Our Mission:

Help our patients reach their maximum potential and to ensure the brightest futures for the children and communities we serve.

Himmel Home Health uses a client-first approach and has earned an excellent reputation as an agency that provides exceptional therapy services to its patients. This standard continues with quality customer service and professional satisfaction for its therapists and administrative staff.

With that, it is with great pride that we announce that Himmel Home Health was selected as one of the Top Workplaces in San Antonio for the fifth year in a row!  Companies are nominated by its employees, surveyed, and then based on the feedback from the survey Himmel was selected out of over 1,300 nominations.  We are both humbled and honored by this award, and we thank and appreciate each of our employees for making Himmel such a great place to work.  Himmel functions as a unit with everyone putting forth their best efforts, and it’s wonderful to see the hard work pay off.



In an effort to ensure that Himmel therapists are trained in the newest therapeutdic techniques, we recently held an in-house certification course to train 27 of our speech and occupational therapists in the VitalStim technique for the treatment of swallowing disorders.

Congratulations to our newest VitalStim certified therapists!
