Aging at home and maintaining autonomy is often the top priority for older adults.
The option to have licensed caregivers provide services where you’re most comfortable can alleviate stressors for both the individual and family.
At Heavenly Care, our trained caregivers provide home care for seniors who do not want to enter assisted living facilities or other skilled nursing homes, and prefer to remain independent as long as possible.
At Heavenly Care, we hold our caregivers to the highest possible standards and ensure that each caregiver meets our stringent standards of compassionate care and professionalism along with their licensure where required.
Working With An Experienced Caregiver: The Heavenly Difference
A licensed caregiver is someone who has obtained the necessary licensing or certification required by the state or local regulatory bodies to provide care to individuals in a professional setting. The specific requirements for licensure may vary depending on the location and the type of care being provided.
Licensed caregivers typically undergo formal training, complete educational programs, and pass examinations to demonstrate their competency in providing care.
Examples of licensed care providers include:
- Licensed Vocational Nurses (LVNs)
- Licensed Practical Nurses or LPNs)
- Registered Nurses (RNs)
- Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs)

Below are answers to some of our most common questions regarding licensed caregivers in TX.
Do Caregivers Need A License In Texas?

Each of the care providers at Heavenly Care is qualified, experienced, and trained in-house so that you can ensure your loved one is getting the best care possible.
What Is The Difference Between A Licensed Caregiver And An Unlicensed Caregiver?
The difference between A Licensed Caregiver and and Unlicensed Caregiver is primarily in their qualifications and Authorized Scope of Services. Licensed Caregivers could be CNAs, RNs, LVNs, EMTs, and more. They are qualified to provide specific services for needs you may have.
Unlicensed professional caregivers still have significant experience providing personal care or in-home care assistance, but may not have a specific license. Heavenly Care employs both licensed and unlicensed caregivers, providing them all with training, a dedicated mentor, and over 30 years of experience in caregiving from the owners.
The choice on what type of care is the best fit for you depends on the specific care needs of the individual.
