Full array of home and community-based services
Our Texas roots in the community go back to 1978 with the opening of the Lancaster Residential Center, an intermediate care facility for individuals with developmental disabilities (ICF/ID). In the late 80’s and 90’s, seven additional ICF/ID homes were opened in Dallas County. Since then, Caregiver has grown to locations all over Texas, including Grandbury, Sugarland, Lufkin, Amarillo, San Angelo and Abeline.
