South Coast Hospice & Palliative Care Services, Inc.

Detailed Information

At South Coast Hospice and Palliative Care Services, we know it is not easy to talk about death, but our reluctance may rob us of the end-of-life care we want. Some day we all face our own death, the death of loved ones, and the death of friends and neighbors. Hospice is a professional team specializing in assisting patients and their families to focus on living.

When patients are referred to South Coast Hospice, their health care goals change from cure to comfort as life expectancy may become months versus years. South Coast Hospice provides a physician-directed, nurse/social worker – coordinated, interdisciplinary team approach to personal care. The interdisciplinary team consists of social workers, chaplain, home health aides, trained volunteers, and other disciplines as needed. The interdisciplinary team provides personalized training and counseling services with a caring compassionate attitude. With our approach to care, the patient, caregivers, and family (family unit) receives necessary information in preparing for death. The family unit are then better prepared for the reality of the illness and are able to face the last stages of life more comfortably and confidently.
