Providing Thoughtful Hospice Home Care in Dallas, Texas
What is Palliative Care?
When curative treatment is no longer an option or a preference, patients may move into hospice care. This type of care is typically meant for people in their last six months of life. Patients may include people living with end-stage cancer or patients in the ending stage of other terminal illnesses, for example. Through hospice care, patients can receive palliative care services from the comfort of their own homes. Hospice includes medications, equipment like a hospital bed or wheelchair, healthcare supplies, and visits from the hospice care team. We provide quality care services to ensure your loved one is as comfortable as possible and is treated with dignity and respect at the end of life.
Our Hospice and Palliative Care Services
Our hospice care includes access to physicians, nursing care, home health aides, dietary counseling, spiritual counseling, and social services for a holistic approach to care. Care plans are customized to the patient’s specific needs and can be adjusted as needs change.
Our medical team is made up of professional care providers who can help manage your loved one’s physical pain and discomfort and other medical needs to improve their quality of life. Care services may include administering medication, dressing wounds, monitoring the condition, and more. Our professionals work hard to avoid the emergency room and keep patients in their homes.
Emotional and Social Support
End of Life Home Care Services from Star City Hospice
Routine home care is a popular hospice option where a member of our team provides medical and palliative care at the patient’s house for up to seven days per week. Visits can occur as needed or be scheduled ahead of time. We also offer a 24-hour call line and on-call staff, so someone is always available to support you even when we have left the house.
Continuous care includes medical and palliative care provided up to 24 hours per day and is a helpful option when routine visits are not enough. Our staff will be in the patient’s house continuously providing care to monitor the patient’s condition and take action as needed. We’ll also stay in contact with the patient’s physicians and case managers, so everyone is informed on the patient’s status.
Respite care is a service we offer to give family members and caregivers a break from daily caregiving so they can rest, attend events, or simply take some time to themselves.
We’re happy to discuss your loved one’s medical and palliative needs and help determine which of our hospice services are right for your family.
