Our Beginnings

How it All Started

Elderly Caregiver for SeniorsZack and Linda found themselves in the challenging situation of caring for their ailing parents in their 80’s. Their parents did not want to move into a nursing home, but Zack and Linda underwent difficulty in locating reliable senior home assistance. The other siblings lived out of state, and the primary caregiver role landed with them. They helped when Linda’s father was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer, and wanted to continue living at home.  After his passing, Linda’s mother’s health deteriorated, coupled with progressive dementia, and Linda’s mother eventually transferred to independent living and then to a nursing home where her health continued to decline until her passing at 90 years of age. Zack’s father was diagnosed with cancer in his late 80’s, and wanted to stay in the comfort of his home with his wife. Zack’s mother, as the primary caregiver, was under great stress and suffered a heart attack during this time caring for his Dad. We can relate to what you are experiencing and we are here to support your family.

This ongoing experience for 10 years, ultimately led Zack and Linda to create a licensed, insured, and bonded senior caregiving company.  Approved In Home Care, provides personalized senior care for the elderly and those in need who wish to remain independent in their own homes. We also provide service to clients in nursing homes, rehab centers, and senior living facilities.

Their company is licensed by the State of Texas for in-home health services, and offers service in Dallas, Denton, Collin, Grayson and Rockwall counties. Most recently, they also work with area home health agencies to help seniors who are in similar situations to that which Zack and Linda experienced with their own parents.
