The Hospice Team

Our entire team works closely together, constantly communicating about our patients to provide the best care and bring them the most comfort.

  • Physician-directed services by the hospice medical director are offered in conjunction with the patient's primary physician. The hospice medical director will make home visits as needed.
  • Nurses: We have highly skilled Registered Nurses (RN) and Licensed Vocational Nurses (LVN) working with each patient in pain and symptom control, coordinating care in the home and in an in-patient setting. Nurses are available day and night to ensure the patient is comfortable.
  • Social Workers: Our social workers provide counseling and support services, helping patients and their loved ones prepare for end-of-life decisions. They have a lot of resources for families during the bereavement period whether for funeral planning, advanced directives, power of attorney, counseling, help with paperwork and more.
  • Chaplains: Our chaplains provide non-denominational spiritual guidance for the patient and their family. If you are home, the chaplain will visit based on the need of the patient or family. The chaplain also serves as the bereavement coordinator during the 13 month follow up program.
  • Home Health Aids: Our Home Health Aids provide personal and homemaking services of daily living. These activities include bathing, dressing, eating and feeding. These are typically hour long sessions based on the patient’s needs.
  • Dieticians: Our dieticians provide dietary consultations as needed.
  • Volunteers: Memorial Hermann Hospice has amazing volunteers in the home setting and our inpatient facility. These volunteers have typically been touched by the hospice experience and want to give back. Whether it’s baking cookies, reading to the patients, watching TV with the patients or just being there visiting, our volunteers are there to provide company or run errands.
