The mission of the Hospice Agency is to provide a comprehensive quality and interdisciplinary program of care and services to the terminally ill and their families or significant others.

Description:
Hospice affirms life. Hospice exists to provide support for persons in the last phases of incurable disease so that they might live as fully and comfortably as possible.
Patients are referred to hospice when life expectancy is approximately six months. While patients must have a doctor's referral to enter hospice, the patient, family or friends can initiate the process by contacting Kaiser Hospice. Hospice care is a covered benefit under Medicare. Hospice is primarily a care delivered to a person's home. The Medicare benefit covers all services, medications and equipment related to the illness. These include the hospice team, pain control, medical appliances and supplies, continuous care during crisis periods, and bereavement services.
