We support people to do the extraordinary everyday.

Cuidado Casero Home Health & Hospice has been providing high-quality, state of the art health services to individuals of all ages who are recovering, disabled, or terminally ill.

Our skilled and experienced team proudly serves patients, providing specialized, comforting in-home care and assistance throughout 6 communities in Texas, New Mexico, and Virginia.

Our proud history

Since 1995 Cuidado Casero is a trusted leader in the healthcare community and family-owned and operated.

Cuidado Casero opened its doors to the community in 1995 when Carmen Santiago, a Registered Nurse, identified the need for high-quality bilingual services for the elderly and disabled in the privacy of their homes.

The response was overwhelming and resulted in the growth of multiple agencies in three states, which now includes Home Health, Hospice, and Primary Home Care Services.

Currently, we have the pleasure of employing over 1300 healthcare professionals.

Our mission and vision

Cuidado Casero’s mission is to provide excellence in professional care, in Home Care and Hospice, to our clients and their families in the privacy of their homes.

We are committed to providing high-quality, multidisciplinary Home Health and Hospice Services by professionals who recognize the need for comprehensive assessments of health care needs from both the client and the professional’s point of view.

Our priority is to provide state-of-the-art and compassionate in-home care from highly trained bilingual medical professionals and aides. To make good on this promise, proper training is paramount; not only do we hire the most experienced personnel, but we provide them with in-depth disease-specific training so that they can deliver specialized care to our clients.

Cuidado Casero’s vision is to be recognized as a leader in Home Health and Hospice for our enduring dedication to provide both professional and compassionate care to the culturally diverse communities we serve.

Our Leadership Team

At Cuidado Casero, we are dedicated to providing the best care for our patients, that mission starts with the leadership team and throughout all our employees within the organization.
