At all levels of our organization, we’re dedicated to making each moment matter for the people we serve by providing the highest level of care and the deepest level of respect for all we serve and influence. The needs of those we serve—patients and families throughout Dallas—go beyond medical care alone. Our first mission at Faith Presbyterian is to meet and then exceed your expectations by providing:
Faith Presbyterian Hospice holds the Gold Seal Certification awarded by The Joint Commission for Accreditation of Healthcare Facilities for excellence in healthcare quality and safety. Very few hospice centers seek or attain this level of recognition, which is a critical benchmark to consider when choosing hospice services.
Faith is also accredited by the National Institute for Jewish Hospice, specially trained to care for those patients and families in the traditions of the Jewish faith.
Faith is a proud partner of We Honor Veterans, a program of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) in collaboration with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). The program empowers us to meet the unique needs of America’s Veterans and their families by offering guidance and resources focused on respectful inquiry, compassionate listening, and grateful acknowledgment so that Veterans can be guided toward a more peaceful ending.
This level of care can be provided at home or in nursing facilities, assisted living facilities, or independent senior living homes. Licensed nurses, spiritual caregivers, social workers, certified nursing assistants, bereavement counselors, trained volunteers, music therapists, and massage therapists make up the team that provides the care. Routine home care also includes medications, medical equipment, and medical supplies related to the terminal diagnosis.
A nurse and/or a home health aide will remain in the patient’s home environment for eight to 24 hours per day. Continuous care is a short-term level of care reevaluated every 24 hours. Symptoms requiring 24/7 care: unrelieved pain, severe nausea and vomiting, severe shortness of breath, anxiety or panic attacks.
Some patients have short-term, uncontrollable symptoms so severe they cannot get adequate treatment at home. With inpatient care, nurses are available around the clock to administer medications, treatments, and emotional support to make the patient more comfortable. Symptoms requiring inpatient care are the same as those requiring continuous care. This can be provided at Faith’s T. Boone Pickens Hospice and Palliative Care Center or in the hospital where the patient is receiving care.
This is a benefit providing 4 nights and 5 days of care for the patient. If a patient’s family needs temporary care for numerous reasons, they may request respite care. A patient would be temporarily admitted to an inpatient facility to give the family a needed break for respite.
For various reasons, a patient can be admitted or moved into Faith’s inpatient center, the T. Boone Pickens Hospice and Palliative Care Center. Costs for routine hospice care are typically covered by various government entities, including Medicare, Medicaid, healthcare programs sponsored by the Veterans Administration and private medical insurance, but the room and board is private pay when admitted as residential care.
Other factors that distinguish Faith Presbyterian Hospice are how we personalize care according to an individual’s particular condition, along with additional, integrated therapies not required by Medicare, but which are employed by our care team.
