Our Story

Our Story

Both of us were blessed in the sense of being raised in families that taught us the importance of hard work, honesty and kindness.  We were taught to always give our best and our purpose “Seek to Serve” is woven into everything we do.

Together, we have achieved local, statewide and national recognition for our work including:

  • Quality Scores (National Best)
  • Resident & Family Satisfaction (National Best)
  • Design & Programming (National awards and recognition)
  • Hiring Practices (Local recognition)

And our work has been featured on NBC Nightly News, CNN, US News & World Report and multiple DFW media outlets.

In spite of our success, we knew that senior care could be better!  In the late 90’s, Teresa, a longtime member of SAGE Federation and former board member presented to Godwin her concept for a boutique, concierge home model in a neighborhood community that was specifically designed for assisted living and memory care.

We knew that senior care could be better, which is why Teresa’s House was born — created with a sketch and a dream, wrapped in a passion for excellence. We asked a simple question: What would our parents want?  What would we want? The answer was simple: A place where residents can just be themselves in a home environment living life to the fullest!

We know through our own experience in our own families, that choosing the right place for a loved one is a deeply personal decision. And one which has to be right the first time. Our stunning neighborhood of custom homes was created specifically to provide individualized care and unparalleled resident choice offerings. That allows our team to truly get to know each resident and his or her family. In addition, we’re able to plan their specific care needs and give residents a renewed sense of purpose every day.

Ultimately, quality and peace of mind is what you’re getting at Teresa’s House.


Our Mission Is Simple: 

To provide the finest senior care in a warm, supportive, home setting where meaningful relationships are formed and purpose-filled lives are lived.

 

We look forward to speaking with you and invite you to visit and experience the difference at Teresa’s House.
