Did You Know:

  • Hospice care neither hastens death nor prolongs life — we simply  allow nature to take its course by making everyone as comfortable as possible given the particular circumstances.
  • We are open to people of all faiths and beliefs.
  • Bereavement support and volunteer services are offered to all of our patients and families.
  • Between 110-120 patients and families receive support from the Skirball Hospice team on a daily basis.
  • We provide care for individuals wherever they call home whether in a private home, community home or the Los Angeles Jewish Home.
  • Skirball Hospice works with a variety of payors including Medicare, Medi-Cal and most private insurances. As a not-for-profit agency no one is ever denied service because of inability to pay.
  • Admission to Hospice is voluntary.
