What Services are provided by Rivercity Hospice?
“Hospice care is a covered benefit under Medicare, most private insurance plans, HMOs and managed care organizations. Hospice is also available through Medicaid. While each hospice has its own policies concerning payment for care, it is a founding principle of Rivercity Hospice to offer services based upon the patient's need. For those with economic hardship and having difficulty obtaining services, Rivercity Hospice Foundation was created to address the needs of patients who have no resources available to them. The contributions received are earmarked for the communities from which they came. Each fundraiser ensures that we come closer to meeting the needs of another patient. We are dedicated to the 106 counties in Texas that we service and want to do everything we can to deliver compassionate and dignified care. We believe that all patients who are eligible for hospice, should receive hospice. After all, this is the time when quality of life matters most.”
We believe that each patient's life experience is unique - many of the problems, coping strategies and emotions are not. Our specialized experience can help patients and their families accept the life limiting illness, and effectively address the frustrations and seek personal motivation, peace and comfort. Our mission is to professionally managed Hospice care provides our patient with a comfortable, dignified and supportive experience. Utilizing continuity of care allows for an earlier hospital discharge and provides the patient an opportunity to live the rest of their life the way they choose .... at home with family and friends.
