Hospice provides care for a patient at home or in an inpatient facility, surrounded by family and friends. Care can be established wherever you call home. At Pacific Coast Hospice, we understand the unique needs and challenges you and your loved ones face, no matter where you are in your journey. We are dedicated to supporting you with expert care and compassion to help you live comfortably and fully.
Pacific Coast Hospice specializes in end-of-life care that attends to patient’s needs in order to enhance their quality of life. To be eligible for hospice, a doctor must verify a prognosis of six months or less of life, if the patient’s illness runs its natural course. We follow an interdisciplinary team approach, providing care through a team of expert professionals and trained volunteers whose goal is to ease the physical, emotional and spiritual pain and stress of patients and families. Thirteen months of grief support is also available for families. Hospice care is available during the last six months of life through the Medicare Hospice Benefit.
As a Pacific Coast Hospice patient, your preferences and needs guide your care. Your care team works with you, your doctors, and caregivers to treat your whole well-being. We concentrate on helping you live and pass on with as much comfort, peace and dignity as possible. Along the way, they also prepare and support your family members so they can best care for you and honor your wishes.
Our team members care for you during visits wherever you live. In addition to scheduled visits, our nurses are on-call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to answer questions or make an emergency visit. We can help you find around-the-clock caregiver support or other outside resources as needed.
