Senior Care, Hospice Care, and Palliative Care Accommodations in San Diego
MesaView Senior Assisted Living is a family owned and operated independent and assisted living community in La Mesa, California. Our owners have firsthand experience with Alzheimer’s and dementia and know all that goes into making decisions around memory care for a loved one.
We walk alongside families as they traverse the difficult road of Alzheimer’s and have been supporting the greater San Diego community for a decade. We empathize with the difficulties of deciding on a senior living community for loved ones and have laid out below the three most important factors to consider when making this decision.
What is Hospice Care?
Hospice care refers to medical care for people with an incurable illness whose life expectancy is 6 months or less. The focus of care shifts from trying to prolong life to managing symptoms and giving an individual the highest quality of life possible.
Round the Clock Care
Hospice care providers will respond to a patient or caregiver 24/7 if an issue comes up. They are available around the clock. Hospice care is usually provided wherever a person lives. This might include a memory care community, assisted living facility, or a home. This allows the patient to be comfortable in their own environment and with their own belongings.
Hospice Care is Holistic
A team of professionals from multiple disciplines are involved in hospicare care. They are trained to work together and communicate to address the holistic needs of the person with the life-limiting illness. Hospice care is centered on that person and their particular end of life goals. The hospice care team addresses psychosocial, physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of the patient.
Paying for Hospice Care
In terms of insurance and payment for hospice care, it is considered a Medicare benefit. This means that anyone enrolled in Medicare should have access to hospice care. It is also covered in almost every state by Medicaid. Most private health insurance companies also cover hospice care. It is important to note, however, that different insurance companies offer varying levels of hospice care.
