What is Companion Care?

In the past decade, the word friend has changed from a noun to a verb, as in "to friend someone on Facebook." From the Greatest Generation to Baby Boomers, Generation X and Millennials, the entire paradigm of friendship and companionship has been revamped.

Alzheimer's Caregiver Diary: Tips from the Trenches (Part 2)

At Hill Country Care Providers, often we are brought into the lives of a family when a spouse or other family member has done all he or she can, has reached a breaking point and needs 24/7 professional home care.

To avoid caregiver burnout, many families are seeking professional Respite Care, including 24 hour in home care.

Alzheimer's Caregiver Diary: Tips from the Trenches (Part 1)

Let’s face it, no website, book, pamphlet, or blog (including this one) can fully prepare you to be an Alzheimer’s Caregiver for a spouse or loved one. While you might learn about the disease from the internet or a brochure, nothing is as enlightening – and overwhelming – as first hand experience as a caregiver. However, understanding that you are not alone and that millions of families share some of the same experiences may provide you consolation, and possibly inspiration.
