The Hospice Care Team
It takes many different skills to meet the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of hospice patients and those who love and care for them. The Community Healthcare of Texas hospice care program offers you the full resources of our entire team.
At Community Healthcare of Texas, we believe in a patient-centered approach to care, where the patient and their loved ones direct their care with a focus on their particular needs and wishes. Members of your care team will meet regularly to discuss your needs, share ideas and make plans that you will review.
