Welcome to The Hospice of East Texas
Whether provided in the home, hospital, long-term care facility or anywhere else, hospice is a compassionate way of caring for those with a life-limiting illness. The Hospice of East Texas has been providing this loving care to patients and their families throughout the communities of East Texas since 1982.
Coping with terminal illness presents many challenges – physical, emotional, social and spiritual. The caring, experienced team of professionals at The Hospice of East Texas is prepared to meet those challenges, and believes that no one, regardless of age, illness or financial circumstances, should have to face death alone or in pain.
Hospice of East Texas is closely watching the COVID-19 situation and monitoring recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and state and local authorities.
To that end, necessary precautionary measures have been taken affecting our staff, volunteers and patients, all based on prudent, cautious intervention and social distancing (less exposure to multiple people).
• All activity by Hospice of East Texas volunteers, both in homes and in HomePlace has been temporarily suspended.
• Changes have been made to visitation in HomePlace, including:
- Visiting hours will be restricted to 8:00 am to 9:00 pm daily.
- Only immediate family will be allowed to visit
-Temperatures of guests wishing to visit HomePlace will be taken, and guests questioned about their health status.
These procedures are in place through the end of March, and we will continue to monitor and adjust as needed. Thank you for your flexibility and patience. As in all we do at Hospice of East Texas, the best interests of our patients, staff and volunteers are our top priority.
Due to concerns about the coronavirus, we have postponed our upcomimg fundraising event, Hope Blooms.
The event will now take place on August 18 from 10 to 1 at Tyler's Rose Garden Center.
Please mark your calendars and plan to join us for the same fun shopping and delicious food,
all to benefit Home Place.
See you in August!
