Hospice care

  • Hospice provides holistic care … treating the mind, body and spirit of those persons nearing the end of life’s journey.
  • Hospice team members will provide support and assist you in making decisions about how and where you want to spend the rest of your life.
  • Hospice provides comfort measures and symptom management, so you no longer have to endure treatments and procedures.
  • Hospice provides support to family and friends as they travel the journey with their loved one.

Stages of hospice care may include:

  1.      Planning for end of life care
  2.      Spiritual and emotional care
  3.      Help at home
  4.      Bereavement support

Why Hospice?

  • Hospice treats you, not the disease. The focus is on care, not cure. A team of hospice professionals and volunteers addresses your and your family’s medical, social, emotional, and spiritual needs.
  • Hospice services are extended to your family, with your authorization. You and your family are included in the decision-making process.
  • Hospice will help you and your family makes choices about end-of-life issues and enables you to have greater control over these choices. Bereavement counseling will be provided to your family for up thirteen months.
  • Hospice offers palliative care, rather than curative treatment. Hospice will provide care and comfort when cure is no longer an option. Through ever advancing technology, pain and symptoms control will enable you to live as fully and comfortably as possible.
  • Hospice promotes quality of life.

When Is Hospice Right?

Qualifying for hospice care

Medicare and Medi-Cal both include provision for hospice services. Most private insurance plans also cover hospice services.

Anyone can refer a patient to hospice. Admission will include communication with the physician to determine medical eligibility. Qualifying patents are those:

  • With a life expectancy of 6 months or less if the illness runs its normal course;
  • Who desire comfort measures and symptom management;
  • Who desire a hospice team to administer care at place of residence

During admission, our nurse will visit you and/or your family to discuss hospice services, assess your immediate needs and collaborate to formulate a plan of care that you approve.

Hospice vs Palliative Care

Both palliative care and hospice focus on comfort and promoting quality of life, empowering the patient and family through education, and providing symptom management. Palliative care can begin at the time of diagnosis of a life-limiting illness and takes place at the same time as treatment. Hospice care starts when treatment of the life-limiting illness stops, and the patient chooses comfort measures and symptom management only.

Bereavement Services

Bereavement services are an integral part of the hospice program. Following a terminal diagnosis, patients and families often struggles with anticipatory grief issues. The medical social worker and spiritual counselor are available to assist families during this emotionally difficult time, as well as provide information on common aspects of anticipatory grief.

Following a hospice patient’s death, Hospice continues to provide bereavement support to grieving families. While one individual is identified as the primary contact with the family, generally the spouse or primary caregiver, all members of the family are eligible to receive bereavement services.

Bereavement services are available for 13 months following the patient’s death. They include periodic mailings to provide support and education regarding grief issue, connection with a grief support group, phone contacts. For needs that exceed the scope of hospice bereavement services, referrals to other organizations and professionals within the community are available. These services are also made available to anyone in the community in which hospice services are provided.
