Services We Offer

Medical and Emotional Support

We understand that managing physical pain is a crucial aspect of hospice care. Our experienced hospice nurses administer prescriptions for pain relief and address medical needs promptly. Emotional well-being is equally important, and we offer comprehensive support to create a serene environment for our patients.

Family-Focused Care

Our services extend beyond the patient. We provide respite care, chaplain services, and bereavement counseling available around the clock, including holidays. This allows families to focus on creating precious moments with their loved ones, knowing that comprehensive support is just a call away.

Initiating Hospice Care

Choosing hospice care is a significant decision that comes with many questions and considerations. At AmeriPrime Hospice, we understand the importance of this decision and offer a Planning Your Life’s Journey Toolkit to help guide you through the process. This toolkit, coupled with our frequently asked questions section on our website, aims to shed light on the compassionate and supportive nature of hospice care, providing you with the information you need to make an informed choice.

To qualify for our services, a physician must certify that the patient is eligible and has a prognosis of 6 months or less. We then work closely with the patient, their family, and their physician to create a personalized care plan that reflects the patient’s wishes and values.

Testimonials and Stories

What are four types of care provided by hospice?

At AmeriPrime Hospice, we tailor our services to meet the individual needs of our patients and their families. Four main types of care we offer include medical and emotional support, family-focused care, respite care, and chaplain services. Each is designed to not only address the physical symptoms of our patients but also provide emotional and spiritual support. For example, our medical and emotional support aims to control pain and symptoms, while ensuring the patient feels understood and at peace. Our family-focused care, including bereavement counseling, helps families navigate through their emotional journeys during and after their loved one’s end-of-life phase.

How much does it cost to put someone in a hospice?

The cost of hospice care can vary depending on the specific services needed, but at AmeriPrime Hospice, we believe that no one should be prevented from receiving quality end-of-life care due to financial concerns. For patients covered by Medicare or Medicaid, there are no out-of-pocket expenses for hospice services provided by us. We work diligently to ensure that financial issues do not hinder anyone from accessing the compassionate care they deserve. For those who are uninsured or have other forms of insurance, we would discuss coverage options and strive to find a solution that makes our services accessible.

How long do patients last in hospice?

The duration of hospice care can significantly vary from one patient to another, primarily because it’s based on each individual’s unique health condition and needs. Hospice care is intended for patients who have been diagnosed with a life-limiting illness and have a prognosis of 6 months or less if the disease follows its typical course. However, it’s not uncommon for patients to be in hospice care beyond six months, as eligibility is based on health status rather than a strict timeline. Our team continually assesses each patient to ensure they still meet the criteria for hospice care.

Is hospice free in Texas?

In Texas, as is the case with AmeriPrime Hospice, hospice care can be provided with no out-of-pocket expense to the patient or their family if they are covered by Medicare, Medicaid, or most private insurances. This is because these services are deemed essential and covered under the respective plans’ benefits. Our goal is to ensure that anyone eligible for hospice care can receive our support without worrying about financial burdens, allowing them to focus on quality time with their loved ones during this critical period.

How does one begin the process of receiving hospice care?

Initiating hospice care starts with a conversation — either with your physician, a loved one, or directly with our team at AmeriPrime Hospice. The first step involves obtaining a physician’s certification that the individual meets the necessary medical eligibility requirements for hospice care, typically a prognosis of 6 months or less. From there, we work closely with you, your family, and your physician to create a personalized care plan that reflects your wishes and values. We understand that this is a significant decision, and our team is here to provide guidance, support, and information every step of the way.
