The best time to discuss about hospice care is when you still don’t need it. Discussing about matters regarding end-of-life care can be very difficult especially when the problem is already there. Now is the best time to discuss because if you are still unaffected by any disease, you can still make educated and sound decisions that will best benefit your family and yourself.
You may easily call us through our numbers 818-433-0068 for a more detailed discussion and consultation. The process starts by you inquiring about our hospice or palliative care services.
The only reason why 24 hour hospice care is needed is if the pain and symptoms can not be controlled by periodic nurse visits. We have a 24-hour on-call clinic support that you may call. We also have nurses, chaplains, and social workers available if necessary and upon request.
We try getting hospice care covered 100% under insurance such as Medicare, Medicaid, PPO’s or HMO’s. A majority of the time there will be no out of pocket pay.
Hospice care is intended and designed to give people who are affected with incurable diseases a hope to live a life with dignity and comfort to ease the pain and symptoms brought about by their disease. Hospice provides the patient with care programs like palliative care so they need not suffer the pains of their disease and can still enjoy the last days of their lives.
Hospice centers on fighting the depression, the pain, and the loneliness brought about by terminal illnesses and not fight the illness itself. We believe that everyone should be given the chance to have a choice on how to spend the last days of their lives and for those who want to fill their last days surrounded by warmth and comfort and activities that are meaningful, we open our arms and facility to provide exactly that for them.
Being in hospice doesn’t mean giving up hope on being well. It simply means opting to see the brighter side while at the same time, preparing soon enough should the worst come. Our services include medical care, pain management, spiritual counseling, and respite and bereavement care for the families.

The doctor’s expect the patient to live 6 months or less if the disease runs its normal course. Hospice care does not decrease or increase the life of a patient. Our aim is to control the pain and symptoms through medicine and therapy. It is not possible to be able to determine how long a patient will live. We have had patients who live a couple of days and patients who live longer than the 6 months.
In hospice care the patient is expected to live 6 months or less. In palliative care the doctor does not have that expectation. Palliative care patients are still seeking treatment and are usually diagnosed at early stages, where as in hospice they are in the final stages of the disease.
In 2018, the NHPCO reports that the average cost of hospice care per patient was $12,200.
At the routine home care (RHC) level, Medicare pays approximately $200 per day.
A hospice patient cannot receive 24 hour care at home in normal circumstances. Hospice members are responsible for providing hospice care periodically. In order to receive 24 hour hospice care at home, you must have uncontrolled pain and symptoms, at which point Routine Home Care is changed to Continuous Home Care, which allows for 24 hour hospice care.
