Yolo Hospice is a non-profit organization that helps those with life-limiting illness fully live the final days of their lives by focusing on the whole person, body-mind-spirit. Providing clinically expert care, delivered by professionals in a spirit of loving service, they emphasize comfort through pain control and sophisticated symptom relief.
Yolo Hospice assigns a team of trained specialists to each patient and their loved ones because hospice is so much more than clinically caring for an ill patient. It takes a team to deliver the complement of care. The Yolo Hospice team for each patient is composed of a registered nurse, social worker, hospice aide, spiritual care counselor, volunteers and bereavement specialists. Each team member, regardless of specialty area, is attentive to the care of the whole person – body, mind and spirit.
For those who qualify for Medicare, and most other insurance, all health care related to the patient’s terminal illness is covered. This typically includes costs related to medical equipment like hospital beds, supplies such as gauze bandages and medications. 24-hour access to nursing support is available. For those without coverage or the ability to pay, Yolo Hospice will still provide you with hospice care.
If you or someone you care about might be helped by hospice, don’t delay getting information. Yolo Hospice will explain options with you by phone, or by sending team members to meet you for an informational discussion. Yolo Hospice will answer your questions and be available as a resource to you. Please call (530) 758-5566 for more information.
Yolo Hospice Bereavement Services assists patients, their loved ones and the community, including adults, adolescents and children who have experienced the death of a loved one. The grief services page of the Yolo Hospice website can provide you details on support groups, workshops and the Barbara Frankel Memorial Library, or you can call (530) 601-5756.
Yolo Hospice has provided hospice and bereavement services to Yolo, Solano, Sutter, Colusa and Sacramento counties since 1979.
