Encore Caregivers: In-Home Support Services
Skilled and Experienced Caregivers in the Houston Metro Area
At Encore Caregivers, We Are Dedicated to Providing The Best In-Home Support Services To Get The Most Out Of Life.
In-home support services from light housekeeping that ensure a clean, sanitary, and organized space to companionship to personal care – ensuring the help seniors need with bathing, dressing, toileting, grooming, etc., we are here to help your loved one in any way we can. Our skilled and experienced caregivers are in seniors’ homes, condos, apartments, hotel rooms, independent and assisted living facilities, memory care units, and hospitals each and every day, caring for our neighbors.
Dementia Care, in general, and Alzheimer’s Care in particular, are two areas where Encore Caregivers shines. Our nurse is trained by the Alzheimer’s Association and the National Council of Certified Dementia Practitioners and ensures that every caregiver on staff is fully trained and tested in primary dementia care before they even leave the Encore Caregivers’ new employee orientation. When speaking to a client with Alzheimer’s Disease or dementia of any kind, do you sit? Do you stand? Do you look the client in the eye? Do you increase your volume? Do you touch the client? How do your re-direct behavior and quiet fears? All of this (and so much more) is addressed. Good, solid caregiving for a client with Alzheimer’s Disease is both a science and an art. We’ve got both down to a tee. Call us for Alzheimer’s care in Houston at (713) 686-2233 to speak with a care coordinator today.
Senior Personal Care Services
Not all of our clients need it, but when they do, each of our caregivers is trained and skilled, and ready to offer help with what the state of Texas Department of Health and Human Services calls ADLs (activities of daily living). We call it senior personal care services. It is a broad category and can be everything from walking, eating, drinking, bathing, grooming, dressing, toileting, and much more. We are helping Houston’s seniors accomplish these basic tasks daily, building their confidence and improving their quality of life. When looking for personalized in-home senior personal care, call Encore Caregivers at (713) 686-2233.
To better serve our clients, we offer a comprehensive RN Delegation Program which allows us to provide additional skilled services under the supervision of a nurse when needed.

Senior Companionship Programs
The Alzheimer’s Association and leading physicians agree that senior companionship programs are crucial to staving off cognitive decline. And that’s where Encore Caregivers come in – reminiscing, engaging in conversation and social interacting, helping with hobbies (because the senior can’t do them alone anymore or because the senior doesn’t want to do them alone), driving the senior to the doctor’s appointments, pharmacies, grocery stores, etc. One of our favorite clients said, “Let’s go to the Hill Country and look at the flowers.” We do that and so much more.
Light Housekeeping Services
The state of Texas Department of Health and Human Services allows our caregivers to do 20% of their work as light housekeeping. Basically, we keep clean, sanitary and organized the areas where the senior predominantly lives: living room, bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen. Can we change the sheets? Yes. Can we do laundry? Yes. Can we vacuum and prepare light meals and snacks? Yes, and yes. Can we dust and feed the cat? Yes, and yes. Could we pressure wash the garage? That would be a no. Could we pick up after the grandkids? No, sorry. We are taking care of your senior family member with tender, loving care – our focus stays where it should be — on the senior.
Senior Patient Transportation
Looking for senior patient transportation to and from a medical procedure? Houston, as you know, is home to one of the largest medical centers in the world. When a patient flies in for a procedure, often it’s us who meets them at the airport. Who takes them to the hotel? Us, again. Who takes them to the procedure, back to the hotel, and eventually back to the airport? You guessed it. It’s us. But on the home front, many Houston seniors need assistance getting to a procedure or are required by the hospital to have someone check them in or out post-procedure. That’s where we come in again. We laugh and say that Encore Caregivers must be on the medical community’s speed dial for procedure transportation – maybe because we are reliable and dependable, and trusted. That’s our best guess.
Encore Caregivers are working throughout the Greater Houston area 24/7.
