HOSPICE SERVICES

Hospice focuses on the physical, emotional, spiritual comfort of a patient when curative measures have ended. Hospice emphasizes quality rather than length of life. The hospice program stresses human values that go beyond the physical needs of the patient. Hospice care can dramatically impact the amount of pain and suffering being experienced, providing quality time to live comfortably and fully with privacy and dignity in your own home or care facility. Hospice care is a covered benefit under most Private Insurance plans, Medicare, Medi-cal and Private Pay.
