Care is 100% covered by Medicare, Medicaid for 6 months or longer as needed. The earlier patients and families meet their care team the better, so they can be comfortable with the team members and benefit from their care.

"My Dad was in the care of the staff at Houston Hospice and the staff was awesome. It is a peaceful place and those that work there have a special calling. Thank you to all the staff for all you did for him, my Mother and their children." K.T.
"Very peaceful place with a caring staff. This morning we lost our loved one, the nurse came in and was very caring and professional.They have been with us right up to the end and I can't imagine how we would have dealt with this if we had been somewhere else. Thank you to all of the staff... For all that you do!" D.A.
"These are extraordinary people--the Red Team from Houston Hospice offered loving care to my father who just passed hours ago from cancer. Every single person we encountered (on the phone or in our home) projected an air of calm professionalism and gentle handling of our situation. We were never without help, or a line to help, and their advocacy for my father's comfort was genuine and rare. The third party weekend critical care team of Ellen and Bridget could not have been more wonderful, with Ellen in particular choosing to extend to a double 24hr shift so my family would have consistency of care. Chaplain Dan Miller was also quite a comfort to my family-- Should you have need of hospice service in the Houston area, I cannot recommend more strongly utilizing the experience and expertise of these remarkable individuals."
