Helping our Patients and Families

Memorial Hermann Hospice recognizes the key role family plays in the life of a child. Our goal is to support caregivers and families, respecting the decisions they make for their children. We also encourage maintaining normal patterns of living should your child need inpatient hospice and forming partnerships with those physicians/clinicians.

Hospice care is provided in the comfort of the child’s home. This may be the family’s home or a healthcare facility. Some pediatric patients may require an inpatient setting for a short time. Children will be stabilized, made comfortable and returned to their home setting. Memorial Hermann Hospice has a dedicated hospice inpatient unit located near Memorial Hermann Memorial City Medical Center.

Palliation of Symptoms

When a child is ill, it can be difficult to make the best choices regarding the management of symptoms. Our team is here to help. We will work with you and your child to understand his or her illness and provide the specialized care and support required to improve the child’s quality of life. The Memorial Hermann Hospice Pediatric Programs provides concurrent hospice and palliation of symptoms.

Having a child with a serious illness is difficult enough; trying to understand and manage the child’s symptoms can become overwhelming. Whether the illness is a new diagnosis or your child has been living with the illness for some time, more than likely you and your child are experiencing a range of emotions and may be wondering how you will face the challenges that serious illness brings. Our team can provide you and your child with the knowledge and support to handle the emotional, physical and spiritual changes that you, your child and your family may face during this time. The goal is to enhance not only your child’s quality of life but also yours.
