When medical care cannot offer a cure, hospice provides expert care, comfort and support. Houston Hospice provides a holistic approach, with the goal of ensuring quality end of life care. This specialized medicine addresses all symptoms of a disease, with special emphasis on controlling discomfort and pain. Hospice also provides emotional, spiritual and social support to the patient and family.
Hospice can be provided in a variety of settings. Most patients are able to remain in their own home with hospice care while others receive hospice in a nursing home or assisted living facility.
The Houston Hospice Team is comprised of:
- Hospice Physicians
