Belinda May founded Homecare Network in 1999 after recognizing a critical need in the southern sector of Dallas for improved in-home healthcare. She started her business by herself with one patient, and today she and her growing team of 130 professionals serve more than 600 economically challenged, home-bound patients in 33 counties. Home Care Network is different because it accepts patients most other agencies won’t due to lack of insurance and funds or their critical condition.

“It seems as if more hospitals and medical centers are moving north to serve a different demographic, and this is directly impacting so many patients who are in need of care,” May says. “We don’t shy away from accepting critically and chronically ill patients who live in diminished home settings. We are proud to make a difference in our community and we would love to have the support and partner with more hospitals and other companies in south Dallas to bring resources to people in  need.”

As a nurse, May raises awareness about the benefits of healing at home, and she proudly lobbies to recruit more skilled nurses and physicians to south Dallas communities. Many of her team members are furthering their education, just as May did, by becoming nurses and pursuing master’s degrees.

“Everyone at Home Care Network is an example about how it is never too late to pursue your passion,” May says. “We can’t get tired of doing what is right. The cost of healthcare premiums and medications is going up, and so many of our patients are forced to choose between food and medication. We work every day with physicians and pharmacies to help. So much of the work we do goes unnoticed, but it’s the most important work—meeting people where they are and offering the help they need most.”
