My mother was a fiercely independent woman, a difficult case with mental health issues, in addition to the challenges she faced with aging. When it became obvious she could no longer live alone, she was not medicating, was no longer cooking, cleaning or doing laundry. Her personal hygiene and living conditions were deplorable, completely out of control. Complicating matters was the fact that I live 4,000 miles away and mom had no other family in San Antonio. Ruth at Boarding with Tender Care was a God send, accepting my mom despite these challenges. She was the only place I could find that was willing to medicate my mother covertly, which resulted in mom eventually medicating willingly. Every single person who visited my mom, without exception, commented about how clean the facility was and how much better mom looked getting regular healthy meals. I also had a third-party consultant who'd referred me to the facility and did monthly visits, providing reports during her stay there, giving nothing but high praise for the care and treatment mom was getting. Though mom only stayed with Ruth four months, the subsequent last months of her life were far better than she'd had in many years. I am eternally grateful for Ruth's impact on my mother's life.

    My mother and my father spent a very long time with Ruth both in Boerne and San Antonio. Both home are beautiful places particularly the Boerne home. Everything is beautifully decorated and well kept. The food is delicious. We were invited to have a Valentine dinner there. Everything was just wonderful. Ruth Cardenas is a devoted loving caregiver as is her staff. We have maintained a personal relationship with Ruth and her family even though my parents have both passed. Tender Care wss initially recommended yo me by my husband's Secretary. Her father had been living at Tender scare after many bad experiences at other places. She said Ruth's home was a Godsend. She was exactly right. I never worried about my parents for a minute when they were in Ruth's care. I am thankful for the kind loving care they received from Ruth, a Godly Christian woman. I can't recommend Tender Care highly enough. It is just plain wonderful.

    My mother lived at both Tender Care in Boerne and at the San Antonio location the last 3 years of her life. Ruth Cardenas is a wonderful, loving lady who truly cares about her residents. I always was very impressed with the cleanliness of both of these beautiful homes. The food was very good! We also were invited to eat there on occasion. Ruth sometimes would send me photos of my mother participating in activities such as bingo & Bible study. I always knew my mother was in good hands under the supervision of Ruth. I give her and her facility 5 stars!

    I had Ruth taking care of my father inlaw at her Boerne location and when I walked into her facility I was so impressed at how clean it was. She had her staff cooking dinner and it smelled so delicious. She invited my husband and me to stay and eat with my father inlaw but before we ate she said that we always hold hands and pray, I new then we had finally found the place he would be cared for properly.
    I can give Ruth this great review after all the nursing homes that we had been to and including the hospitals, for some reasons when they are getting older the medical staff seem not to respect them and treat them with dignity.
    I could go on and on about the places that I had been to before Ruth but I won't.

    I am so grateful for Boarding With Tender Care's work caring for my mother in the last year of her life. Mom was a strong personality, and she needed understanding caregivers who really did reach out to family members and help patients cope with changed and difficult circumstances. I think we all know that these life transitions can be difficult and disturbing for everyone, but I believe Ruth Cardenas and her staff did everything possible to make the transitions easier and more tolerable, and I'm so grateful for their work. One of the nicest things I heard from Ruth was when she characterized her work as like "caring for angels." It is impossible to overstate how comforting it was to hear those words.

    I don't know where this writer came up with a "One-star" rating. I can confidently say that TenderCare Inc is worth a rating of "Five-stars." My mother has been with Ruth Cardenas and her staff since September 2015. They have taken care of her, and she seems very happy to be there. I visited two other assisted-living homes, and I decided to go with TenderCare because I could tell that Ruth is sincere and a very caring individual. She enjoys helping others. The facility is very neat and clean, and I've noticed that others at the facility look happy. My mother has dementia, and I know that she is in good hands with Ruth and her staff. Ruth has sent me many videos of my mother enjoying the activities that are presented during the year (Christmas, birthdays, and Easter). A couple of months ago, Ruth called me to let me know that mom had a cough. She suggested that I take her to see her doctor to check on that cough. Of course, it turned out to be an allergy and not the beginning of pneumonia. So yes, she watches out for everyone, and I will continue to keep my mother there at TenderCare Inc. Michael Childress.

    I hope this helps, and I saw the bad review. Some people just enjoy doing bad reviews. So don't worry, you'll be fine.

    We had my father at Tender Care for the last several months of his life. The facility is a warm and caring environment for the residents. During that time, my father was treated with care and dignity and I would definitely recommend this center to any family who needs loving care for their family member.

    My name is Fred Wernette and I am the only son of Norma Wernette. She lost her husband in 1945 and never remarried. I moved to Houston with my wife, Barbara Wernette, where we were blessed with three children.

    My mother, Norma Wernette, lived by herself in San Antonio and after numerous problems with her ability to take care of herself I located a home that seemed at the time to be a place that would take proper care of her. That choice proved to be entirely wrong. I searched to find a more caring and safe place for my mom. That is when I became acquainted with Ruth Cardenas and her home for the elderly, Tender Care, Inc.
    That choice proved to be the best place for my mom to live out the rest of her life in a clean, caring, and safe environment. The staff was always present to assist my mother in whatever she needed. The Christian attitude of the home was calming to my mother and to me. In my opinion, Tender Care, Inc. increased my mother’s life expectancy.
    I would recommend Tender Care, Inc. to anyone who has a loved one in need of assistance.
    Sincerely,
    Fred E. Wernette

    I placed my wife at Tender Care and it was the best decision I ever made. The care was top notch and my wife never wanted for anything. The facility was always clean and I did eat the food food and it was fine. I highly recommend this facility.

    My mom has been living in this home for the last 16 months. The manager/owner keeps the home very clean, nicely furnished and it has a very homey feel to it. Ruth, is usually right on top of requests or issues that come up and tries to resolve problems in a timely manner. I know for a fact that residents that live there can eat when they are hungry and do not have to wait for an appointed time. She tries to do some other kind of activities besides TV each week for them. Playing games, baking and memory type games. I believe that she loves her job and she cares about the residents. So to sum this up, this is one of the best small care homes in the San Antonio area and my mother has been other places but this one is better and Tender Care is actually trying to tick all the care boxes everyday and do what each of every resident needs done. The staff are great and the food delicious. PS note: She even had a Christmas program for residents and family this last year and there is plenty of room in the main living rooms. I can not say enough about how nice this place is for my wonderful mother. Thank you Ruth.

    This is not the place to have your loved ones spend the last part of their life. The food is terrible and staffing is inadequate. The Manager of the facility is a dental hygienist. The RN on staff is her daughter and is only used as needed. There are no activities other that television.


    Response: Can you tell me why we shouldn't put our loved one there. Is there something we should know about this facility
