Catalina In-Home Services is the premier home care provider in Southern Arizona. Locally owned and operated by the Clinco family for nearly four decades, Catalina is an award-winning company that has served thousands of Tucson families. A specialist in-home care, we are distinguished by the Catalina Care Model, which combines highest-quality caregiving, expert nursing oversight and concierge administrative management for a personalized and coordinated home care experience.
In 1981, Judy Clinco, RN realized her mother Helen needed special support. Helen was gradually becoming forgetful and frail, yet wanted to continue living independently. To stay at home, Helen needed professional structure, coordinated care, and caregivers equipped to address her specific needs. There were no providers in Tucson who could meet Judy’s standard of excellence, so she founded Catalina and developed the Catalina Care Model to serve her mother and her community. In every aspect of its function, Catalina is committed to client well being, and delivers care with the same quality and respect that Judy sought for her own mom.
As advocates for both consumers and workers, Catalina has promoted legislation that improves working conditions for caregivers, supported caregiver training opportunities in Tucson, and participated in local and national conversations on home care, aging in place, and quality of life for seniors. Catalina In-Home Services continues in its mission to set the standard of excellence for home care available in our community and we plan to continue serving the greater Tucson region long into the future.
