There are countless hospices in San Fernando Valley, but Pleasantville Hospice is a leader in the industry, providing consistently compassionate and optimal patient care. We utilize various methods of healing and medication to ensure those living with a terminal illness are as comfortable as possible. Our team also hopes to relieve some of the pressure that is placed on the family and friends of patients who feel protective over their loved ones and at times, helpless.
With the vast amount of Hospices growing in the Los Angeles County, families/patients may ask themselves, why this hospice? How are they different from any other hospice? What will they do differently?
Pleasantville Hospice provides constant care with registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, medical social workers and certifies home health aides. They all work with physicians to better determine levels of treatment and assistance necessary to maintain the patient’s comfort. We develop a care plan based on their recommendations and adjust it according to the needs of a patient and their loved ones.
