Our Home Health Care Services
Home Health Care is a way to provide an individual with follow-up care after hospitalization, a change in medical condition or post-rehabilitation.
The best way to recover is in your own home with family and friends available for assistance.

Hospice Care Services
Hospice is a very special way of caring for people with terminal illness and their loved ones. The focus is on care and not cure. Hospice uses a team approach consisting of people with different skills, working together to plan and coordinate care.
Comprehensive Hospice Care is provided through an interdisciplinary, medically directed team. Our team approaches the care for a dying person through physicians, nurses, home health aides, social workers, volunteers, spiritual care coordinators and therapists.
- Hospice Nurse: They make regular scheduled visits to the patient providing expert pain management and symptom control techniques. The nurse keeps the primary physician informed of the patient’s condition throughout the time they are under hospice care.
- Home Health Aides: HHA provide assistance with the personal care to our patients.
- Medical Social Workers (MSW): They evaluate the need for assistance, practical and financial concerns emotional support, counseling and bereavement. They also access the need for volunteers and other support services needed by the family to help facilitate communications between family and other community agencies.
- Spiritual Care: We provide spiritual care support to a patient and their family. We will serve as a liaison between them and their religious community. An interfaith chaplain offers spiritual support and pastoral counseling. In addition, the chaplain can assist families with funeral and memorial planning.
- Volunteer Services: Volunteers provide additional support. They help with household chores or grocery shopping – any number of things you might ask of a friend. They may stay with the patient so the caregiver can take a break.
- Grief Support: Individual grief counseling and support groups for youth and adults are offered to individuals who have suffered the loss of a loved one. These services are not limited to those whose loved one received hospice services.
- Therapy: If clinically required we provide Physical, Occupational, and Speech therapy to our hospice patients.
Admission and Financial Arrangements
Comprehensive services are available to anyone who has made the decision to seek palliative (comfort) care. Eligibility for hospice services is determined by the patient’s physician, or our medical director, who certifies that the patient has a life-limiting illness with a prognosis of six months or less.
Comprehensive accepts Medi-Cal, Medicare and private insurances. There are little if any out of pocket costs. Medications, medical supplies and equipment related to the hospice diagnosis are provided depending on the coverage. Co-payment and services not covered by insurance will be billed to the patient.
