Mission Statement

TLC Hospice of Austin is committed to providing specialized care designed for people in the last phase of an incurable illness. We provide many benefits that are not possible in a traditional health-care setting. The focus of care is on pain and symptom relief so our patients can live their life in comfort and peace. Hospice is not a place, but a concept of care that can be provided wherever the patient considers home. It may be in a residential home, an assisted living facility, or a nursing home. We recognize the unique physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual needs of each person receiving hospice care.

Description

Our comprehensive hospice services are provided by an interdisciplinary team of compassionate professionals. Our core team includes home-visiting physicians, skilled hospice nurses, clinical social workers, chaplains, hospice aides, specially-trained volunteers, and grief counselors. We also offer physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, dietary consultation, and complementary therapies such as pet, massage, and music therapy.

People who choose hospice are not giving up hope, they are in fact redefining it. Though there may no longer be a possibility of curing their illness, they redirect their hope into mending and restoring relationships, spending quality time with those they love, and finding peace and comfort.
