Meet The Owner Of Our Home Health Care Office
Terri Robbins is the president and owner of Assisting Hands® Home
Care Houston, an home health care agency in Humble, Texas that serves north Houston, Kingwood, Spring, Crosby, Huffman, New Caney, Porter and Splendora.
Her desire for home health care stems from a dream she and her mother, Claire Gulsby, had of owning and operating a hospice business. Before they could launch the business, her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer.
A stay-at-home mom at the time, Robbins became the primary caregiver for her mother. Every day after she dropped off her children at school, she headed to her parent’s home. She bathed and dressed her mom, prepared meals, tidied up the house in between housekeeper visits. When she left to pick up her children from school, her mom was left in the care of her dad, sister-in-law and other family members. This went on for three years.
In 1998, Gulsby lost her battle against breast cancer. Divorced, with her children in college, Robbins decided to pursue her entrepreneurial dream.
Looking to launch her own business — she assumed in food — a franchise broker presented Assisting Hands Home Care to her after learning the story of how Terri took care of her mom and their desire to own a hospice business.
Robbins took the broker’s advice, and began her due diligence.® Home Care family as a franchise owner and regional developer in Houston, Texas. In May 2008, she opened her business in Humble to serve north Houston seniors and other residents needing non-medical home health care services.
Assisting Hands® Houston is one of 80 franchise locations across the United States. Assisting Hands offers a comprehensive menu of services that includes non-medical companionship and personal care services, skilled nursing, and total care management that fill the gap between living at home with dignity, and the need for institutionalized medical care.
