Hospice is not a place but a philosophy of care for the terminally ill, allowing clients to die in peace and comfort at home with loved ones close by.
The hospice team of professionals and volunteers serve the terminally ill by affirming the value of living fully in the days that remain. Their focus is on the person and the family, not the disease.
Hospice team members facilitate and encourage an optimum level of client activity and independence. Through palliative care, which both enhances comfort and improves quality of life, our clients and their families can begin to prepare mentally and spiritually to face the challenges before and after death.
Hospice of Lubbock is the South Plains’ only full-service hospice organization dedicated to both children and adults. It has faithfully served our 19-county region of West Texas since 1986.
Hospice of Lubbock offers a special kind of care designed to meet the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of terminally ill clients and their families. Additionally, Hospice of Lubbock has in-patient capability with local and regional hospitals for those who may not wish to remain at home, require pain crisis intervention, or whose primary caregiver requires respite.
