Alzheimer's Home Care in Houston & Katy
At Your Side Home Care is a licensed home care agency with the state of Texas. Our owners Donna Wrabel, LMSW, and Rick Wrabel have personal involvement in every case our home care agency takes on. You will deal with one, or both, of them throughout the process from your initial contact to the implementation of services and beyond.
We have terrific caregivers who are hand picked by the owners. In addition to criminal background and reference checks, we spend many hours with these individuals before they are brought on to our staff. Caregivers are given assignments based on their background and experience as well as their "personality fit" with each client we work with. All of our caregivers pass the test our owners ask themselves, "Would we feel good about having this individual working with our family members?"
