Routine Home Care

As a Hospice Care in Los Angeles, California, St. Liz Hospice believes that when treating a patient with a life-limiting illness, there is no place like home. Wherever home is for you, be it your private residence, a Board and Care Facility, Assisted Living Facility, or a Skilled Nursing Facility, we will be there for the patient. St. Liz Hospice staff are seasoned professionals who can provide comfort, support, and care when you need it most. Our goal is to make sure that for the remaining days of the patients, they should have the dignity and quality of life that they deserve. Our hospice team will make sure that our patients will have peace of mind and confidence knowing that their remaining days will be moments of building memories together with their loved ones.

Depending on the patient’s needs, our physicians and nurse practitioners can also make house calls, who are working closely with your hospice team of nurses, social workers, home health aides, chaplains, spiritual care coordinators, and volunteers to make sure that your needs are met. Once admitted to our hospice program, a Plan of Care is developed, identifying the intervention needed by the patient. The goal of the hospice Plan of Care is to provide the best possible level of care in the most appropriate setting for the patient’s current clinical condition.

General In-Patient Care

If a patient opts to stay in a Skilled Nursing Facility, there is a level of care called General Inpatient Care (GIP). Whenever we assess a patient in a Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) and determine that there are existing conditions that would warrant a higher level of care, we will put the patient under GIP Care. This means additional support, on top of the services we provide, is required from the SNF, i.e., there should be a 24/7 Registered Nurse (RN) monitoring the patient who is ready to provide assistance and support as the need arises.

However, there are certain rules and guidelines that Medicare has established for hospice providers to follow because not all patients qualify for this level of care. To know more about the details of this service, please give us a call so that we can explain to you thoroughly the criteria required.

Continuous Care

For hospice care at the patient’s private residence, Board, and Care or Assisted Living facilities, there is a level of care called Continuous Care (CC). This is a level of care where we send a skilled nurse to the patient’s home to do bedside nursing. This level of care is usually triggered by a call from a caregiver regarding the patient’s current condition. Clinical conditions like agitation, anxiety, uncontrolled pain, etc., are conditions that meet Medicare criteria for CC.

Just like GIP Care, not all patients qualify for this level of care. For more details regarding this type of service, please give us a call and we’ll be glad to answer all your questions.

Respite Care

As much as possible, we would like to take care of our loved ones who are ill. However, there will be situations where the caregivers will be needing care themselves. Caring for a loved one with a life-limiting illness can be difficult on many levels, both physically and emotionally, which can be overwhelming for the caregiver. It is in this situation that Respite Care may come into play.

Respite Care allows the caregiver to enjoy a short break or take needed time off to handle other matters. By advising us beforehand, we will find an appropriate place (usually a skilled nursing facility) for the patient to stay for a maximum period of five days. The caregiver can be confident that their loved one’s care is not compromised.

Facilities that St. Liz Hospice recommends for Respite Care are those that have a reputation in the community for providing quality services. We make sure that we have long-standing relationships and experiences working with them in taking care of hospice patients.

St. Liz Hospice takes a holistic approach to patient care, meaning we care for the patient and the family as well. We are here to assist in bringing comfort and care to all people involved. Simply discuss your needs with your hospice team, and they can assist you in making the appropriate arrangements.

Bereavement Services

Whenever we lose someone we love (like death), we usually go through a certain process called “Grief.” St. Liz Hospice understands that grief is one of life’s most difficult and painful experiences. There is no such thing as a structured approach to managing grief. But we know very well that grieving is a necessary part of life. And this is the process that makes us human, experiencing reactions from sadness to anger, from numbness to pain, from guilt to fear.

Our experienced Social Workers, Chaplains, and Grief counselors can help family members go through the grief process. It is in this area where we come in strong, for our organization is ready to support family members every step of the way until recovery. At St. Liz Hospice, support can come in many forms, from phone conversations, group meetings, or individual counseling. Our Grief Care team is available to offer a shoulder to cry on, a hand to hold, a heart willing to listen to you, or even provide resource assistance in the next steps. Always put into your heart that St. Liz Hospice exists to help and support you all the way.

  • Individual Grief Counseling
  • Grief Care for Children and Teens
  • Grief Care Support Groups
