ABOUT US

Cherish Hospice is a Medicare / Medical certified hospice agency licensed by the State of California and accredited by Community Health Accreditation Program (CHAP). We provide hospice care to patients and their families in their private homes or assisted living facilities, or in skilled nursing facilities with whom a valid contract is in place. We utilize a specialized form of interdisciplinary health care which is designed to alleviate the physical, emotional, social, and spiritual discomforts of an individual who is experiencing the last phases of life due to the existence of a terminal illness and to provide supportive care to the primary caregiver and the family of the hospice patient. We assist the family or other designated caregiver in making the patient as comfortable as possible and assistance is available around the clock for any change of condition.

Cherish Hospice treats the person and not the disease with attention given to quality rather than length of life. Our professional health care team is specially trained to meet you and your family's needs.
