Hospice care aims to improve the quality of life of people facing a life-threatening illness.

What is Hospice Care

What is In-Home Hospice care?

In-Home hospice care is a service that provides end-of-life care to terminally ill and dying patients. The professional caregivers offer such services care to individuals in a familiar and reassuring environment ideally resembling a home. Patients who enter hospice usually have a life expectancy of six months or less.

Patients should always feel empowered to make their own Hospice care decisions, and having a conversation with your primary care physician about Hospice care can help.

In addition to discussing Hospice care with your doctor, it is also sometimes helpful to discuss it with a trusted therapist, clergy, friends, and family.

    I hired 24/7 caregivers from Justin Villa Care two months ago to care for my aging Mother and could not be happier. The time and attention that I have received from Brenda and her team has been a blessing. They've been checking in … More with us consistently to see how things are going and have responded with each of our questions with professionalism and care. So happy to have found them and would recommend them in a heart beat!

    My mom had a stroke that turned her life upside down from an independent woman to needing help with daily tasks. Justin Villa Care was referred to me by the case manager at the hospital and I’m so thankful she did. They met with our family … More promptly
    and brought in a caregiver who has been super helpful. Thank you Brenda and Doha for all your help.
