Contact: Mary Kasinger, Administrator
In 2009, Tom and Rhesa Brewster saw a great need for a Christian in-home care company in the Dallas area and launched Heritage Keepers. The concept was to provide care for the physical needs of senior adults but to also address the emotional and spiritual needs by placing Christian caregivers with clients. By praying with clients and encouraging them in spiritual issues, it was hoped that this would fill a gap that was desperately needed in the senior community.
Years later, it is obvious that this approach has been successful. Heritage Keepers has worked with many seniors and families of seniors over these years and has been blessed to care for some wonderful people. Heritage Keepers’ caregivers are the life blood of the company and they do a wonderful job completing the “Circle of Care” for their clients.
Tom has been an entrepreneur since 2002, owning several businesses since then. Recently, he decided to go into full-time ministry leading a missions organization, Engage Hope. He has left the reigns to Heritage Keepers to Mary Kasinger who has done a fantastic job taking care of our clients.
Tom and Rhesa have been married for 24 years and have three children, Will, Anna and Holly. They are members of Prestonwood Baptist Church.
