Bandera County Helping Hand is hosting an Information Gathering at our location on Wednesday, July 25 at 10 am. There will be three professionals who will answer your questions on Home Health Care, Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation, and Medicaid for Long Term Care.
There is no charge. The public is invited and there will be light refreshments. For more information, contact Director Jesse Parks at Helping Hand.
