Quality Hospice Care in Houston and Katy Texas
Care Services from the Comfort of Home
Hospice care is offered when curative treatments are not an option or not wanted by the patient. Instead of aiming to cure someone, hospice keeps the patient as comfortable as possible. Services include providing patients with medical equipment, medication, healthcare supplies, and other resources. Our staff provides holistic care, manages the patient’s symptoms, and helps prevent crises.
We offer multiple types of hospice care based on the patient’s specific needs, including routine and continuous in-home hospice plus general inpatient hospice care. Routine care hospice includes scheduled and on-call visits to the patient’s home up to seven days per week. The patient’s home is wherever the patient lives, whether that is a private residence, nursing home, assisted living facility, or other residential facility. Continuous care includes short-term care provided at home for up to 24 hours per day. It is offered when symptoms aren’t being effectively controlled through regular visits. General inpatient care allows hospice clients to spend time at a hospital or nursing facility when their symptoms can’t be managed at home. The goal of general inpatient care is to stabilize the patient’s condition so they can return to their home.
Our hospice services also include respite care, during which our team provides care at the patient’s home, inpatient unit, or nursing facility for up to five days. This allows you and your family to take a break from caregiving, attend events out of town, or simply rest.
Additionally, Bayou City Hospice offers palliative care, which aims to improve the patient’s quality of life. Palliative services include managing the patient’s symptoms, reducing their pain, easing the side effects of medication, and supporting their emotional, social, and spiritual needs. Our team can help ward off feelings of loneliness, educate the patient and their family about different types of hospice care, and inform everyone on different resources available.
