When cancer cannot be cured, patients and their families are confronted with many complex end-of-life issues.
Understandably, many patients wish to spend their remaining days in a home-like setting where they can be with their loved ones – quietly and privately – while remaining close to their medical care team.
Set amidst our landscaped grounds, City of Hope’s Village Hospice is just such a place. Here, terminally ill patients and their families receive specialized care in garden apartments that include comfortable living quarters, full kitchens and handicapped accessible bathrooms.
Focused on providing a peaceful environment for patients at the end of life, while preserving the patient’s dignity, the Village is supported by Hospice of Pasadena/Presbyterian Intercommunity Hospital’s hospice nurses and physicians and City of Hope staff.
