Survivors Benefits

Use our Survivors Planner to look at survivors benefits from two sides:

1. How your family members are protected if you die,   and
2. How you may qualify as a survivor on someone else’s Social Security record.

This protection is particularly important for young families with children.

Hospice of East Texas

Hospice_logoThe primary focus of hospice care is quality of life through comfort, dignity and understanding. Whether provided in the home, hospital, long-term care facility or anywhere else, hospice is a compassionate way of caring for those with a life-limiting illness.

The Hospice of East Texas has been providing loving care to patients and their families and service to the communities of east Texas since 1982. We understand that coping with terminal illness presents many challenges – physical, emotional, social and spiritual.

Our caring, experienced team of professionals and volunteers is prepared to meet those challenges and believes that no one, regardless of age, illness or ability to pay, should have to die alone or in pain.

The Compassionate Friends Network

Grief Support After the Death of a Child

The Compassionate Friends is about transforming the pain of grief into the elixir of hope. It takes people out of the isolation society imposes on the bereaved and lets them express their grief naturally. With the shedding of tears, healing comes. And the newly bereaved get to see people who have survived and are learning to live and love again.”

—Simon Stephens, Founder of The Compassionate Friends

The Center for Loss & Life Transition

CenterForLoss
Founded by Dr. Alan Wolfelt more than 20 years ago to compassionately support both mourners, by walking with them in their unique life journeys, and professional and lay caregivers, by serving as an educational resource and professional forum.

If you are grieving, want to support someone who is, or work with mourners in your role as bereavement caregiver, you’ve come to the right place.
