What is Palliative Care?

Faith & Hope Palliative Care manages the pain and symptoms of serious illness, and addresses the side-effects of treatment, including the mental and emotional stress it creates. Patients receiving Faith & Hope Palliative Care may or may not be in the terminal phase of illness. They may continue to receive curative treatment (like chemotherapy, radiation, etc.), aggressive therapy/rehabilitation, and home health care services. Faith and Hope Palliative Care also bridges the gap between the patient, their families, and their healthcare providers in order to effectively achieve the patient’s goals.

Most Frequently Asked Questions

What is hospice?

Hospice is a type of care tailored for individuals facing terminal illness with a prognosis of six months or less. We provide patient-centered care that focuses on maintaining and improving quality of life on every level: physical, emotional, interpersonal, and spiritual. Hospice supports the patient and their loved ones. Hospice tailors the care provided to each individual to meet their own special needs.

How much does hospice cost?

Typically, there is no out of pocket cost for hospice care. Medicare and Medi-Cal, and most private insurance plans cover hospice care 100%. However, some insurance plans may require a co-pay. Because we believe everyone facing terminal illness deserves quality hospice care, we won’t turn anyone away based solely on an inability to pay.

Where is hospice care provided?

Hospice used to be a place a dying person went in their final days. Today, however, hospice goes to the patient, wherever they call home: private residence, skilled nursing facility, assisted living, etc.
