Compassion Hospice is now offering a grief and bereavement support group that is open to the community and is free of charge. This group is for those coping with life trials and loss. It can be for a variety of reasons: relocating, coping with a diagnosis, loss of a friend or loved one, or simply to connect with other people to feel healthy again. This meeting is to inspire and to be a helping hand for those in need. For additional information call Lindsey Rivas at 409-835-8357.

At Compassion Hospice, we honor all veterans – I had the extreme honor of meeting one of our local Army Veterans of the Vietnam War just this afternoon and saying thank you for your service . Times have changed, they didn’t come home with the respect and gratitude we try to show today.

Below is a moving video from the people at The Vietnam War marked a time of social unrest that divided our nation like never before. Service members returning home with physical and emotional scars were greeted with an unprecedented level of disrespect and dishonor. The courage and sacrifice of our veterans cannot be overstated. When you encounter them, thank them for their service. You never know how powerful those words may be.

America’s veterans have done everything asked of them in their mission to serve our country, and we want to be there for them when they are faced with a life-limiting, terminal illness. We take great care to ensure America’s veterans receive the care and attention they need and deserve. That is why Compassion Hospice takes part in the We Honor Veterans Program , a collaboration between the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization and the Department of Veterans Affairs. We understand the unique issues that veterans and their families face and can provide the care (including nursing, counseling, pain and symptom management, medical equipment and supplies) they need.

This care is integral to our “more moments” belief – with our team of highly skilled and compassionate members, we will treat you and your family with the dignity and respect you deserve. Call us today in our Beaumont office at 409-835-8357 or our Jasper / Lakes Area office at 409-383-5280 – we can discuss your wishes and goals for your care 24/7.

Thank you For Your Service

Loving care, it’s the driving mission behind Compassion Hospice. We strive to provide the best hospice experience possible for our patients and their families – discussing it every day with every team member and every potential team member in their interviews. The results of our mission is best revealed when a family member takes the time to write back to us and/ or respond in the satisfaction surveys sent by another company to the family and then on to Medicare. I want to share a few of the notes sent back to our team from those families we’ve cared for over the last few months.

Mellouise was wonderful! She showed my mom and our family so much love and COMPASSION. She will always hold a very special place in my heart. I Will Never Forget the Loving Care She Gave My Mom on her last day with us.

The young lady who took care of my husband, was very gentle. She was very good with him. She came each morning for his bath. Thank you!

All hospice staff were caring and considerate. I am very appreciative of the care they provided my aunt and me. Have recommended this company to several friends.

The people that we dealt with were beyond kind. I am so thankful to have had them in our lives at this difficult time. They always called me right back when needed and guided me every step of the way. Excellent group of people. Thanks to all.

Very caring and loving. Always in an uplifting mood. Very positive to all the family.

I was so impressed with the compassion staff. Every one of the ladies was fabulous and always there for my daddy and I. Even to this day, I still receive phone calls in support of losing my daddy.

Great team in this tragic time.

They were wonderful and made us feel as if they were very dear friends. They were a blessing to us.

I am sooo proud of our team and the work they do, they truly show the character and integrity we look for when we want someone to care for us and our loved ones.

Loving Care

Alzheimer’s Disease is one of our most challenging diseases to deal with, for both the one experiencing the loss of memory, dignity and function, and their caregivers. When a loved one has Alzheimer’s there are five situations that may occur that are especially difficult for Alzheimer’s Caregivers to come to terms with. These include 1) when it’s time to move the person to a facility, 2) if the person finds a new love interest, 3) when the person no longer talks, 4) when the person no longer recognizes you, and 5) when it’s time to engage hospice care services.

Number 5 is written to in an excellent article posted here. “The need to involve hospice can be extremely difficult and even depressing. It’s common to dwell on dark thoughts of impending death. Some families delay ordering hospice care because it would force them to acknowledge that the end is near and they just can’t deal with that.”

“In reality, the decision to enroll a loved one in hospice care signifies anything but giving up. It is the most courageous, selfless, and compassionate action one can possibly take once a loved one once has reached the final stage of life.”
