Hospice of East Texas is the only hospice to have a program focusing on the unique needs of Alzheimer’s and Dementia patients at the end of life and works closely with the Alzheimer's Alliance of Smith County. Specially trained "memory care connector" volunteers learn techniques to provide meaningful interaction with patients in our care who have Alzheimer's disease or any form of dementia. Showing our seriousness of helping our community, we are committed to have all our home heath aids receive their Dementia Care certificate (offered by TJC and Alzheimer's Alliance of Smith County) by the end of 2023.
Here is specific LEGAL information you should know when a family member is facing Alzheimer's and/or Dementia.
