Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
To help patients remain at home and in their own communities, surrounded by friends and family, while receiving the highest-quality, most compassionate home-based care possible.

We believe that every moment matters. We believe in compassionate care. Most of all, we believe in dignity and respect for each patient we serve. Maybe that's why so many families believe in us when it comes to choosing a hospice provider.
Hospice affirms the concept of palliative care as an intensive program that enhances comfort and promotes the quality of life for individuals and their famiies. When cure is no longer possible, hospice recognizes that a peaceful and comfortalbe death is an essential goal of health care. Hospice believe that death is an integral part of the life cycle and that intensive palliative care focuses on pain relief, comfort, and enhanced quaoity of life as appropriate goals for the terminaly ill. Hospice also recognizes the potential for growth that often exists within the dying experience for the individual and their family and seeks to protect and nurture this potential.
