Hospice Reviews for Houston Hospice

July 29, 2011

By candyc1

I am a friend or relative of a resident

My sister was at home hospice for 31 days before she passed with lung cancer. Our hospice nurse Kay was the most caring and compassinate person. She really kept us informed and we knew that she really cared about the comfort of my sister!!! When my sister did pass Kay bent down and kissed her forehead and told her goodbye and we just thought that was the sweetest thing ever. She was the best nurse we could of ever asked for. Thank you Kay!!!!

Local Houston Hospice teams provide care in patients' homes, in assisted living facilities, and skilled nursing homes throughout ten counties. Teams include doctors, nurses, hospice aides, social workers, chaplains, bereavement counselors, and trained volunteers.

The care team helps manage pain and symptoms, monitor the patient's condition, maintain hygiene, anticipate needs, assist with medical/insurance forms, listen with compassion, and give caregivers rest. This support helps caregivers have more energy and quality time with their loved one. Houston Hospice is an in-network provider for most insurance companies and is licensed by Medicare and Medicaid.

Houston Hospice is a nonprofit 501 (c) 3 organization that is community-supported. Our mission is to provide compassionate physical, social and spiritual support to individuals with a life-limiting diagnosis, and their loved ones, irrespective of their ethnicity or beliefs.

We believe no one should live in pain or in fear of being alone. Houston Hospice utilizes a team-oriented approach to medical care, pain management, and emotional and spiritual support tailored to each unique patient.
