Mission Statement

The Agency’s mission is to provide professional and paraprofessional services to clients in their homes assisting them to achieve the highest level of potential in their day-to-day self-care activities. We are committed to providing high quality, multidisciplinary care by professionals who recognize the need for comprehensive assessment of needs from both the client and professional’s point of view.

Description

NorCal Hospice, Inc. provides quality and compassionate care for patients facing life-limiting and terminal illness or injuries by using a combination of expert medical care, emotional, and spiritual support, and pain management. We recognize that each person has the right to pass on with dignity and as painlessly as possible. We also offer support to our patients’ loved ones during this time as well.

While death and dying are unavoidable traumatic events, we at NorCal Hospice, Inc. believe it is more important for our patients to live without pain, and with dignity, respect, and support. That is why, we have assembled a team of health care professionals who will come up with a plan that will assess and manage not only the physical needs of our patients, but their emotional and spiritual needs as well as the needs of their families.

NorCal Hospice, Inc. provides care that is tailored to each patient’s specific health, emotional, and spiritual needs.
