Supportive, Palliative Care
Faith Community Hospice provides comprehensive hospice services for those with life-threatening illnesses. We serve Baytown, TX and the surrounding areas.
With hospice, our team provides practical help to you and your family. We focus on pain management and symptom control. The team also works to establish trust and give time for the patient and family to share their confidences and concern to alleviate fears.
Home Health Care
At least 80% of our patients’ care is provided in their home environment. The most common places of residence are home, long-term care facilities, personal care homes, and assisted living facilities. The patient/family unit defines “home.” Care is provided for terminally ill patients as needed 24/7.
Short-term inpatient care is available based on specific criteria and medical and regulatory guidelines.
Short-Term Respite Care
Caregivers face difficult challenges when supporting a loved one with a life-threatening illness. At times, a break is necessary. We provide respite care for up to five days on an occasional basis to relieve a caregiver who is caring for the patient at home.
Continuous Home Care
In some cases, we may determine that intensive care is necessary at home to manage acute symptoms. This care is round-the-clock, and as such, is based on medical and regulatory guidelines.
Regardless of the services required, our dedication to you and your family is defined by our mission, “To Comfort Always.”
