died from lung cancer in 2003. This experience coupled with working in senior care enabled the vision of creating a covenant between the Jacksons and the senior community.
