What Is Hospice?
For nearly 30 years the Inland Hospice Association has provided reliable, professional & comprehensive care & volunteer support to persons who are critically, chronically or terminally ill, as well as supportive services to the family members and other caregivers of these patients. The skilled team of professionals and trained volunteers work together to offer assistance, comfort and education through a variety of programs including general medical assistance services, general social assistance services, medical equipment loan services, bereavement counseling services and patient caregiver support services.
All of Inland Hospice Association's services are provided free of charge to its clients, their family members and other caregivers.
Inland Hospice Association direct program services are available to persons in the following Eastern Los Angeles County and Western San Bernardino County communities: Pomona, Ontario, Montclair, La Verne, San Dimas, Glendora, Guasti, Diamond Bar, Walnut, Claremont, Chino, Chino Hills, Alta Loma, Upland and Rancho Cucamonga. In addition to direct services to patients in these communities, the Inland Hospice Association makes available the free use of medical equipment to a much larger geographical area through our Home/Healthcare Equipment Loan Program, one of only two such programs operating in Southern California.
Dying need not be an isolating, lonely part of life's journey.
Just as dying affects the whole person, caring for that person affects the entire family. We design a program around the unique and special needs of the patient and family with dignity and respect in mind.
Ideally, hospice care gives the patient an opportunity to experience the highest possible quality of living, and allows patients to give and receive love in a comfortable, familiar environment, surrounded by family and friends.
Life's last days can be a precious time of sharing, caring and bidding farewell. Inland Hospice Association works to enhance the quality of this time for both the patient and family by providing integrated physical, emotional, and spiritual support.
