During these uncertain times, how can we help?

For over 35 years, UC Davis Hospice Program provides care for terminally ill patients. It is not a place, but rather an approach to health care emphasizing symptom management while helping patients and families to cope with psychosocial and spiritual issues which accompany the dying process.
Hospice care is provided by physician-directed teams of nurses, social workers, home health aides, chaplains, therapists, volunteers, and bereavement coordinators who are sensitive to the local population's cultural and lifestyle diversity. Volunteers become an important part of the team, with the ability to attend rounds and care for patients as well as their families.
