Professional HealthCare at Home Expands Services to Provide Licensed Hospice Care in Northern California
Date:11/2/2009

Professional HealthCare at Home has announced the expansion of its services to include in-home hospice care to families throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.

Walnut Creek, CA (PRWEB) November 2, 2009 -- Professional HealthCare at Home, a leading provider of home nursing, rehabilitation therapy and personal caregiver services in Northern California, has announced the expansion of its services to include in-home hospice care to families throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. The company underwent a detailed licensing survey of its hospice program by the California Department of Public Health, a required process before offering the program to the public. "I am pleased to announce that we passed with flying colors," stated John Griscavage, CEO. "The surveyor did comment that it really helped that our hospice was affiliated with such a high quality home health agency."

The company is now able to accept private insurance hospice patients. "We will be working with the Community Health Accreditation Program over the next several months to earn our Medicare certification," continues Griscavage, "which will allow us to accept Medicare and Medi-Cal patients."

Hospice, or end-of-life care, provides a special form of care for people during their last months of life, when medical treatments cannot cure an illness. Specialists in this type of palliative care are skilled in pain management, hands-on care giving, grief counseling and other support for family members.

Professional HealthCare at Home is a full service agency offering both medical and non-medical home care to families throughout the San Francisco Bay Area for over 20 years, with services now including hospice home care. Its service area includes San Francisco as well as cities throughout Alameda County, Contra Costa County, San Mateo County, Santa Clara County, and Solano County. Its Victorian Home Care division serves Monterey and Santa Cruz Counties, and its Haven HealthCare division serves counties within the Salt Lake City, Utah region. Services include nursing care, physical and occupational therapy, post-hospital rehabilitation, extended nursing care, wound care, home health aides, medical social workers, medication management, senior care and hospice care. Home caregivers and personal care assistants provide help with activities of daily living, eldercare, transportation and companionship. Information is available at Professional HealthCare at Home.
