Palliative Care Services
What is Palliative Care?
Palliative care gives relief from the symptoms and stress that arise when someone is coping with a serious illness. Palliative care is available even if a person is still receiving curative treatment; it is not necessary to give up your current doctors.
Home-Based Palliative Care with Hospice of Humboldt
While all people with severely life-limiting illness are eligible for palliative care services, there are some limitations based on medical insurance.
As a benefit of Blue Shield or Partnership Health Plan** members, our Comprehensive Care program provides relief of symptoms and stress that accompany a severely life-limiting illness. We serve alongside your primary care provider and specialists to provide person-first support for you and your loved ones within the comfort of your home.
**For those with other insurance providers, like Medicare Part B, we offer Transitional Care. Private pay options are available for Comprehensive Care. Please contact us for more information.
