Hospice Care is designed to meet the needs of patients facing life-limiting illnesses.
Arbor Vitae Hospice accepts Medicare, Medi-Cal, IEHP, and most private insurances.
Our Hospice Physician (or Medical Director) will provide regular home visits. He will certify your terminal illness and manage your care upon your eligibility for hospice services. Accessible 24/7 for any medical needs.
Clinical staff makes regular scheduled visits to patients to provide palliative and comfort care. It includes complete spectrum of skilled nursing care. On-call nursing services is available 24/7.
Hospice Aides assist with the personal care of patients, including bathing, toileting, peri care, oral and hair care, meal preparations and light housekeeping among many other things.
Social workers provide emotional support for patient and family, counseling in end-of-life issues, and help with advance directives. Social workers provide assistance with practical and financial concerns as well as emotional support. Social Workers also provide assistance with funeral planning and assistance with legal issues.
Chaplains provide non-denominational spiritual support to patients and families, and assist with memorial services, funeral arrangements, counseling and bereavement follow-up. Arbor Vitae Hospice Care, Inc. values the diverse spiritual needs of those we care for.
Our support does not end with the patient’s death. We know that the stress of dealing with a terminal illness, followed by the loss of the loved one, can be devastating. In order to help the family deal with the emotional impact of the death, we provide bereavement care for as long as a year.
