- Care coordinated with your doctor
- Home medical equipment, medications and medical supplies
- Nurse aides to help with the tasks of daily living
- Respite care (relief for family caregivers)
- We Honor Veterans certification
- Spiritual support
- Physical, occupational and other therapy services
Whether you live in Austin, Bastrop, San Marcos or the eastern half of the Hill Country, our team will travel to where you live, including nursing facilities, hospitals or your personal home. We also have a location in Round Rock, covering the area north of Austin.
Did you know that hospice is fully covered by Medicare? That’s right, you can rest assured that nursing services, medications, supplies and equipment are covered when there is a diagnosis requiring hospice care.
We understand that family caregivers are often balancing home and family responsibilities. Our goal is to help you understand your options for at-home health and ensure care transitions are as easy as possible.
Palliative care is an extra layer of relief from the symptoms, pain and stress of a serious illness. It focuses on improving quality of life for patients and their families. Care includes help navigating the medical system to ensure care aligns with your goals and values.
Palliative care does not signal that someone is giving up hope for recovery. Support can begin at any stage of an illness, with people moving in and out of care as needed. Talk to your doctor about a referral.
Each day, hospice volunteers touch the lives of our patients and their families. Whether reading to a patient, preparing a meal for a family or cleaning up around the house, each gesture makes a meaningful impact on those we serve.
Whether you volunteer behind the scenes at the office or one-on-one with families, you are a valuable member of our hospice team. All volunteers receive free training at a local office.
