What is Hospice?
Hospice care in Pasadena 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 in Pasadena 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.

Hospice At Home
Once we receive the life-changing news of having a terminal illness, all we want to do is to spend the rest of our days being with our family members, and there is no other place to be but home.
Why Hospice At Home?
We believe that affording hospice care is about giving the patient the hope of a quality, dignified, and pain-free life despite his illness. It is not really about where it will be given, it is about the care plan we provide and support we extend to the patient and to the family members. So if a patient prefers receiving hospice care at home, then he will receive hospice care where he wants.
How Hospice At Home Works?
Hospice at home in Pasadena works almost the same with being in a hospice facility where an inter-disciplinary team takes care of the patient’s physical concerns via pain management, and supports the emotional, spiritual, and even financial needs of the patient and the family.
Who Pays for Hospice Care?
To begin with, availing of hospice care is relatively cheaper than being cared for in hospitals and in other assisted-living facilities in Pasadena because there is no need of expensive high-end technologies, therapies, and curative medicines. The families and hospice volunteers also provides most of the care to some patients.
Hospice care in Pasadena is paid for by Medicare, Medicaid, private insurance plans, and HMOs. For those who cannot afford hospice care, they are usually given free care out of the donations facilities get from community contributions, memorial donations, and charitable foundations. We also have social workers who can work with you navigate through your resources to help you get the care that you need.
