What is Hospice?

Hospice represents a deliberate shift from aggressive disease management to focus on comfort, or keeping a patient as functional, alert and pain-free as possible.

Care providers including physicians, nurses, physical and occupational therapists, dietitians, counselors, social workers, clergy, home health aids and trained volunteers, help patients live their last days peacefully, with dignity and respect.

Regular visits from professional Hospice staff teach the family how to provide the necessary care and are available 24 hours a day to assist both patient and family with problems of illness. Care is adjusted as needs change and continues on to help family members after the death.

Rideout Hospice is located at 989 Live Oak Blvd., Yuba City. For information about Hospice services call 759-3006 or visit www.frhg.org
