Compassionate Care in Los Angeles since 1993

Hospice marks a profound shift in goals for care and in goals for life. This change from treatment to supportive comfort care looks different for every every family. That’s why our first step is understanding what's most important to you.

Our Medicare-certified support ensures you have the care you need, especially when facing urgent medical concerns. We work with you and your doctor to address pain and other symptoms. Support includes practical, emotional and spiritual support for everyone affected by a life-limiting illness.

Our commitment to independent accreditation

Trust and professionalism are essential in hospice care—for families and healthcare providers. Independent accreditation signifies a provider's adherence to the Medicare Conditions of Participation (CoPs) and best practices. Compassus is proudly accredited by Community Health Accreditation Partner (CHAP).

Hospice is a Medicare benefit you have earned

Did you know that hospice is fully covered by Medicare? That’s right, you can rest assured that nursing services, medications, supplies and equipment are covered when there is a diagnosis requiring hospice care.

Palliative care

We also offer palliative care services through our Orange County location. Palliative care helps people with serious illness feel better; physically, emotionally and spiritually. It focuses improving quality of life at any stage of an illness.

Precision pain management is an example of care. People deal with pain differently. We listen to patients, family members and doctors to manage pain at the right level at the right time.

Care includes

  • Managing complex pain and other symptoms to your desired level
  • Medical support for shortness of breath
  • Help with fatigue and sleep problems
  • Managing constipation
  • Managing nausea or loss of appetite
  • Reducing anxiety and depression
  • Help navigating the medical system
  • Spiritual care
