Providing Senior Assistance in the Pursuit for Freedom, Independence, and Security at Home
In 2012, a local family and trusted friends with years of combined healthcare experience got together and agreed that there was a need for exceptional senior care Rockport and surrounding areas. From there, Anthem Home Care was created! With veterans among our founders, patriotism is of paramount importance in our culture and philosophy, and is threaded through everything we do to foster freedom and independence for the seniors we’re privileged to serve.
Our goal is to help seniors and their families feel at ease, knowing that we will provide the highest quality, fully trained and compassionate caregivers who will take care without taking charge. We truly are passionate about allowing plenty of time to listen to the older generation, for whom we have the greatest respect and admiration. We learn what’s important to them, and then work hard to make sure to honor their desired lifestyle, routines, and preferences. Texas itself stands for independence, and with Anthem Home Care, seniors can feel confident in knowing they’ll maintain the security, stability, and freedom they deserve.
Anthem Home Care is licensed by the Texas Department of Aging and Disability (License # 019251), and is rated A+ by the Better Business Bureau.
Our mission at Anthem Home Care is to provide compassionate and knowledgeable senior care in Corpus Christi and the Portland area dementia care and in-home care services to help older adults live with dignity and independence in the comfort and familiarity of home.

Advanced Caregiver Training and Certification
At Anthem Home Care, we maintain the highest standards in providing our elderly care team with an extensive level of training and certification, which enables them to feel confident in their roles and in their ability to provide an exceptional level of care. While the average home care agency provides approximately ten hours of generic training to their staff, we equip our caregivers with over 120 hours of highly specialized in-home care training.
To this end, we are proud to partner with the Institute for Professional Care Education (now Relias Learning), a nationally renowned training and certification agency for caregiving professionals, to provide customized training programs for all of our caregivers for seniors.
Our specialized training program is provided at three levels:
- “Certified Caregiver” (Level 1): Includes a variety of caregiver training tools to sharpen skills.
- “Specialized Caregiver” (Level 2): Includes specialty training in Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, and end-of-life care.
- “Master Caregiver” (Level 3): Includes advanced training in Parkinson’s disease, first aid, leadership, and more.
