Mission Statement

Hospice is dedicated to the provision of palliative care to the terminally ill who (1) meet the eligibility requirements and (2) elect to receive this service. This care is aimed at the reduction of physical, psychological, social, and spiritual suffering of the patients and their families before, during and after death. Mission statement; Comfort, Care, Compassion.

Description

Provide physical, psycho-social and spiritual support to patients and families during patient's life. The central Hospice goals are to assist the terminally ill to live out their remaining days with the greatest possible freedom from pain, anxiety; to assist them in maintaining their personal sense of self-worth and the contribution of their quality of life. These goals are accomplished through an interdisciplinary team, which provides nursing, medical, social, and emotional and spiritual support under professional guidance and supervision. At the heart of the program are the volunteers who give their time and love, either directly or indirectly to assist terminally ill patients and their families.

Would you recommend Visiting Nurse Association & Hospice of Southern California?

I’ve been truly blessed in my 50 years of living and I believe we all have a purpose to provide others comfort in their time of need. Whether it be reading the word of GOD, listening, laughing or crying or just to sit quietly with a person. Can provide the passion they’ve possibly never received or had throughout their life. No one knows what hour they shall leave this earth, but everyone shall remember how they lived. If I can make a person feel loved and cared for, then what God has planned for me to do in this life have been fulfilled!
