Your Quality of Life. Those words mean many things to people and at Home Hospice, they are our mission. As a person’s health changes with a chronic or advanced illness, so do goals and plans. Unfortunately many people say, “We’re not ready yet,” when palliative care or hospice services are suggested and then they wait too long before seeking help and support to meet their vision of quality of life.
Many believe that palliative care and hospice services mean giving up hope. In reality, our team’s commitment to offering the highest level of pain and symptom management, as well as emotional and spiritual care gives hope that you can have the best possible quality of life. At Home Hospice we believe in supporting the patient, the family, and caregivers as part of our service. We understand the complexities and stress of life in dealing with chronic and advanced illness. Our interdisciplinary team of physicians, nurses, aides, social workers, spiritual counselors, bereavement counselors, and volunteers work directly with you in the home, facility, or hospital.
Home Hospice patient Flo Vance shared, “I did not realize all that hospice was. My friends encouraged me to try Home Hospice and finally I did. I didn’t realize there were so many people who had just me to think about. It is so much more than caring for the body. Having care from the Home Hospice team has meant so much to me. I wish I had done this sooner.”
When you ask for Home Hospice, ensure it is Home Hospice of Grayson, Cooke and Fannin Counties. There are other hospice agencies that say they are home hospice but they are not the Home Hospice team that has served our communities for over 34 years as the only non-profit hospice. With 24/7 on-call services staffed with local nurses here to serve you and your family, what sets us apart is our ability to be there when you need us.
