Hospice and Palliative Care at Crown

FAITH-BASED COMFORT CARE

If your loved one has been diagnosed with a terminal illness with a prognosis of six months or less, it’s time to seriously consider hospice care. Our hospice services focus on physical comfort, emotional care, and spiritual support.

Here at Crown Hospice of Victoria, TX, we encourage our patients and their loved ones to begin hospice care as soon as possible so that there is a plan and support system in place for end of life care. Starting the process is not giving up on your loved one and it does not hasten their passing. Instead, hospice care will enhance their quality of life and give you more quality time and opportunities for special moments together.

Meet Your Care Team

HOSPICE LIFE

Upon admittance, your loved one will be assigned a care team who will be with them throughout their entire time at Crown. Every member of your care team is here to support you and your loved one, whether they choose to receive hospice care at home or at our facility. In addition to your care team, each hospice patient will have a custom care plan in place. From overseeing all of your medical and comfort needs to providing prayer and emotional support, our staff is here to serve you.

Registered Nurses

Here at Crown Hospice, our registered nurses (RNs) serve as your care team leaders and so much more. Our palliative care nursing plan dictates that, should you choose home hospice, our RNs will visit your loved one at least two times per week. Home hospice allows our patients to remain as comfortable as possible, while still receiving necessary medical attention.

QUALITY CARE AND EMOTIONAL SUPPORT

We have developed our hospice services to directly benefit our patients, their loved ones, and those who are responsible for their care. We offer the following services:

Nursing Services

Palliative care nursing at Crown Hospice means a lot more than becoming a certified end of life specialist. These Registered Nurses (RNs) act as a mentor and leader for other care team members. Our nurses will travel anywhere to provide in-home hospice care at home for our patients. Palliative care from RNs also comes in the form of our Pain Management program.

Physician Services

At Crown Hospice of Victoria, we’ve partnered with reputable, local physicians to provide palliative care.  If your loved one would prefer to continue seeing their personal physician after entering into our care, we’ll do everything within our power to honor that request. If the patient’s physician agrees to keep them as a patient, Crown Hospice physicians will collaborate with them to create your loved one’s end of life care plan.

Pain Management

Managing pain and improving comfort are crucial parts of hospice care and palliative care. Crown Hospice’s Pain Management services are customized to fit the needs of each patient and their respective comfort levels. Palliative treatment enhances the quality of life, which is our number one concern for all patients receiving end of life care.

Personal Care & Homemakers Services

For some of our patients, the ability to receive at-home hospice care is crucial for their comfort and happiness. This is why each care team has two people who are dedicated to performing personal care, and homemaker services, and activities of daily living (ADLs). Is the laundry ready to be folded or groceries ready for pickup? When it seems like completing domestic tasks just isn’t in the cards, Crown Hospice aides are here to help.

Spiritual Support

As a faith-based hospice care provider, Crown Hospice believes that spiritual support is just as important as physical care. Our team prays over our patients and their loved ones every week. Additionally, our Chaplains, Nurses, and volunteers are always here to pray over you and provide spiritual healing while on the job.

Spiritual care is optional. Regardless of what beliefs a patient and their loved ones have, we will honor their wishes to accept or deny spiritual support. The best kind of hospice is one that delivers exceptional end of life care to every single patient in the program no matter what.

We are proud to employ social workers who help gauge how patients, family members, and caregivers are coping. Our social workers are specifically trained to identify signs of depression, anxiety, and stress. Crown Hospice of Victoria social workers work closely with bereavement coordinators to ensure that emotional support is not only provided, but also prioritized throughout the entire hospice process.
