Hospice care is a philosophy of care that accepts dying as a natural part of life. When death is inevitable, hospice seeks neither to hasten nor postpone it but to provide the resources to insure, as best they can, that the final life experience is supported by knowledgeable professionals.

Southeast Texas hospice agencies like Best Hospice Care of Texas provide care and comfort to patients diagnosed with a terminal illness that has been certified by a physician.


Hospice and palliative (relieving pain) care is provided through a team-oriented approach to medical care, pain management, and emotional and spiritual support.

Hospice focuses on caring, not curing. In most cases; care is provided in the patient’s home.
