Welcome to Houston – Southwest’s Home Instead blog. We have created this blog as a forum for those of us who are experiencing the challenges one faces when caring for an aging parent or a senior loved one.
The responsibility of caring for an aging parent or loved one can be overwhelming. Over 12 years of caring for Texas seniors has taught us that finding the information that one needs to make wise and timely decisions can be frustrating and time intensive.
Our hope is that everyone will utilize this blog as a clearing house for helpful information that will help those in need and those in crisis to make intelligent, timely decisions derived from professional opinion and personal experience.
We will all benefit from one another by actively participating in this blog. Every story is an important story and every experience needs to be shared. Together we can change the face of aging one shared story at a time.
Please notice the buttons to the right of this screen. These shortcuts are designed to help you become informed about Home Instead Senior Care, as well as, stay current with updates and comments to our blog.
Thank you for your visit to our blog. Please share your story or comment now. Your shared experience could be the difference with someone making an intelligent decision. All of us at Home Instead of Houston look forward to your participation.
The Staff at Home Instead Senior Care of Houston – Southwest
Meet the Owner
Chris Lerch, owner of Home Instead Senior Care of Houston – Southwest feels that the home care business was a lifelong calling for him. He chose to become involved with Home Instead because he felt that the vision the Hogans (Home Instead Senior Care founders) shared was of a community-minded business light years ahead of anyone else in the business.
Chris opened the Houston Southwest office in November of 1997 and finds unending motivation comes from his clients, the CAREGivers and his wonderful staff.
Though the greatest difference Home Instead makes in the community is enhancing the quality of life for Clients and their families everyday, the Houston Southwest office is also active in many non-profits that share its concern with “The Senior Experience”. In fact, every Friday, Houston’s staff takes the time to deliver meals to shut in seniors in partnership with Meals on Wheels.
Home Instead’s CAREGivers are rigorously screened and they are constantly in training. Because the Home Instead experience involves the entire staff, they too partake in comprehensive training. Quality Assurance means that our clients never meet a stranger!
