Navigating Serious Illness
Your life is more than your medical problems or your treatment. And yet, when faced with a serious illness, life can become more complicated. Hospice of Santa Cruz County Transitional and Palliative Care Services provide an added layer of support to help you manage the challenges that accompany serious illness. Our professional, caring team is here to help so you can focus on what’s most important to you.
Transitional Care Service
Our home-based Transitional Care Service provides an extra layer of guidance and emotional support. A Transitional Care Liaison meets with you to identify your needs and connect you with community resources that offer additional support. With a focus on improving planning and communication among your care team (your, your family and medical providers), our Transitional Care services are tailored to enhance your overall wellbeing.
Palliative Care Service
Our home-based Palliative Care Service provides a team approach to your care that includes you and your family, your current doctor and care providers, and our Palliative Care Team. Palliative Care Team members specialize in helping you and your family reflect on your goals, ensuring that the care you receive matches your current needs and values. Our Palliative Care Team will never assume to know what kind of care you want. Instead, the team will talk in depth with you and your family to make sure you are guiding the care at every step of the way.
Our Transitional and Palliative Care programs are fluid and flexible based on your care goals at the time. You can move from between the services as your needs and goals of care evolve and change. Ask your doctor about referring you to our program or you can call us at 831-430-3030 to talk to one of our caring professionals.
