When medical treatments do not offer a cure and you or a loved one face a life-limiting illness or injury, it is time for hospice care. Hospice care is a team-oriented approach and is tailored to the patient’s needs and wishes. Hospice recognizes that a person’s quality of life is the most important aspect. Our interdisciplinary team of hospice care professionals help patents live each day as comfortable and purposefully as possible while offering assistance to their families and caregivers along the way.
Why Choose Us
When Hospice of the Big Country joined the West Texas Rehabilitation Center in 2000, it was a perfect fit. The Rehab is known for providing the best outpatient therapy care to the Big Country for over 50 years. This union allowed West Texas Rehabilitation Center to continue its same philosophy to patients confronting the end of their life.
West Texas Rehabilitation Center’s Hospice of the Big Country has been serving the Big Country and the 11 surrounding counties since its inception in 1992. At that time, the hospice programs were only available to residents in Taylor County.
Our hospice team members are dedicated professionals and trained volunteers who specialize in meeting the needs of the terminally ill patients and their families. Our Medical Directors make house calls.
We provide hospice care regardless of your ability to pay. Medicare covers hospice as well as some insurance companies, but Hospice of the Big Country turns no one away who qualifies for hospice services. We serve Taylor and the 11 surrounding counties.
