Alamo Hospice (Nonprofit)
Hospice Partners of America was founded by a team of experienced hospice professionals with a goal of providing exceptional hospice care across the country. Our compassionate hospice team was born out of the realization that while many hospice agencies are started on the principles of providing compassionate end-of-life care, most get bogged down in the complex business aspects of the healthcare environment. The increasing complexity of insurance, Medicare and hospice regulations causes many hospice providers to spend a majority of their time dealing with paper rather than people. But that is not the case with Hospice Partners of America.
Manages the patient’s pain and symptoms; assists the patient with the emotional and psychosocial and spiritual aspects of dying; provides needed drugs, medical supplies, and equipment; coaches the family on how to care for the patient; delivers special services like speech and physical therapy when needed; makes short-term inpatient care available when pain or symptoms become too difficult to manage at home, or the caregiver needs respite time; and provides bereavement care and counseling to surviving family and friends.
Care is covered under Medicare, Medicaid, most private insurance plans, HMOs, and other managed care organizations.
