Hospice offers comfort to patients and their families by reducing the stress, pain and other symptoms associated with a serious illness. Hospice care is all about helping people live as comfortably and pain free as possible when life expectancy is limited.
Routine home care includes regularly scheduled visits to address the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of hospice patients and their caregivers. The hospice team travels to the patient’s home, whether that is a traditional residence, nursing home, assisted living facility, or anywhere the patient calls home.
Symptoms that may require continuous home care include Severe Pain, Terminal Agitation/Restlessness, Drastic Change of Condition, Persistent Nausea and Vomiting, Respiratory Distress, and many other symptoms that may arise.
General Inpatient Care is used when symptoms cannot be managed at home or in an alternative setting. General Inpatient Care is provided in a skilled nursing facility. Patients can be temporarily transferred to a skilled nursing facility temporarily and until symptoms improve. Hospice care covers transport to and from the facility as well as room and board charges while the patient is in General Inpatient Care.
Respite care provides short-term relief for primary caregivers. It can be arranged for just an afternoon or for several days or weeks. Care can be provided at home, in a healthcare facility, or at an adult day care center.

Hospice Service is provided wherever a patient calls home. That can be a traditional residence, nursing home, assisted living facility, or anywhere the patient calls home.
Health care providers may refer patients to Hospice Care. By Law, healthcare professionals must certify that patients meet guidelines to be eligible for a referral to a hospice provider. There are some basic medical criteria a person must meet to qualify for hospice services. These include having a life-limiting or terminal illness with a prognosis of 6 months or less, no longer seeking preventative or aggressive treatment for the illness, and genuinely wants hospice care.
Hospice of Grace is based out of Arcadia, California and serves all of Los Angeles County and surrounding areas.
