Hospice is comfort care intended to give those with terminal diagnosis’ the best possible quality of life. The goal is to promote a life free of pain and discomfort for the patient, as well as support their loved ones. By utilizing an integrated disciplinary team approach, hospice provides a whole team, for the whole person, for the whole family. Hospice care may be provided at patient’s home, a family member’s home, in a skilled facility, an assisted living, board and care, or the local hospital.
Joint Commission-accredited hospices are the ‘partner of choice’ throughout the care continuum because of their deep abiding commitment to quality end-of-life care. APREVA Hospice is one of the few hospices in San Diego County with this distinct and honorable title. An accreditation from Joint Commission shows dedication to the optimum patient experience, commitment to strong interdisciplinary care management, and a robust patient safety initiative.
