Serving the San Antonio, Texas area for the past 2 years, and Seatle, Wa for 22 years, Helping Hands Care home is owned and operated by Stefania Sandu, CNA with over 24 years’ experience in Geriatric Care and Management. Her calling is to maintain the quality of life of our aging senior residents, to love, to serve, to influence, to bless, and to make a difference in their lives.

Stefania and her team believe in creating a loving environment that maximizes each resident’s potential. We don’t want our residents to feel at home, but to be at home, and to live the end of their lives well. Quality of life is not only at the Garden Club at 3 PM, but also ongoing throughout the day in our care, our attitude, our engagement, and through the structured and non-structured activities we put forth.


Our team focuses on what the rest of the brain can do. They fulfill and enrich our residents’ lives by promoting a positive sense of well-being – “friendship is the best medicine”. We want them safe, comfortable and accepted, where their strengths are known, their contributions are recognized, and their identity and concept of self and worth are reinforced.
