Why SEI Healthcare Started
In the late 1990’s, Beau Brothers and his family encountered a frustrating dilemma that many families face when seeking qualified homecare for their loved ones. He needed homecare services for his grandmother. They could not find a trustworthy company to provide care and struggled to find caregivers that were capable, trustworthy and kind. “When my grandmother began needing help at home on a full-time basis, we couldn’t locate licensed, bonded and insured caregivers,” Beau recalls. “None of the caregivers were officially managed or trained, nor were they even screened for a history of criminal involvement. My family and I had very little peace of mind that my grandmother’s needs were being met. From this experience, we realized there was a real opportunity to help others in similar situations.”
Beau and Kimberly Brothers
Beau Brothers and Kimberly Brothers are both graduates of Arkansas State University where Beau attained a BSA in Accounting and Kimberly a BSA in Education. After several years of teaching, Kimberly decided to join her husband and assist in the expansion of SEI Healthcare throughout Tennessee and, together, they opened offices in Memphis, Chattanooga, Knoxville, and Johnson City. During the beginning stages of the expansion, Kimberly found herself traveling to South Carolina to assist her family in caring for her father who had been diagnosed with Stage 4 Prostate Cancer. It was a difficult experience and soon Hospice was involved. Kimberly experienced first-hand the importance of hiring COMPASSIONATE caregivers to assist in the care of loved one. Her father’s caregivers gently and professionally cared for her him while he faced the end of life’s journey and were there for her family as they endured the pain of loss.
In 2009, Beau and Kimberly expanded their family with the birth of their daughter. Isabella Brothers joined the world very early and spent over one month in the neonatal intensive care unit at Baptist Hospital in Nashville, TN. Weighing only 2 pounds, 12 ounces at her birth, she is now an active, driven young lady entering Middle School.
Together, their family resides in Franklin, TN and attends Brentwood Baptist Church. They are very active in their community and live life to the fullest each day with grateful hearts.
