Tribute to the Fascinating Life and Contributions of Elmo Fischer
Posted: August 14, 2014

Two Saturdays ago, I was privileged to attend a memorial service for Elmo Fischer at the EdenHill Chapel in New Braunfels. It indeed was a celebration of a wonderful life full of adventure and accomplishments and, most of all, love of family and friends.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the history of long-term care in Texas and nationally, you need to know that Elmo Fischer was one of our founding fathers. He, along with some other heroes of the field, from numerous faith based homes around Texas, got together and saw not only a need for organizations to get together and share information, but also the need for some regulation of nursing homes because care was not at all consistent amongst long-term care facilities around the state. So, they not only founded the Texas Association of Homes for the Aging (TAHA) back in 1959, but in the 1960s influenced the legislature to create some standards.
