Home health group steps in to help displaced elderly community

Posted: Updated:

A home health care group is helping some of the people sheltering at the Ben Garza Gym. 

Encompass Home Health Care is stepping in and focusing it's attention on the elderly residents staying there. They're partnering with the Red Cross to help elderly people in the shelters move to permanent homes. Those could include a senior center or a nursing home, where seniors can receive the specialized health care they need. 

Important to note, the Red Cross provides medical care and treatment to all of those elderly residents while they're in the shelter but the overall goal is to help them find a safe and permanent living situation.
