Gentle Embrace is a small, local business with Texas roots. We do more than just provide skilled nursing and personal care assistance to adults and seniors at home. We strive to improve the quality of life for our community with compassionate care.
Erika is a Registered Nurse who cared for cancer patients at the hospital bedside, while Lefteri was a healthcare portfolio manager for a business development company. Erika found that she could provide more compassionate care to clients and their families in their own homes, and Lefteri wanted to provide the structure and creativity necessary to support our staff in providing premium care.
To deliver the highest quality of home health care to our community while providing compassion and respect for the inherent dignity, worth, and uniqueness of each client.
To create a new chapter in home health — prioritizing wellness and prevention — and increase independence and longevity in adults and seniors.
Proud to serve the Greater Houston Area and Surrounding Communities!
