Team Member Acacia

Acacia Abshire, Owner/CEO

Acacia is an Abilene transplant since 2015. She was born and raised in Ft. Worth, TX. Her career with Home Instead started in December of 2015, where she held a variety of positions with the last as a General Manager. In January of 2021, she had an amazing opportunity to work for Home Instead Global Headquarters. She started out as a Business Performance Coach and then moved to Franchise Operations for the corporately owned franchises for the last year. Her goal when she started this journey with Home Instead was to buy a franchise. August of this year, she was given an opportunity that she could not pass up. Abilene Home Instead has been her home since she first moved here. She has made so many amazing relationships over the years. Acacia is excited to come back to the franchise that she loves so much. Through all of her experiences, she learned that her greatest strength has always been the people around her, her honor to God and the desire to help people grow and fulfill their dreams professionally. She has always admired the selfless act of Care Professionals, and humbled to meet the needs of each senior in their journey/season of aging.  

Even though running a business doesn't leave a lot of free time, she still makes room for her passions; 3 beautiful kids, high school football games, painting, gardening and more.

Team Member Jason

Jason Abshire, Owner / COO

Jason grew up in Southern Louisiana, and decided to enlist in the armed services somewhere around my sophomore year of High School. He shipped out to San Diego, California for Marine Corp Bootcamp days after his High School graduation, and was assigned to Camp LeJeune North Carolina. Jason saw many places during his enlistment, and even spent some time in the Middle East. After fulfilling his obligation to the Military, he moved to East Texas and started a family. Jason held jobs in various industries after the military; Retail, Manufacturing, Production, Firefighting/ EMS, Oil & Gas, Railroad, and Nursing. Jason graduated from Texas Tech with a Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing and a Master of Health Administration. He left Hendrick Medical Center after eight years as a Cardiac Cath lab Nurse to join his wife in making their dreams come true. Their dream is to empower individuals with the opportunity to age in place and to increase their quality of life while doing so.
