Hospice Care Services

The hospice care services provided are tailored to our hospice patient's personal needs and wishes. At Wings Over Texas Hospice, our team takes the time to develop a personalized care plan that considers the input of both the patient and caregiver. We understand the importance of addressing the identified problems, needs, and goals, as well as incorporating the physician's orders and the patient's environment. This plan is regularly reviewed and updated to ensure that it continues to meet the changing needs of the patient.

Nursing Care

Our Wings Over Texas Hospice patients are each assigned a case manager nurse, who typically visits one to three times a week. Additionally, our hospice patients and their caregivers have access to an on-call nurse 24 hours a day.
