Westlake Village includes palliative care in order to relieve suffering in patients and to provide comfort. Palliative Care is important and focuses solely on relieving symptoms in patients. Unlike Palliative Care, Hospice adds a strong focus to the patient’s emotional, social, and spiritual well-being, while also providing assistance with the patient’s day-to-day life. Although Palliative Care is an aspect of Hospice, Westlake Village Hospice is more than simply palliative care.

We truly care about our patients and their family and we strive to create a comforting, supportive environment. Accessibility is important to us and if you have Medicare, then Medicare will pay your hospice provider for your care. Medicare will cover any cost related to your terminal illness without a deductible. However, Westlake Village Hospice also accepts many insurance providers, a more detailed list of providers can be found on our insurance page. If you have questions regarding Medicare or insurance we are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to discuss your options.
