Hospice Care, often referred to as palliative care or comfort care, refers to the special attention needed by patients with a terminal illness. Hospice neither hastens nor postpones death; instead, it focuses on comforting the patient by addressing issues causing physical and emotional pain. Hospice care differs from other forms of health care in that it not only addresses the needs of the patient, but also the needs of his or her family. The goals of Bluebonnet Hospice care are to improve the quality of life for the patient and to support his or her loved ones.

Our Approach

Bluebonnet Hospice was founded and operates on three basic principles:

Providing Exceptional Patient Care

At Bluebonnet, we live and breathe exceptional patient care. Bluebonnet’s care is not governed by the clock, but rather defined by the patient’s and family’s needs. Whether the visit is half an hour or 24 hours, Bluebonnet’s staff is committed to provide exceptional care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Exceeding Expectations

Bluebonnet’s goal is to exceed the expectations of the patient and everyone involved in that patient’s life. It is our goal to provide outstanding care in all areas including but not limited to: keeping the patient comfortable and pain free, consulting and counseling with all family members, assisting in the bereavement process, and working side by side with skilled nursing facilities and assisted living centers to ensure exceptional patient care.

Trust and Commitment

Bluebonnet’s staff understands our word is our bond. When we make a commitment, we follow through. Whether it be a scheduled visit, a social work consult, or community involvement, Bluebonnet makes a commitment to our families.
