Information Resources for Hospice Patients

Serving families in their time of greatest need.

In Dallas, Faith Presbyterian Hospice is a valuable resource for hospice patients providing information on hospice and palliative care. You may find useful links to be helpful at this time.

We’ve also prepared a downloadable Directory of Grief Support Resources containing a list of our own monthly support groups, valuable references to individual grief therapists, counseling and support groups, websites, recommended reading and more.

You may also wish to refer to our bereavement resources, information concerning healthcare directives, Frequently Asked Questions, and weblinks to national information sources related to hospice and health care.
