About Gentle Partners in Hospice in San Antonio, Texas

What is hospice care? Hospice focuses on caring, not curing and in most cases care is provided in the patient's home. Hospice care also is provided in freestanding hospice centers, hospitals, and nursing homes and other long-term care facilities. Hospice services are available to patients of any age, religion, race, or illness. Hospice care is covered under Medicare, Medicaid, most private insurance plans, HMOs, and other managed care organizations.

How does hospice care work? Typically, a family member serves as the primary caregiver and, when appropriate, helps make decisions for the terminally ill individual. Members of the hospice staff make regular visits to assess the patient and provide additional care or other services. Hospice staff is on-call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The hospice team develops a care plan that meets each patient's individual needs for pain management and symptom control.

The team usually consists of: The patient' s personal physician; Hospice physician (or medical director); Nurses; Home health aides; Social workers; Clergy or other counselors Trained volunteers; and Speech, physical, and occupational therapists, if needed.
