Understanding Hospice Care

Here at Horizons Hospice, our team of hospice professionals provide care and support for our patients with life-limiting illnesses.If you or a loved one are considering hospice care, here are a few important facts to keep in mind:

  • Hospice care focuses on caring, not curing.
  • Our hospice staff is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  We have an on-call nurse available to answer calls after hours.  
  • Our hospice service can be provided in the comfort of your own home, in an assisted living facility, or a skilled nursing facility.
  • Choosing Horizons Hospice as your hospice care provider in Houston does not mean you have to change physicians. As a hospice patient, you may choose to keep your primary physician.
  • Our hospice services go beyond medical. In addition to required hospice medical benefits, we also provide spiritual and emotional support to both the patient & the patient’s family.
  • Our hospice team offers grief and bereavement services to family members to help them adjust to the loss of their loved ones.
