Texas - Hospice

Believe it or not, planning end-of-life care for a loved one can ease your distress in the long run. Taking the time to find out different care options and to discuss your loved one's wishes will all help to lessen your stress when you are able to spend time with your loved one in a situation that matches their wish.

Hospice

The most well-known option for end-of-life care is Hospice. Hospice focuses on pain and symptom relief, as well as the comfort of each patient nearing the end of life. Hospice staff members work to guarantee a positive, comfortable environment for the final stage of your loved one's life. Hospice care can be given in your loved one's home, in a nursing home, or in a hospice facility. At the core, hospice is a medical, spiritual, and psychological service that seeks to ensure a higher quality of life and well being during the final portion of one's life.
