AIM Hospice exists to provide individualized help to the terminally ill, regardless of race, color, creed, national origin or ability to pay, so that they may live out the last months of life as actively and comfortably as possible. We believe that we, together with thte patient and caregiver, form the team which assists the patient to live fully and actively and to die comfortably and with dignity in his or her chosen environment. We believe that death with dignity completes the cycle of life. We will act as advocates for our patients so they can attain the highest quality of health and comfort which affirms life and recognizes dying as a normal part of life.
In 1986; Akin, Iles & Murphy formed a hospice program to serve Rockport & the surrounding area.
During the summer of 1987 AIM Hospice was officially formed as a non-profit hospice. The first board meeting was held on October 26, 1987. Our first patient was admitted on January 15, 1988.
We are proud that AIM Hospice has been providing services to the Coastal Bend for over twenty-nine years.
The lack of sufficient funding is an ongoing hardship which is relieved in part, by grants & donations. We sincerely appreciate the support given by individuals and the community. Your generosity has helped keep hospice services available to all who need them, regardless of their ability to pay.
AIM Hospice's goals are to provide upmost quality of services to our patients, families & the community. We believe it is your right to make decisions regarding end-of-life care. Hospice is about increasing the quality of the days remaining in you own environment with loved ones & the support of our compassionate hospice staff & volunteers.
