Most hospice care in America takes place in the home. But in-home hospice is not always the right answer. For some, around-the-clock nursing care is needed, or pain management is too complicated. For others, the memory of a loved one passing in the home can be too much to endure. This is where The T. Boone Pickens Center for Hospice and Palliative Care comes in.
With the leading support of legendary donor T. Boone Pickens, and numerous other generous donors, Forefront Living is redefining hospice care in Dallas. Spanning a 9-acre campus at Merit Drive and Churchill Way, The T. Boone Pickens Center includes 36 lake-facing patient care suites with balconies.
Spacious, private care suites for terminally ill adults and seniors. Each suite has a bed-accessible patio or balcony overlooking serene gardens and a lake. There are accommodations for families as well as a teen area, exercise room and family dining.
A tranquil space featuring a 5-acre lake, fountain, lighted walking trail and a 200-seat amphitheater for events, educational programs and memorial services. These beautiful outdoor spaces evoke a sense of calm and reduce stress, and are also open to the greater community.
This is where our growing partnerships with universities, hospitals and healthcare systems continue to transform end-of-life care. It’s the site for in-classroom and hands-on experiences, and will provide comprehensive resources for training and education on palliative care and grief support for both professionals and the public.
A source of personal support for patients, families and caregiving staff of all faiths, as well as a place for worship, celebrations of life and memorial services.
This is where social workers, counselors, music therapists and art therapists can encourage healthy emotional growth and bring unique comfort to children who have lost a sibling, parent or grandparent.
