Needing Hospice Care, for so long, the residents of East Texas did not have a choice.
Frankly, we at Legacy Hospice feel you deserve the right to make a choice in your Hospice provider. During this difficult time, the last thing you should be confronted is a lack of control over who cares for your loved one.
Legacy Hospice began accepting patients in July 2003. Since we are a small Hospice, our patients and their loved ones are known personally by our entire field staff of experienced, compassionate and professional individuals.
The rapport our agency establishes with our patients and their loved ones is invaluable and has tremendous meaning to our staff and agency. Our entire staff is dedicated to supporting our patients and their loved ones during a very difficult time. We are committed to our patients and their loved ones needs every step of the way.
Our staff ensures that our patients and their loved ones are fully involved in the care of the patient. We take the time to listen to the patient and their loved one for we realize that our patient may have no control over their disease process, but they are in full control of their care.
