Seven Ways to Get Better Cancer Care

Studies have shown wide variances in cancer care exist across the US, here are 7 tips for Receiving Better Cancer Care:

http://www.pbs.org/newshour/rundown/7-ways-to-get-better-cancer-care/

“Don’t confuse palliative and hospice care with giving up hope of living longer. In actuality, patients with invasive cancers who receive palliative care along with cancer treatments tend to enjoy better quality of life and live longer. Similarly, cancer patients who receive hospice care tend to live longer than those who don’t.”

Compassion Hospice offers our Bridges program – free to the public, we’re here to help improve the quality of life for both patients and families facing advanced or chronic illness. We offer guidance, support to alleviate stress and anxiety, and education for those living with advanced or chronic illness.

“The reasons are not mysterious. Palliative and hospice care teams provide meticulous clinical attention to people’s pain and other symptoms, as well as support for their emotional and spiritual concerns. These programs provide medications needed to control pain and other discomfort, visits by highly skilled nurses, a team of professionals, and quick access to someone to answer questions or manage problems 24 hours a day. It’s little wonder that people with advanced cancer who receive such comprehensive whole-person care are able to feel a bit better and survive longer.”

New Year, New Opportunities

2013 was another banner year for Compassion Hospice – besides helping a growing number of Southeast Texans during this important time, we provided >$150,000 in free care to the area’s needy, grew the number of Southeast Texans employed by Compassion Hospice by 50%, AND had a great color run fundraiser featuring Southeast Texas’ own Kree Harrison, all while focusing on providing a world-class hospice experience for our friends, families and loved ones.

2014 promises to be even better as we move into new facilities to accommodate our growing team – look for construction to begin soon on Eastex Freeway next to Cathedral In the Pines. We’ll be adding sister companies to extend our compassionate caring services to those in need. We are also focusing more within the company on our staff development and education – our goal this year to be among the leaders nation-wide in quality care.

We thank everyone for trusting us with the care of your loved ones, it is truly an honor. We look forward to doing more of the same in 2014.

Join us this Saturday!
