We Are Agape!

It's More Than Just Our Name


Agape is not just our name, it is our philosophy which is an ancient Greek word meaning love.  We apply this philosophy in the treatment of our patients and families who are suffering from a serious illness.

Agape’s goal is to improve the quality-of-life for our patients and their family and allow the patient to live the remainder of their life to the fullest.  Hospice care not only addresses a patient’s physical needs, but it also provides addresses the patient’s emotional, psychological, and spiritual needs as well.

Eligibility for hospice care must be determined by a physician who deems the patient’s life expectancy to be 6 months or less if the terminal illness runs its normal course.

Medical Professionals You Can Trust

Improving Quality of Life

Since 2014, our hospice medical professionals have been providing excellence in end-of-life care to our patients in LA & Orange County California.  We promote and embrace a palliative care approach to individuals diagnosed with a life-limiting illness, as well as supportive services to their loved ones. Hospice and palliative care is a continuum of care with an emphasis on skilled care & pain management, while maintaining the patient at home in their most familiar, comfortable, and least restrictive environment.

 

We Treat Patients With…

Many people mistakenly think hospice will hasten the demise of their loved one.  Our actual goal is to improve quality of life for whatever time remains. If our patients condition improves, the patient at anytime can opt out of hospice, and renew at a later time if needed.

A common phrase Agape hears is, “I wish we knew about hospice sooner.”

Another misconception is that hospice care is only reserved for the final days of life. As long as Hospice care is appropriate, we can provide comfort and relief for months.

What People Say

Testimonials

My mother recently passed, she had always wanted to remain in her home until the end, and with the help of Agape Hospice we were able to make it possible for mom to stay in her own home . We called Agape Hospice on a Friday, and within 30 minutes of our call a social worker came to our house, interviewed us and evaluated mom’s needs and put a plan into place immediately. Within 2 hours a hospital bed, oxygen, and medications were delivered to our house. Within 4 hours a nurse had come to check on mom and to help answer any questions we had. The next day a doctor came to meet and evaluate mom and to assure us that we were doing everything we could. I can’t say enough nice things about Agape’s services and support. My only regret is that we did not call earlier. Thank you for your support and amazing care that you gave my mom and emotional support you gave our family. Sheela and Nancy

I could not have been more pleased with Agape. They were compassionate, professional, and committed to 100% satisfaction. When I needed to get hospice in place quickly, they were able to put together a team over the course of a weekend that took excellent care of all of Mom’s needs. I don’t envy anyone who is in the position of having to arrange hospice care for a loved one, but I can tell you one thing to do for sure: call Agape and let them help you through the process. My family and I are eternally grateful to the entire team.
