Assisting Hands Houston, an assisted-living service franchise in the Houston, TX area, is very pleased to provide senior services to their patients. The franchisor, Assisting Hands, operates 80 such franchise locations across the United States. Their elderly care services can help those who need in-home health care, pregnancy recovery, are handicapped, etc. The service's Humble, TX site, located at 1250 Indiana St, is excited to supply these care services to seniors.

The company provides in-home and elder care services for seniors. In recent decades health care professionals and experts have acknowledged the need for individuals to receive in-home health care. The national population is entering their golden years in record-breaking numbers. Elder care services are also on the rise, according to Hindawi.com. They say that more than 20% of older adults (those aged 60 and above) currently receive community-based support and services, which include home-delivered meals and transportation services. Terri Robbins, president and owner of the Houston Assisting Hands franchise says, “We are happy to help provide solutions to the increasing need for senior care services in this country.” Customers can receive more information on the company's senior services by calling 281-540-7400.

In Home Healthcare Houston services from Assisting Hands include help with bathing, meal preparation, grooming, and housekeeping. Assisting Hands screens, hires and trains its employees in first aid and CPR, and gives them ongoing training to keep their skills fresh. The company staff personally visits with the individual and their family members. Then they match the client with a home care caregiver whose skills and experience best match the new client’s needs. Some of the advantages of using a home care agency over an independent caregiver include: an agency is bonded, insured and direct hire caregivers who do not work for an agency are not, an agency will offer to provide a replacement if the caregiver cannot make it to work and if an independent caregiver doesn’t show up the client will need a backup plan, and if the client hires directly they are responsible for training, disciplinary action and terminating while an agency handles these responsibilities.

Elder Care from Assisted Hands includes such services as help with respite hours for family caregivers, reverse mortgages, Medicare benefits, and aid in attending senior social events. The Hindawi.com reports that with the rapid aging of the population the number of older adults who could benefit from community-based support and services is expected to increase significantly in the coming years.

Robbins says, “Assisting Hands believes in coordinating the full spectrum of elder care services available in the community. They help each client in identifying additional community elderly care services like those available from the Area Agency on Aging, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, Veteran’s Administration, and local senior centers.”

Terri Robbins’ home health care agency in Humble, Texas serves north Houston, Kingwood, Spring, Crosby, Huffman, New Caney, Porter, and Splendora. And she leads the team of Houston-area franchises as the area representative. She and her mother had a dream of owning and operating a hospice business. Before they could start her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. At the time, Robbins dropped off her children at school and went to her parents’ home where she bathed and dressed her mom, prepared meals, and tidied up the house. Her mother passed away in 1998 and Robbins decided to launch her own business when a franchise broker presented Assisting Hands Home Care to her. She began her research and had many conversations with Assisting Hands’ founder Dr. Gail Silverstein. Robbins was so impressed she joined the Assisting Hands Home Care company as a franchisee and the area representative in Houston. In May 2008, she opened her business in Humble to serve north Houston seniors and other residents.
