Hospice and Palliative Care
in Dallas, Texas


To think that hospice and palliative care is only about dying would be to misunderstand the unique blessings hospice and palliative services bring. And though they are not the same thing, they can and do overlap in an effort to bring the greatest experience of comfort, enrichment, and love to you and your family. 


Palliative Care

is specialized medical care for people with serious illness. It is focused on providing patients with relief from the symptoms, pain, and stress of such an illness—whatever the diagnosis.  

Hospice Care

helps people with a life-limiting illness focus on living as well, and as fully, as possible for as long as possible. Hospice brings comfort, dignity and peace to people facing a terminal illness and may incorporate palliative care in that effort.

At Faith Presbyterian Hospice, we believe that how well one lives each moment is what matters most, which includes providing support and care for family caregivers, too.

The Faith Promise

Since 2003, some 12,000 Dallas-area families—of all faiths, ethnicities and circumstances—have turned to Faith Presbyterian Hospice. We’re the largest and the most highly rated nonprofit provider of senior, hospice and palliative care in the metroplex.

People, not profits, are our priority.

Frequently Asked Questions

When is the right time?

There may come a point when a physician’s best recommendation for you is to spend your remaining days in meaningful contemplation and loving interaction with family and friends. Arriving at this decision earlier rather than later can have a tremendously beneficial effect upon events as they unfold.

Though you may be unable to halt the progression of this life-limiting condition, you can, in fact, keep it from taking control of the last days of your life. Making the assertion to enter hospice affirms your will and desire to embrace the present, and lets you look to your future filled with faith and hope according to your personal beliefs.

Hospice care is a place of safety and support, where your physical, emotional and spiritual needs are being provided for, thus restoring a measure of control in your life to focus on what matters most to you. The result is often a profound sense of peace that now overshadows what has been a mortal struggle.
