What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Hospice Care

Without this program patients would not have access to our compassionate, dignified end-of-life care option, which allows patients to spend their final days as independently and comfortably as possible, in the place of their choosing whenever possible. Patient care is provided by Houston Hospice staff and volunteers in the patient's home, in a nursing home or residential facility, or in Houston Hospice's inpatient facility, the Margaret Cullen Marshall Hospice Care Center in The Texas Medical Center.

Population(s) Served

Through its Charity Care program, Houston Hospice provides hospice care annually to approximately100 terminally ill patients who do not have insurance or the funding needed to cover such expenses.
Each Houston Hospice service area is covered by an interdisciplinary care team consisting of a physician, nurse, hospice aide, social worker, chaplain and volunteer. Houston Hospice care teams are experts at managing life-limiting illness. The hospice team ensures that medication, therapies and treatments support an individualized care plan that is centered on the patient's goals.
Services are offered wherever the patient calls home, allowing friends and family to visit freely-something they might not be able to do in a hospital ICU. Patients needing round-the-clock or respite care find what they need at the Houston Hospice inpatient unit - the Margaret Cullen Marshall Hospice Care Center located in The Texas Medical Center.

Hospice is designed to support the more personal aspects of the final stage of life: reflecting on
one's legacy and life meaning, focusing on relationships in a deeper and more intentional way,
achieving a sense of closure and realizing any endoflife
goals. The hospice team also supports
families by interpreting what is happening with patients, helping caregivers respond appropriately
and explaining the signs of imminent death. Bereavement support is offered for up to one year after
the death to help family members through their grief journeys.
Why

Population(s) Served

The Houston Hospice Butterfly Program meets the needs of children living with life-threatening conditions such as cancer, muscular dystrophy, cystic fibrosis, severe brain problems, complications from prematurity, birth defects and rare disorders, among other conditions. Recognizing that everyone in the family is affected when one member is ill, the Butterfly Team focuses on the needs of the patient and family.Often, sadly, diseases which are inheritable may affect multiple family members, causing an even greater burden for families.
This specialized, interdisciplinary Butterfly Team provides expert management of pain and other physical symptoms such as shortness of breath, nausea, vomiting and anxiety.The team also offers emotional, spiritual and other support services to help the patient and family
cope with the roller coaster of emotions that result from dealing with a
child’s serious illness or condition. With pediatric illnesses, grief begins at the time of diagnosis. When acknowledged and discussed, it can be managed and the family can begin coping with the new normal. Siblings need information and support, parents need time to rest and to maintain their relationships and to address the financial and practical strains that come with an ill family member while still ensuring the
best care possible for the ill child.The Butterfly Team provides individualized attention to each family to make this tremendously challenging journey easier and to help families make the most of each moment they have together.
