All hospice providers are not the same.
The Elizabeth Hospice, a local independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit hospice leader, has been and continues to be a community resource for hospice care, palliative care and grief support services to children and adults in San Diego County and Southwest Riverside County since 1978.
As a nonprofit hospice, we offer care to everyone in the community; no one in need of services has ever been turned away for financial reasons. We are one of only a few hospice providers in the country to have a dedicated team that cares for children diagnosed with advanced serious or terminal illnesses. Our comprehensive grief support services, which include individual counseling and support groups, are open to all community members, regardless of patient affiliation or how their person died.
The Elizabeth Hospice’s caregivers are trained to support veterans, addressing post-traumatic stress, depression, anxiety, survivor’s guilt, and soul injury. Additionally, our veteran pinning ceremonies honor and thank veterans for their military service.
The clinicians, staff and volunteers of The Elizabeth Hospice pride themselves on high-quality, compassionate care. We earned the Gold Seal of Approval from The Joint Commission, an independent not-for-profit organization that certifies and accredits healthcare institutions across the US. This certification demonstrates our commitment to quality and dedication to excellence.
If you know someone facing the challenges of an advanced serious illness who might benefit from the care and support provided by The Elizabeth Hospice, please encourage them to call 800.797.2050 or visit www.elizabethhospice.org. We’re here to help.
