Changing the Face of Hospice Care in North Texas
The demand for hospice services and palliative care has been increasing due to the growth of the elderly population in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Local Hospice care in Dallas-Fort Worth is evolving to meet high standards of care. Managing end of life care and symptoms is always a big challenge for family members.
Institutional care like inpatient hospice, hospice care in a nursing facility, and hospice care in an assisted living may give relief to the family members, but is often more depressing for the patient. In-patient hospice, which is commonly called hospice house, has a negative image associated with it because it has all patients waiting to die.
Hospice home care or Hospice care at patient’s home has been more popular among all settings of Hospice and palliative care. Due to new standards and modern palliative care, guidelines the dying process has become less painful and less stressful.
