where it all began...

Tommy and Jana Gillis are both graduates of Dripping Springs High School, classes of '79 and '82. Tommy served for 24 years with the Austin Fire Department and retired as a Captain in 2012. They have run a successful real estate company in Central Texas for the past 5 years.

They know first hand the amount of commitment and love needed to care for their residents. They took care of Tommy's beloved grandmother, Aileen Gillis, for many years in their home. At that time, there were so few options available for assisted living and help for the elderly. Now there are plenty, and they seek to help others find the resources within the community, whatever their desires are.
