About 1st Texas Home Health
Since 2001, 1st Texas Home Health has been locally owned and operated. We envision a health care delivery system in which each patient receives high quality care in an atmosphere of respect for human dignity. 1st Texas Home Health seeks measures to promote the many aspects of health care that contribute to comprehensive home care, while achieving and maintaining the fiscal integrity necessary for operations.
THE BEST APPROACH. SUPERIOR OUTCOMES.
At 1st Texas Home Health, we believe that each patient and their living environment is unique and must be factored into their health-care recovery process. Our F.I.R.S.T. Program (Functional Independence Related to Safety Training) sets us apart from the other home health agencies. We address safety, educated to multiple options and recommend modifications that are realistic to individual needs. Our goals is not to only manage the homebound patients' medical condition, but to promote "safer" independent living in the home for as long as possible.
