Home health care and non-medical home care are two of the most commonly confused at-home services for seniors. What is the major difference between these two home services? The answer is this: Home health care services are most often performed by registered nurses and medically trained personnel whereas non-medical home care services are usually performed by professional caregivers.

Encompass Hospice offers compassionate hospice care to patients and their loved ones across the state of Texas, making it easy to find high-quality care near you. The goal of hospice care is to neither hasten or postpone death, but provide care and support at the end of life when curative measures are no longer the best option.
We help patients live fully and completely by focusing on symptom and pain management so they can live with dignity, not in fear. Our hospice team of skilled nurses, social workers, aides and medical directors takes the time to understand each patient’s needs on a deeper level and works alongside their physician to implement the best plan of care.
Chaplains and volunteers are also part of our team of hospice experts and help meet the spiritual and emotional needs of not only the patient, but their loved ones as well, through specialized bereavement services.
Encompass Health provides hospice care wherever the patient calls home , including assisted living facilities, nursing homes, hospitals and independent living facilities. No matter the setting, our team will coordinate with existing caregivers to ensure care and support for the patient and family.
