The new year will be a little brighter in the homes of a few lucky East Texans.
Today winners of At Home HealthCare's "Help or the Holidays" were announced. Family and friends wrote to the company explaining why their loved one needed a little extra help taking care of a patient at home.
In all 6 families were chosen, 3 were represented at Tuesday's event. The families will receive 40 hours of free care from nurses and staff members.
"The reason for being in health care is to feel at the end of the day you've made a difference," said At Home Healthcare CEO Doug Mehling. "I'm now in my 35th year of health care administrator and I still enjoy it, these are the reasons why."
In addition to providing extra medical care the nurses and staff members will help with every day chores like cleaning, running errands and even doing some laundry.
