Primary Home Care
Our team offers this option to adults whose health problems cause them to have limited functionality for daily living activities. This is a personal care program that is non-technical and designed to assist with various tasks at the individual’s home.
Primary home care services include:
- Bathing, dressing, toileting, and other grooming services
- Meal preparation and feeding
- Cleaning and laundry
- Transfer, ambulation, shopping, and other travel services
Learn more about the program’s eligibility requirements on the Texas Health and Human Services (HHS) website.
Adult Protective Services (APS)
Adult Protective Services are non-skilled and non-technical options. Our experienced teams provide this nursing care in a client’s home. Our attendant’s goal is to protect elderly (65 years or older) and disabled individuals from abuse, neglect, and/or exploitation. If you suspect or have experienced these issues impacting a loved one, we are here to support you.
Someone who has suffered from abuse, neglect, and/or exploitation may receive short-term help with the following:
- Medical care
- Home healthcare services
- Mental health services
Eligibility is determined by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services. You may get more information about Adult Protective Services from HHS or Your Texas Benefits.
