Hospice is a concept of care that treats the person, not the disease, and emphasizes quality of life, not the duration.
Since 1982, Hospice of Amador and Calaveras has been working to meet the needs of those nearing the end of their lives. Hospice care neither hastens nor postpones death but exists in the hope and belief that through appropriate care, patients with life-limiting illnesses may live their remaining days pain-free and with dignity, and their families may accept and find their own new beginnings.
Hospice of Amador and Calaveras provides the treatment and care necessary for physical, emotional and spiritual well-being, either at home, or in a board-and-care or skilled-nursing facility. The services we offer are covered by most private insurance plans, Medicare and MediCal, but we accept patients regardless of their ability to pay.
