Burbank, CA – Journey Palliative and Hospice is dedicated to providing exceptional comfort and care to patients as they navigate their final stages of life. With a team of highly trained and certified health professionals, caregivers, and companions, the center focuses on treating the patient with compassion, love, and unwavering support, rather than solely focusing on the disease. Their services aim to alleviate the physical, emotional, and spiritual burdens faced by both patients and their families.
Located in Burbank, the hospice care center is committed to addressing the comprehensive needs of patients. Their portfolio of services includes in-home care, palliative care, respite care, and wound care. Home health aides are available to provide assistance with daily tasks such as grooming and bathing, visiting the patient multiple times a week. Additionally, their multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals offers specialized pain management, physical therapy, and more. These treatments and therapies effectively address symptoms commonly experienced during the end of life, including inflammation, stiffness, acute pain, and discomfort.
Understanding the importance of companionship and emotional support, the center also provides volunteer companions who spend valuable time with the patients. These companions not only provide companionship but also contribute to the patient’s care plan based on their observations and the individual needs of the patient.
Journey Palliative and Hospice specializes in providing compassionate hospice care for patients facing a life expectancy of less than six months due to terminal illness or other health complications. The center takes a personalized approach to care, addressing the unique needs of each patient, and even extending care beyond the initial six-month period if necessary. The center’s primary concern is offering the patient dignity while they take their final steps. They provide as much in-home care as possible to ensure that families can remain by their loved one’s side for as much time as possible. Their services are covered by Medicare, including in-patient, respite, continuous, and routine home care.
Sharing their experience with the hospice care provider, a happy client said, “My sister was recommended for hospice care. Journey Palliative and Hospice seamlessly arranged her medical transportation and brought my sister home. By the time we arrived at my sister’s place they had sent over a hospital bed along with everything my sister needed for her comfort. A health aide stopped by twice a week to bathe my sister and keep her clean. In the end, when the time came, our nurse was with us the whole night. It brings me tremendous peace to know that my sister went peacefully, in her own home as she had requested.”
Besides hospice care, the center offers bereavement services, including grief counseling, spiritual guidance, and support groups. In grief counseling, they help the patient and the family process the grief together during the final steps of life. They host memorial services where families commemorate their loved ones’ memories.
