Kaiser Permanente exists to provide high-quality, affordable health care services and to improve the health of our members and the communities we serve.
Hospice is provided where you live, whether it is a house, an apartment, assisted living, a nursing facility, or another place. Hospice is also about Kaiser Permanente providing supportive services to patients and caregivers. By focusing on comfort and quality of life, hospice seeks to meet patients’ medical, spiritual, social, and emotional needs.
For many people, quality of life is being able to be at home during their last stage of life. With its focus on quality of life and comfort care, hospice makes it more likely that patients can remain in their home at the end of their lives.

i'm a caregiver... i've experienced taking care of a hospice whom i showed my best and love... and that patient made me realize changes that i had since he passed away... i want to help those who are suffering and whose lives are numbered..
