Hospice care in Temple and Killeen since 2013

Our hospice care team in Temple focuses on your safety and quality of life to better help guide every step of our care. We start by listening. Understanding your needs and values enables us to offer a personal level of support.

Additionally, our Medicare-approved hospice includes practical and emotional support for everyone affected by a serious illness.

What Is Hospice Care?

Hospice care is a type of healthcare that aims to reduce suffering and promote comfort at the end of an individual’s life. Pain and any other symptoms are managed around the clock, and the hospice team focuses greatly on spiritual and emotional health as well.

The foundations of hospice include nursing care with an emphasis on managing symptoms, practical assistance, and emotional support. While caring for a loved one at home can be challenging, our goal is to provide timely services to help your family make the most of your time together.

Hospice care provides:

  • Home medical equipment and personal supplies
  • Around-the-clock access to care
  • Management of complex pain and other symptoms
  • Hospice aide for personal care and light homemaking
  • Medical social services
  • Spiritual care and support
  • Physical, occupational, dietary, and speech therapies
  • Support from volunteers
  • Short-term inpatient respite care (relief) for family caregivers
  • Ongoing Grief counseling for the patient, family, and friends
