About Remita Health

Our Purpose, Your Way

Remita Health (Rem-Purpose; ita-Way) was founded on the commonly held belief and vision of its Founders, with well over 50 years of combined health care and hospice expertise. We believe that the end-of-life experience should be one of total dignity and respect for the individual sanctity and quality of life for each patient.

We bring a thoughtful and holistic approach in addressing the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of all concerned. We deeply understand and appreciate the importance of embracing the need for individualized care, and the significance of respecting the wishes of each patient to ensure their final days are as comfortable and pain free as possible.

We also understand the need to provide this care in the comfort of the patient’s home. The Remita Health team of highly skilled health care professionals is dedicated to improving patients’ quality of life, increasing their personal joy, reducing unnecessary costs, and providing peace of mind to all those we have the privilege of serving.

What is Hospice?

GIVING YOU THE COMFORT YOU DESERVE

Hospice offers a comprehensive program of care to patients and families facing a life-threatening illness. It is primarily a concept of care, not a specific place of care.

Hospice emphasizes palliative, rather than curative treatment; quality, rather than quantity of life. The patient and family are both included in the care plan, and emotional, spiritual, and practical support is given based on the patient’s wishes and family’s needs.

FAQ

Hospice is a service provided for people at the end of life. It is designed for comfort, rather than a cure; it provides comprehensive and compassionate care for patients and their families. Hospice is offered in more than 3,000 programs across the country.

Any patient who is diagnosed with a terminal illness is eligible for the hospice palliative care. All U.S. citizens, age 65 and older, are entitled to Medicare coverage for hospice at the end of life.

Hospice care is provided in the patient’s home, wherever the home may be (their home, the home of a relative or a friend, a nursing home, or in the hospital). Some hospices have residential units where hospice is provided, designed for a home-like setting.

Hospice is the only licensed health agency that focuses on end-of-life care. Unlike most home health care providers, hospice recognizes that the patient will not get well and provides comfort and support, rather than a cure.

Hospice care is provided by a team of interdisciplinary caregivers. These professionals and specially trained volunteers attend to a wide range of physical, emotional, and spiritual needs.

Hospice care focuses on the entire family, and educates loved ones about caring for the patient. Hospice care does not end when the patient dies. Bereavement services are provided for family members for up to 13 months after the patient’s death.

Most physicians know about hospice. If your physician wants more information about hospice, it is available from the National Council of Hospice Professionals Physician Section, medical societies, state hospice organizations, or the National Hospice Helpline (1-800-658-8898). In addition, physicians and all others can also obtain information on hospice from the American Cancer Society, the American Association of Retired Persons, and the Social Security Administration. Your physician may also contact us.

Hospice is covered by most major insurers, including, Medicare, Medicaid, Medi-Cal, Blue Cross, Blue Shield, HMO, and other private insurers. This includes medical equipment and illness-related medications. When insurance does not cover hospice care, Remita Health offers many services regardless of the ability to pay.

The patient and family should feel free to discuss hospice care at any time with their physician, other health care professionals, clergy, or friends.

Choosing hospice does not mean that you are giving up hope. It means that you have opted for treatments that will help manage various medical symptoms. Hospice allows you to feel comfortable and provides support in order for you to have control over your life.

Our name draws its inspiration from the Latin words for Purpose and Way, to indicate our purpose of delivering care—your way.
