Texas Home Health, a leader in home health care, personal care, hospice, and care management services, is looking to add qualified, passionate health care professionals to its team.

“Texas Home Health is growing rapidly and so is the health care population we serve. The vast majority of seniors prefer care delivery at home, and our innovative and proprietary programs make the home a very viable and convenient care setting,” said Tammy Steele, chief people officer at AccentCare, the parent company of Texas Home Health and a national leader in post-acute home health care services.

Part of AccentCare

Texas Home Health has been dedicated to improving the quality of living for its patients in Texas for more than 45 years, and its qualified teams work closely with community health care providers, patients and their families to compassionately deliver quality care to all those served. Texas Home Health is part of the AccentCare family, which offers a broad continuum of care services to meet a wide variety of patient and client needs.

Better training can help professionals in Intensive Care Units (ICU) avoid errors in treatment – which can have serious consequences. Teleprometheus brings information technology and health care together, allowing ICU professionals in Greece (Crete) and Cyprus to follow short online courses and find information at the touch of a screen.

Heleni Nikolau, who works in Nicosia General Hospital’s ICU department, explains how it helps in her daily life.

“When I first came to this department they told me about Teleprometheus. I actually had one patient who needed a specific procedure, so it took me around five or ten minutes using the platfoms to find out what I had to do.”

“Some 400 healthcare professionals in two hospitals in Cyprus and Greece use this €650,000 e-learning system, which is largely financed by Europe’s Cohesion Fund.

Teleprometheus provides on-demand multimedia training material for nurses, doctors, psychologists… working in the ICU, but is also an interactive tool to share cases with other professionals abroad.

Dr Marinos Michaelides, an anaethesiologist, says: “We can receive information from other centres which I’ve never had the chance to visit or discuss with doctors patients’ cases, but with this kind of system, what is essential, the important thing, is to break down barriers and distances.”

The interactive platform will soon be working at full strength. There are two Teleprometheus screens in the ICU and another one just outside for patients’ families. Hundreds have already benefited from the service, where they can see exactly what treatment their loved ones are receiving at hospital, and even at home.

Nikolau adds: “The information is in a language which is easy for them to understand. It doesn’t use confusing medical terms. It’s very easy for them to understand what is their relative’s medical problem.”

“AccentCare’s wide variety of innovative services ranges from personal, non-medical care to skilled nursing, rehabilitation, hospice and care management. Headquartered in Dallas, AccentCare has over 20,000 compassionate professionals in more than 150 locations, collectively serving over 90,000 individuals across 11 states,” Steele said.

AccentCare is a leader in the home health industry, with a focus on avoidance of unplanned re-hospitalizations, faster starts of care and quality performance, earning a 4.3-star rating for quality from the Centers for Medicare Medicaid.

All AccentCare hospice locations are Community Health Accreditation Partner-accredited, many with designations from the We Honor Veterans program.

“Texas Home Health has a culture of caring, integrity and collaboration. Working in home health allows clinicians to build relationships with their patients, supporting them throughout the duration of care and optimizing both their patients’ health and independence in the comfort of their homes,” Steele said. “And our employees are supported, too. We offer a team-driven environment, excellent training, recognition programs and career ladder plans.”

The company offers a comprehensive benefits plan that includes health, dental and vision coverage; life insurance; disability; 401(k); paid holidays and paid time off; and more.

“We operate, and are continuously growing, across the state. Our Texas organizations are expanding at a rapid pace in the areas of home health, hospice and personal care. We are consistently adding talented nursing and therapy professionals to our dedicated teams to deliver exceptional care in the communities we support,” Steele said.

Specifically, Texas Home Health is looking for registered nurses, licensed vocational nurses, physical therapists, physical therapy assistants, occupational therapists, certified occupation therapy assistants and home health aids, among other positions.
