Every Guest who comes to ABODE must be a patient of a hospice agency in the San Antonio area. We do not bring anyone to ABODE who is not receiving hospice care.
We work with people in the last three months of life.
When a need for services is recognized, hospice social workers call ABODE (210.967.9891) and make a referral. Clincials may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once the referral is made, the person's name is added to our waiting list. Our waiting list typically has 10 - 25 names.
Once a room is available, Suzette, our Nurse Liasion, starts at the beginning of the waiting list to determine who to visit. Suzette or Martha Jo, our Executive Director, will meet the potential guest and family in their home, apartment, hospital room, or care center.
If the guest is able to communicate, we talk gently and frankly about where they feel they are in their illness, what they need and want, and if there are caregivers, what the caregivers need and want.
We only bring people to ABODE who understand they are at the end of their life and want to be with us.
If you are a family member and want to have your person considered for care at ABODE, contact your family member's social worker at their hospice. This is the only way to have someone placed on our waiting list.
We do not charge for our services. We do graciously accept and appreciate donations.
