Hospice care is focused on controlling pain and managing symptoms, rather than attempting to cure. Palliative care is for patients who are not yet eligible for hospice care but have serious progressive illness or conditions causing symptoms that are difficult to manage.
Reliance Hospice and Palliative Care is Medicare/Medi-Cal certified and accepts Medicare, Medi-Cal, private insurances, and other forms of reimbursement for services.
Two or more items in any category should generate a hospice referral.
