Dignity, Comfort, and Care
Compassionate end-of-life care, with the complete support of a qualified professional team: This is the exceptional hospice of Blue Skies of Texas.

Treasure the Day
Every day in hospice care is a special day to treasure. We do our part, helping the individual manage pain and ensuring their comfort. And then, alongside their family and friends, we focus on the positive meaning and exceptional legacy of the individual’s life.

The higher standard we stretch to reach is the certainty that each individual in our care – and their family and friends – feel at peace with the dignity, comfort, and care we provide.

What do I like to do at Blue Skies?
How long do you have to listen?
VALERIE B, RESIDENT
It’s kind of crazy, but you always hear retired people say
they’re busier in retirement than when they were working,
and it really turned out to be true!
PAT P, RESIDENT
My wife and I have decided this is where we’re
planning on living when we retire. We want our children
to care about us, not have to care for us.
GENERAL DARRELL JONES, CEO
We moved in and it was like, ‘Whoa!
This is where we belong. Everything’s here.’
FIDEL & EPPIE E, RESIDENTS
I have lived at Blue Skies for 5 years. The entire staff continues to amaze us
with their extraordinary care, love, and support. They do this not only during
‘ordinary’ times but in this challenging time as well.
FRANK H, RESIDENT
We moved here to find the best of both worlds! Moving here while
still able to live independently, we have taken the hard task of
providing future care decisions as we age, off our children’s plate.
Our first reaction was that this looked like home.
ROLAND & BARBARA K, RESIDENTS
Living at Blue Skies of Texas West for seven years has been a great experience.
The administration, the staff, and the residents create a dynamic atmosphere that
would be hard to beat. I call it ‘my little place just this side of Heaven!’

Frequently Asked Questions
Hospice brings dignity to the end of life, creating a place that honors the individual and their family and friends. To do so, we keep medical professionals and services close at hand, ensuring the patient is comfortable and free of pain and suffering. Professionals include physicians, nurses, social workers, chaplains and home care providers.
End-of-life decisions are as difficult as any that loved ones can make. Conversations with medical professionals, clergy, family and friends, other counseling professionals – these are all frequently part of this journey of decision-making. Most importantly, the person nearing the end of life is involved as much as possible in determining their own destiny.
Blue Skies Hospice extends well beyond our gates and into the greater community at large. Our compassionate and experienced team ensure that you and your family benefit the best care possible, whether you have lived in our community for years or elsewhere.
