Your unique lifestyle. Your unique care. Hospice in San Francisco
What is hospice care?
Many people think hospice is a place. Hospice is not a place. Hospice is unique care that comforts and supports patients and their families when a life-limiting illness no longer responds to cure-oriented treatments. VITAS Innovative Hospice Care of San Francisco and the Bay Area provides hospice care wherever the patient calls home: his or her own home or apartment, nursing home, assisted living community, etc.
The goal of VITAS hospice care in San Francisco and the Bay Area
Hospice care treats symptoms, not causes, of terminal illness for people in their last months, weeks and days of life. The goal of hospice care is to make the time for families to celebrate a loved one and enjoy the time that remains.
Hospice care is provided by remarkable teams of professionals specially trained to care for terminally ill patients. VITAS physicians, nurses, social workers, chaplains, bereavement specialists, nurses’ aides and even volunteers make up our Bay Area hospice care teams. They help control pain and discomfort, yet they treat no two patients the same. They help families and loved ones of VITAS’ San Francisco and Bay Area hospice patients cope with the emotional, social and spiritual aspects of death and dying.
Who pays for Bay Area hospice care?
As unique as hospice care is, it is not expensive. Because hospice care is a Medicare benefit, all Medicare/Medicaid beneficiaries are 100 percent covered. Most private insurance plans also cover hospice care. VITAS will work with you or your insurance provider to address any hospice costs. There is no need to defer hospice care due to financial concerns.
For hospice care services as unique as you are wherever you call home—San Jose, East Bay, the Peninsula, Oakland or anywhere in the Bay Area—count on VITAS Innovative Hospice Care of San Francisco and the Bay Area.
