Here Kathy Larson shares her experiences with Teresa‘s House.
“Teresa’s House has been a wonderful change in our family’s lives. I love the small-town feel of Teresa’s House. It is locally-owned by people who have made senior care their lifelong careers. The owners are on-site daily and are all only a text or phone call away when we have a question.”
— Dana Christian
“The facility is brand new and GORGEOUS, with an open plan layout that promotes socialization and community. It is the closest thing to feeling like a modern, luxurious home where residents can feel at home. It was designed to be small enough to provide excellent, individualized care that can be stepped to each resident’s care needs as they need them.”
— Eric Gruendemann
“Not only do they provide a new, refreshing approach to memory care, but the setting is absolutely beautiful. It truly feels like home! The skilled team provides compassionate, dedicated care down to the finest detail. Since joining the TH family, our mom has blossomed, both socially and cognitively. “
— Gayle Pavlicek
Todd and Julie Brooks, McKinney, TX, share why they chose to move Julie’s parents to Teresa’s House after many years in a large senior living community.
“My husband and I placed my Mom there for respite care while we took a vacation. The care she received there was amazing! She was able to visit with other residents as well as have time to herself in her spacious bedroom either watching television or reading in her armchair. I had no reservations leaving Mom under their care.“
— Suzie Mogollon
“After just a week in Teresa’s House Memory Care I can finally sleep at night knowing my mom is safe and getting good quality care. I’m so happy her transition has gone so smoothly even though she is in the late stages of Alzheimer’s. I can’t thank you enough!“
— Kelly Ivey Rodriguez
“Teresa’s House has brought us so much peace of mind because we know our loved ones are getting wonderful care. They have thought of everything for memory care right down to a specially designed wardrobe system. All of the caregivers are so kind and care for all of their residents. We can’t say enough about the fabulous care our loved ones receive. ”
— Kathi Skinner
“Caring for aging parents doesn’t come with an instruction manual.’
Jim Davis talks about a son’s perspective and having comfort, confidence, and peace about his parent’s care.
“Teresa’s House has been a true Lifesaver for my Dad. After making the decision to find a new home for him, I received two referrals to Teresa’s House. What a difference!
He is sleeping better, eating MUCH better, and his stress-related stomachaches have disappeared. He’s smiling more, and definitely has more energy. He truly feels “Home” at Teresa’s House.“
— Kathy Larson
“This is the 3rd living facility my folks have lived in. At Teresa’s House, they are cared for by licensed nurses, certified care givers and State-certified medication techs. The response time if my folks need anything is 4-5 mins. As an RN, I can sleep at night knowing my folks are in great hands! There is not another place like Teresa’s House! I give it a 10!”
— Julie Brooks
“After a brief hospitalization and subsequent rehab, my 91 year-old father could no longer live alone. When we toured Teresa’s House, it felt like home. The smaller, intimate setting was what my Dad needed. Brenda and Godwin made us feel like family. They made a very stressful time much more bearable.
Dad has been at Teresa’s House for almost two months and he loves it! The care provided by the staff is extraordinary. They take time with him, lift his spirits, and have activities that fill the void of what used to be long, lonely days at home. I have peace of mind knowing he is engaged and happy.”
— Teri Mieritz
As a daughter and retired Registered Nurse, Jan Marie Oakley shares her insights on choosing senior care for your loved one.
“It’s been about a month since my dad moved to Teresa’s House and they have done everything we discussed and more. They are very proactively working with my dad and he is progressively improving in morale and in physical strength through physical therapy they arranged. The facility is very high quality and staff are top notch. It’s helped my mom tremendously to not have to worry or be so involved in the administrative details.
I’d highly recommend looking into what Teresa’s House offers if you’re looking to place a loved one in an assisted living “plus” or memory care arrangement.“
— Dan Weintraub
“Teresa’s House has been life changing for my 98 yo mom. Physically and mentally she has come out of the depression she was feeling from the isolation as a result of the pandemic. She is exercising and gaining weight from the delicious meals and never in her room. I feel so blessed and thankful to Teresa and Godwin for their vision in how seniors should be cared for in this stage of their life.”
— Ann Rose
“The best way to describe Teresa’s house is that it is a true home for the residents! It is not sterile and unwelcoming, the staff really care about the people that live there and it truly feels like home. Our dear friend lived there for 5 months before she passed away, her words were “I feel like I am home and people really care about me”.
— Sara Real
Two months ago, Syd Sherley saw the video that Linda Fusco made about her mom moving in. Syd’s mother was elsewhere and depressed, losing weight, and isolated, and told her, “I need to get out of here.” Syd realized that her mom could get exceptional care and made the move. She shower her mom the pictures and she responded, “Can I go now?”
Hear how Syd’s mom is now!
“We moved our parents to Teresa’s house in late September to assist with their declining health. Godwin, Teresa and their staff provided a beautiful environment, caring staff, wonderful meals and extremely helpful communication and photos of ongoing activities for our parents. My sisters and I would give a 12 star rating on a 5 point scale. Loving care does not describe what our parents received at Teresa’s House. It was more than can be described in words.“
— Jane Denton Jones
“Godwin and Teresa, may God bless you both, and the excellent skilled nursing and professionally trained staff you have amassed. I believe your vision to reimagine senior care will become in large part the future of senior care.”
— Todd Brooks
“Teresa’s House has made a world of difference in my Mom’s life. She has been at several high end big box institutions, the most of which she contracted COVID-19. After being at Teresa’s House for a few short weeks she has responded to the friendly, caring, and degreed/licensed staff and homelike environment with a complete 180 and is back to self feeding, smiling and enjoying life!”
— Brian Eubanks
“Teresa’s House has a business model which is clearly several steps above the typical assisted living facility. The positive staffing ratio of caregivers to residents and the qualifications of the caregivers results in better response times, better care and more personal attention. In short, a better quality of life.
My wife and I firmly believe Teresa’s House was the right decision and is resulting in a better quality of life for our loved ones.”
