Thomas Layton’s Legacy
John and Virginia Walker started Caring for People Services in 2005 after their son, Thomas Layton, lost his battle with cancer at the age of 26.
As described by his father, Thomas had a heart made of gold, always going out of his way to help those around him. Thomas was living in California when he began experiencing very severe headaches. Doctors discovered a tumor quickly swelling inside his head and operated. The Walker family brought Thomas home to Omaha following his procedure. Caring for Thomas was a 24 hour, 7 day a week commitment for Virginia until he passed away.
To honor Thomas’s memory, John and Virginia felt compelled to help others find caring people to help their loved ones in need. Caring for People Services was formed with the goal to provide compassionate care for people of all ages through professional, ethical and quality service.
Wishing to expand this success beyond the local market, Caring for People Services chose franchising as the next step through rigorous adherence to the founding principles, practices, and procedures as implemented by our home office.
