The Hospice Brazos Valley team has seen first-hand the importance and value of personal connections. In order to enable each of our patient families can best mobilize their network of support during their hospice care experience,
we have partnered with CareFlash.
CareFlash is a Texas based company which was founded in 2006 after the founder's very personal experience with a family member's chronic health challenge and hospice care. CareFlash enables families to virtually and comfortably support and strengthen bonds during a health crisis, hospice journey and beyond. We encourage you to learn more and create your own "Careopolis" by using the link provided below.
During our admission nurse's initial visit with you and your family, you will be provided with an admission booklet that will provide answers to common questions, introduce you to your hospice care team, and inform you regarding your patient rights and levels of care available to you throughout your journey. This admission booklet is also available for you to preview and continue to refer to online below or share with family who may reside far from home.
