At Hospice Group of Southern California, we provide our patients convenient and comfortable hospice care right inside their home. As an outpatient facility, we don’t have a physical office, but instead arrange for hospice physicians and nurses to give patients care at the location of their choosing. This gives you and your loved ones a familiar, comfortable environment for hospice care.
Patients who have critical illnesses often prefer to stay inside their homes during hospice care. When people choose hospice care, they have chosen not to undergo curative treatment, and thus extended hospital stays are irrelevant. Patients in hospice care won’t have to spend time in a sterile hospital environment, and they also save money they would’ve spent for the hospital bed. You may not have the immediate access to treatment you’ll get in a hospital, but you’ll have the comfort of having your care in your own home.
Your own home is the place you’re most comfortable in; you’ve tailored it to your own preferences and liking. People know every corner of their homes, which is especially important for elderly people who lack the mobility they used to have. Home hospice care strongly lowers these patients’ injury risks.
You also know where every item is in your house: every painting, book, piece of furniture, etc. This will give you peace of mind while you deal with the stress of the end-of-life period. In the hospital environment, you always have staff and patients coming in and out, whereas in your home you decide who you want to see and when you want to see them, including family, friends, and caregivers.
Hospice care in your home may be the best choice for you or your loved one if facing a terminal illness that will take six months or less to run its course. Reach out to Hospice Group of Southern California for home hospice care throughout Los Angeles, Simi Valley, Santa Monica, Northridge, and nearby areas such as Canoga Park, Chatsworth, Encino, and Glendale. We work alongside caregivers and patients to make sure your environment is comfortable and peaceful. We pride ourselves on providing you and your loved ones the compassionate care that everyone deserves near the end of life.
