Providence Hospice Orange County
Providence Hospice Orange County
Our mission is deeply rooted in our core values, established in 1930 by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange: Dignity, Service, Excellence and Justice. We are committed to bringing these values to every aspect of care for patients living with life-limiting illnesses. We embrace a family-centered approach for the physical, emotional and spiritual care of patients. This special form of comfort care is provided to patients in their home, extended care or skilled nursing facility and, at times, in a hospital setting.
If you or a loved one is facing a serious or life-limiting illness, the best time to learn about your options is before you’re faced with a medical crisis.
Palliative Care offers comfort and support earlier in the course of an illness. Hospice brings you and your family high-quality, compassionate care when a cure is not possible.

Did you know that there are several myths about hospice care in the community? Even health care professionals have some misconceptions about what hospice care is and who would benefit from this specialized end-of-life care.
Services provided by our network will be billed to your insurance. We will obtain necessary authorizations from your insurance and physicians to determine home health care coverage eligibility. We will provide you with a financial responsibility letter outlining your insurance benefits and cost specific to the services rendered by our agency. This will help you make an informed decision about your care.
For patients with Medicare, Medi-Cal and or Private Insurance, we will bill your insurance directly. Patient responsibility, identified by your insurance carrier, will be billed to you on a monthly basis. For patients that do not have insurance coverage, we will bill you or your guarantor directly for the services rendered. As the patient, you are ultimately responsible for payment for the services rendered.
We have multilingual clinicians to meet a variety of languages represented in the community we serve. In addition, we provide telephone interpreter services through Pacific Interpreters.
Patient safety and quality care are of paramount concern at Providence Home and Community Care. We have implemented a number of strategies to achieve continuous improvement in this area. Our patient safety officer combats safety challenges by developing safer procedures and educating our staff about these improved methods. In addition, we encourage our patients to participate in our efforts to increase safe practices in their home.
Referrals to hospice come from physicians, hospitals, family members, skilled nursing facilities and residential care facilities. A patient is appropriate for hospice when aggressive treatment has ended and the patient chooses comfort care. The focus of care becomes one of quality of life, including pain and symptom management.
The patient is referred by the physician who oversees his or her care and who is in agreement with the hospice philosophy and life-limiting prognosis. Hospice team members continue to work closely with the physician throughout the course of treatment.
Our admissions team can help answer your questions and determine eligibility. For more information and to make a referral call us today: 800-850-2631.
This resources are designed to provide you and your family with information and resources to assist you along the continuum of care. From how to choose a caregiver to what to do after the death of a loved one, we want you to know that you are not alone. We are here to help.
