Home Hospice Care
The Hospice Group of Southern California team advocate for the rights of terminally ill patients and their families.
We believe that patients should be apprised of their clinical prognosis and be involved in the decision-making process that determines how their end-of-life care is provided.
ROUTINE HOME CARE
Hospice Group of Southern California, Inc. provides residential care in patients’ homes and has established partnerships with long-term care facilities and nursing homes, assisted living facilities and residential care facilities for the elderly.
If a patient develops the need for continuous care, we can provide shifts of hospice staff, including palliative care doctors and nurses, at the patient’s home for a brief period so the patient can avoid being transferred to a hospital.
DEDICATED INPATIENT UNITS
Hospice Group of Southern California, Inc. has special arrangements with local hospitals and other facilities if patients require additional support that can’t be provided at home.
Limited to five consecutive days, respite care provides a period of rest for the patient’s primary caregiver. Home care patients will be admitted to an inpatient facility without having to meet the normal pain and symptom management criteria.
