What is Hospice Care?
Hospice care provides palliative care to individuals diagnosed with a life-limiting illness as well as supportive services to their loved ones. It is a continuum of care ranging from routine home care to inpatient care with emphasis on maintaining the patient at home in their most familiar, comfortable and least restrictive environment. At Star of Texas Hospice, we offer comprehensive care and support to our patients and their families each and every day. We’ll help your loved one to be as comfortable as possible and give your family and caregiver the resources and assistance they need to help care for them. Our mission is to provide comprehensive and compassionate care while respecting needs, beliefs and wishes.
