Caring from the Heart

Hospice is comfort care for patients with advanced illness, irrespective of their age, culture, beliefs, or cause of illness. Patients can come, leave, or stop their hospice status at any time for any reason as long as they meet hospice eligibility guidelines. Hospice is a service that comes to the patient where they live, home, assisted living, or independent living.

About Hospice Eligibility

Most hospice patients do not have any out-of-pocket expenses. Medicare Part A covers up to 100% of hospice care costs related to a hospice-eligible patient’s illness with no deductible or copayment. Private or employer-provided health coverage can vary. Check with your insurance provider for details about hospice eligibility, coverage, and out-of-pocket expenses. Medicaid provides hospice coverage as outlined by the State of Texas.

Hospice Medicines

Hospice doctors give just enough medicine to manage symptoms and ease the pain. Patients can keep taking some medicines while on hospice. The patients get medicines that bring comfort and improve their quality of life.

Primary Caregivers

Family or friends are the primary caregivers, supported and trained by an expert team that makes regular, scheduled visits. The hospice team works together with the facility staff for patients living in assisted living communities and nursing homes.

Home Medical Equipment

Hospice provides home medical equipment and supplies related to the cause of the illness. This includes:

  • Shower chairs
  • Oxygen tanks
  • Hospital beds
  • Toileting supplies
  • And more

After a patient passes, hospice addresses emotional and spiritual pain suffered by loved ones for more than a year.

Palliative Care

Palliative care focuses on relieving the symptoms and stress of serious illness. It does not signal that a person is giving up hope for recovery. Studies show that those receiving palliative care experience fewer hospitalizations, better pain management, and improved quality of life. Care includes:

  • Managing pain and complex symptoms to your desired level
  • Medical support for shortness of breath
  • Help with fatigue and sleep problems
  • Managing nausea, loss of appetite, and other symptoms
  • Reducing anxiety and depression
  • Spiritual care and medical social services
  • Planning healthcare goals and priorities
