HomePlace

Although the primary focus of The Hospice of East Texas is home hospice care, there are times when caring for a loved one at home is simply not possible. When symptoms cannot be managed at home, or when families are having difficulty coping, The Hospice of East Texas offers a wonderful alternative – HomePlace.

Housed in the Robert M. Rogers Hospice Center, HomePlace is a state-of-the-art in-patient facility designed with patient care and family needs in mind. Twenty-eight private rooms offer hospice patients and their families all the comforts of home while providing round-the-clock, expert medical care.
