Home Care for Every Situation

Free In-Home Assessment

The Admission And Referral Process

ADMISSIONS:
  • The Admission Process begins with the initial intake during a call or visit from the client or the family.  Here we ask pertinent questions and gather the required information to move on to the next step.  All information collected is kept confidential and in-house.  We do not share private data with anyone without the client or family member’s written consent.
  • We will schedule an In-Home Assessment, where the client is evaluated, and the home is surveyed for any potential hazards or safety concerns.  To provide the best care and meet Texas HHSC regulations, Texas Angels much complete an In-Home Assessment before the start of care.  Suppose the client is currently in the hospital or at a rehabilitation center, nursing facility. In that case, we will perform the client assessment at the facility and then visit the home for the Safety Inspection.  Please bring copies of your Advance Directive, OOH-DNR, Medical POA,  a list of your current medications, and identification along with your health insurance card (not required for private pay).
  • Once the Consent for Treatment is signed, our scheduler will call you and set up a caregiver schedule that best fits your needs. Our caregivers will then arrive at your home to provide care on the scheduled days.
REFERRALS
  • We currently receive direct referrals from Discharge Planners, Social Workers, Nurses, Doctor’s Offices, Hospitals, Nursing Homes.
  • Referrals from Support Groups, Churches, Friends, and Family members are greatly appreciated but, we accept referrals from everyone.
  • Referrals may be called into Texas Angels or faxed to our office at (817) 727-4576. In most cases, facilities need to fax a Discharge Packet with a cover sheet explaining the basic needs.
  • The more information we receive, the more efficiently we can provide care, and below are the basic demographics required.

        Name, address, age, and major diagnoses (i.e., hip fracture, dementia)

Texas Angels Home Care receives most referrals, by word of mouth, because of our reputation. We are grateful that the hospitals and rehabilitation centers in the Fort Worth Area make up most of our referrals.  We are honored when we receive referrals from clients too.

Thank you for all the referrals! They are greatly appreciated.
