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.
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.
