We take on the daily anxieties and responsibilities of dementia care so that family members and friends can enjoy time with their loved one as they choose. The Earle W. Crawford House of Hope, specializing in Alzheimer’s and dementia care, is a home for seniors where they can live their lives in comfort, security and dignity.
Dementia residents have needs which are unique to their journey and pose challenges to non-specialized facilities. The House of Hope is designed to serve the needs that arise from the progressive nature of this journey.
Each architecturally designed suite is comprised of fifteen private rooms and a central nurse’s station. Offering a warm, home-like environment, this beautiful facility provides each resident with their own private bathroom, shower and view of landscaped courtyards. The House of Hope campus also boasts a beauty salon for residents, private dining room for family get-togethers, community room for larger gatherings and guest rooms for visiting family members to enjoy.

Quality of Life
House of Hope residents participate in specialized activities designed to engage and stimulate. The Activities Department consists of a Certified Activity Director and three activity assistants. Together, the activity team plans and implements individual and group activities to enhance daily living for residents. Weekly chapel services, pet therapy, monthly birthday celebrations and bus rides are basic components of our activity calendar.
Proper nutrition is a priority at the House of Hope. The dietary department strives to provide nutritionally appropriate meals and snacks that meet the varying dietary needs of each resident. The department director is a Certified Dietary Manager.
Professional nurses and other staff members attend to each resident’s activities of daily living, including medication administration, on a twenty-four hour basis. The House of Hope has one of the highest staff-to-resident ratios in the region.
The House of Hope is licensed as a nursing facility by the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services. Azalea, Bluebonnet and Crepe Myrtle suites are duly certified for Alzheimer’s and related dementia disorders.
The House of Hope works closely with the Alzheimer’s Association, the Area Agency on Aging and the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services. This helps to ensure that residents benefit from the most current research and practices.
Family members are an integral part of the care planning process. This process helps to keep family members or responsible parties informed of their loved ones condition.
For those family members who live in the area, we offer monthly support groups where individuals can discuss their challenges and share concerns in an encouraging environment. Meeting programs vary and may include open discussion, viewing a video, guest speaker presentations and more. Find out about our Support Groups.
