End-of-Life and Bereavement Support

Despite modern medicine's advances, some patients inevitably lose their battle with cancer. City of Hope believes in helping patients reach the end of their lives with dignity and in as much comfort as possible, while helping families and friends cope with grief and loss.

Child life specialists, spiritual care chaplains and clinical social workers offer end-of-life counseling for patients and bereavement support for caregivers and families. Caring professionals can ensure that families' wishes are understood and honored by helping them create advanced directives. A supportive care nurse on staff specifically helps patients transition from the hospital to hospice.

To speak with a professional regarding end-of-life or bereavement issues, please don't hesitate to call us at 626-218-CARE (2273).
