Often, patients and their families are referred to hospice by their Southeast Texas senior care physician or other medical professional (nursing home, hospital discharge planner, etc.).

In other cases, Southeast Texas senior citizens and their family members contact the Southeast Texas hospice provider directly to determine whether this service meets their current physical, emotional, and spiritual needs.

If after learning more about hospice, you believe that you or your loved one may be eligible for SETX hospice care, here are the steps you can take to elect the hospice benefit:Hospice Care Village Mills Texas

  • Call Best Hospice Care of Texas: (409) 356-9271
  • A hospice care representative will explain the services offered, ask some health related questions to begin the assessment of eligibility for Southeast Texas hospice care, and answer any initial questions you may have.
  • If the patient lives within the Best Hospice Care of Texas service area (Jefferson, Hardin, Tyler County and the surrounding area) and appears to be eligible for hospice, an appointment will be scheduled with a member of the hospice care team to visit for a more thorough eligibility review.
  • If this in-person interview continues to indicate SETX Hospice eligibility, the hospice agency representative will answer any of your questions and walk the patient step-by-step through the process of electing the Hospice benefit. Your hospice representative will also coordinate the Hospice certification process with your physician, if necessary.
  • A registered nurse experienced in providing hospice care for Golden Triangle senior citizens will then visit with the patient to begin developing an individualized plan of care in conjunction with the Southeast Texas senior, their family, and the entire interdisciplinary hospice care team.
  • Your Southeast Texas hospice care nurse will also coordinate care with the patient’s own physician, as appropriate.
