Family Involvement at The Homestead of Sherman

You become as much a part of our family as your loved one. We believe that family members should be actively involved in planning your medical care and treatment. We encourage you and your family to participate in the development of your care plan through regular resident conferences. We also schedule follow-up conferences to keep family members informed of your progress.

We understand that caring for an adult or senior family member with a serious illness, injury or debilitating medical condition can place a tremendous strain on family members. To help families manage, we offer a range of social and counseling services. These services help people cope with the financial and emotional issues that can arise when a loved one needs extended care that cannot be provided at home.
