Q. In what areas are your services available?
We’re pleased to offer our personalized senior care services throughout the Corpus Christi, Texas area, including Nueces, Aransas, San Patricio, Kelberg, and Refugio counties.
Q. How do I know if my loved one needs in-home care?
When a loved one is in the beginning stages of showing signs of loss of functionality, and ideally even before then, it’s a good idea to begin your search for a care solution. Our services are customized to each individual’s needs, and modified as needs change.
Q. What kind of services do you provide?
We help seniors at home with a wide range of non-medical needs, including planning and preparing meals, light housework and laundry, assistance with bathing, showering, dressing and grooming, transportation, running errands, companionship, specialized care for dementia and other chronic conditions, and much more.
Q. How quickly can I arrange for service?
We pride ourselves on making it a top priority to respond quickly when there’s a care need, and can arrange services the same day we receive a request.
Q. Do you require a minimum of hours and days a week in order to provide care?
To provide the highest quality care, we require a minimum of four hours of service.
Q. How are your caregivers screened?
Each member of the Anthem Home Care team undergoes extensive background checks by the Texas Department of Public Safety.
Q. What are the advantages of home care?
With personal home care services, individuals receive exactly the level of care needed, at exactly the time they need it. Each senior has exclusive access to his or her caregiver for as much or as little time as requested, and as a result, can maintain full control over what will be done each day, adhering to his or her own preferred schedule. And it’s true: there’s no place like home for comfort, security, and peace of mind!
Q. Are your services available in nursing homes or assisted living facilities?
Anthem Home Care services are available wherever a senior resides, including private homes, retirement communities, nursing homes, and assisted living facilities.
Q. What if my caregiver is sick and cannot make it to my house?
If a scheduled caregiver is unable to come when scheduled due to illness, an emergency situation, or vacation, another equally equipped caregiver will come in the interim.
