Hospice is a special way of caring for patients and families coping with life-limiting illness. Those needs can be met with the compassion and expertise of Harris Palliative Care & Hospice. Professionals and volunteers are available to help you and your family during this time.
If a diagnosis has been accepted and no further curative treatment is being sought, then hospice can offer spiritual, emotional and medical support.
How can hospice care help?
Our goal is to meet your needs:
Physical, emotional, social and spiritual. Because we have experience in helping others, we can ease physical discomfort, provide companionship, help you understand what to expect, find the right resources to fulfill the patient's wishes, and give needed support to family and friends. Hospice understands the changes and adjustments that a life-limiting illness presents to families and patients.
Many people with a variety of skills work together for the benefit of the patient and loved ones, and hospice uses a team approach to coordinate care. A feeling of harmony grows when patients and families share their feelings and participate in care.
