WHAT IS HOSPICE?

Hospice is a special approach to care which combines medical expertise and compassion for those suffering with a life limiting illness.

Hospice focuses on a quality of life. It's about providing comfort, easing pain, listening, or sharing a smile. Often referred to as "palliative", or comfort care, hospice affirms life and does not hasten the end of life.

Our professional team members focus on the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of patients and their loved ones, offering the care they choose in a variety of setting.

WHEN IS HOSPICE NEEDED?

When medical treatments cannot cure an illness, Cross Timbers Hospice may be needed. A patient may be eligible for the benefits of Cross Timbers Hospice services when he or she has a life-limiting illness with a prognosis of six months or less, as determined by your physician. When the goal of treatment has changed from curative or aggressive care, to comfort care Cross Timbers Hospice will be here for you.
