Why Home Care and the Home Care Book Difference
We have all your home care needs covered. Whether you need a home care provider a few hours a week or around-the-clock 24-hour care, our professional, compassionate caregivers are here to care for you, your loved one, or your patients.
Our agency provides assistance with activities of daily living, personal care, companion care and respite care services.
As the only private home care agency with a chief medical officer, Home Care Book has the unique ability to coordinate our clients' care with health care providers and provide medical oversight.
Supporting Recovery after Hospitalization
Home Care Book is able to assist with your transition home from a hospital, skilled nursing facility, inpatient rehabilitation facility or other medical setting. Our private home care plans are designed to reduce the risk of an unnecessary readmission to the hospital or medical facility from which you were discharged.
Supporting Independent Living
For older adults living at home or in an assisted living facility, having home care can help maintain independence by providing regular support and help with activities of daily living.
With more older adults increasingly living far away from other family members, older adults may become isolated, putting themselves at greater risk of loneliness, falls and failure to comply with medication schedules. Home Care Book's caregivers reduce these risks and provide the support older adults need to keep living with their desired degree of independence.
Providing Peace of Mind and Reducing Caregiver Burnout
At least 1 in 3 adults are caring for an older adult or someone with significant health care needs. Many of these adults also are caring for younger family members and working full- or part-time. The combination of responsibilities contributes to stress buildup and eventual burnout, with negative consequences for caregivers' physical and mental health.
With a Home Care Book caregiver, older adults get trusted support and care, and their family members can take a break from caregiving duties. Respite care can be for several weeks or as needed, depending on a family's circumstances.
Supporting Home Health or Hospice Goals
Even with home health or hospice care, older adults may need extra help with bathing, toileting, meal preparation, dressing and other activities of daily living. Our personal care services can work in tandem with home health care and with hospice care.
For patients who are prescribed home health or hospice services, Home Care Book’s caregivers can provide complementary personal and custodial care services that the patient and his/her family decide they need.

“Be aware: most falls occur in the home, where tripping hazards include area rugs and slippery bathroom floors." – 2013 Journal of Injury and Violence Research study
“Each year, millions of older people—those 65 and older—fall. In fact, one out of three older people falls each year, but less than half tell their doctor. Falling once doubles your chances of falling again.” – Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
Remembering when to take your medication is extremely important:
“Non-adherence causes ~30% to 50% of treatment failures and 125,000 deaths annually” – Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
"We hired Home Care Book, which we needed when my mother was in rehab at The Legacy of Preston Hollow. While The Legacy was great, the aides working for Home Care Book really helped so much to put my mother, me, and our extended family at ease by being there when the staff could not be. The aides were kind and attentive, and did what they could to keep my mom calm and provide her with whatever she needed - first for 24 hours per day, and then just for overnight. My mother moved back to her regular residence where she already has aide service when needed right on the premises. But, if we ever need anyone else for whatever reason, I will definitely call Home Care Book. One important part about dealing with an agency is to feel that your contact there is responsive, responsible, and available. Nick was really great - he was always there, and even checked in frequently to see if we were satisfied and to ask how my mother was doing. Also, he worked closely with the social worker at The Legacy, so we were all on the same page about what care my mother needed. I have had several other experiences (in Florida), and this was by far the best." – Bonnie, Dallas, TX
"Making a decision to get home health care for my mom was difficult. Home Care Book helped with the ease and transition of getting support for my mom. My mom enjoys her caregivers and looks forward to them coming. Although I live out of state, Home Care Book is very responsive. I know my mom is being well taken care of by dedicated and compassionate staff. I would recommend Home Care Book to anyone that is looking for care for their loved one." – Kathy Indianapolis, IN
“Home Care Book assisted me while I recovered from my hip replacement. I was a little hesitant prior to using the service as I wasn’t sure about having caregivers in my home 24 hours a day. However, my concerns quickly disappeared after I met each of the caregivers. Home Care Book has a wonderful, responsive team. They were fantastic at communicating with my skilled home health. After a couple of months of 24-hour care, I reduced the amount of care to just 12 hours during the day. After a few more weeks, I was fully recovered and no longer needed assistance. I was very fortunate to have this service and recommend it to anyone recovering from a medical event." – Mary Highland Park, TX
"It’s clear Home Care Book truly cares about providing quality service. They have a responsive and knowledgeable staff." – Robert Fort Worth, TX
"Mom could not be left alone during her stay at the in-patient rehab facility. She was confused and an extreme fall risk. We needed a caregiver to be with mom as my brother and I could not stay with her around-the-clock. Home Care Book was able to complete mom’s in-person assessment within a couple of hours of calling. They had a caregiver begin staying with mom that same day. All of the caregivers that worked with mom were kind, patient and truly cared for her well-being. This is a fantastic service and I would highly recommend Home Care Book to anyone seeking home care services." – Valarie Dallas, TX
"We have been more than pleased with the team of caregivers working with mom. The medication reminders are necessary and the companionship is fantastic." – Barbara Southlake, TX
