When our mother was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in June of 2007, we became aware of the need for Texas home health care. There are six children in our family and we were able to work together, supporting and helping not just our mother and father, but just as importantly we could be there for each other. One of us could run to the store for groceries, while another could spend time trying to identify foods Mom could eat and that had the right nutritional components. There was always someone to do laundry and help Mom bathe, dress and fix her hair. We were able to take turns going with Mom to chemotherapy and radiation treatments so she never went alone. During all of this, we couldn’t help but wonder how people were able to get through a difficult time like these without a large family like ours. We were told time and time again from hospital personnel and hospice staff that our situation was not typical. Most people are not able to take time off work or leave their own families in another state to go and take care of a loved one.
Caring Solutions San Antonio was started by my sister Debbie Mammel and myself, Karen Keach, so that we could provide the Texas home health care and elderly care services San Antonio families need while going through the same challenges we experienced in caring for our mother. When the inevitable process of aging or suffering from medical conditions makes it difficult for a person to care for themselves or their loved ones, Caring Solutions can provide the compassionate, professional elderly care services needed to help them live as independently as possible while letting them keep their pride and dignity.
Many of our caregivers have raised their own children, taken care of families and have often supported their own aging parents. From these experiences, they’ve developed a deep compassion for people, and a desire to pursue the meaningful work of supporting those in need. At Caring Solutions, our most desired employee is someone who knows how, and truly enjoys making people happy. We are passionate about each caregiver we hire and are committed to helping them experience the value and satisfaction that comes from each person we help.
