What is Hospice?
Hospice is comfort care, when a person chooses against aggressive medical treatment and instead chooses Quality of Life.
Hospice is also appropriate when an illness no longer responds to aggressive medical treatment.
Our goal is to provide the greatest quality of life for our patients and their families.
The Aria Hospice team of Doctors, Registered Nurses, Certified Home Health Aides, Social Workers, and Spiritual Counselors
develops an individualized care plan to meet each patient's unique needs.
How does hospice work ?
Hospice care is provided at home or a place of residence - such as a nursing home or other long-term care facility.
Medical equipment, supplies, medication, doctors, registered nurses, certified home health aides, therapists, and spiritual counselors make up our interdisciplinary team who travel to the home or residence.
WHO PAYS FOR HOSPICE?
Medicare, Medi-Cal, and private insurance.
Our dedicated and compassionate team will walk you through the process step-by-step.
WHEN DO YOU START HOSPICE?
Often families wait too long before starting hospice due to misunderstanding what it is.
Hospice care is about living each day to the fullest as comfortable as possible. Hospice is an informed choice. Call us for help with discussing hospice care with your doctor or family.
