About Us

Providing Senior Assistance in the Pursuit for Freedom, Independence, and Security at Home

Our Story

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 in Portland, TX 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 while aging in place.
