Who Makes up Your Hospice Team?


The primary objective of hospice care is to prioritize the well-being, comfort, and dignity of patients facing life-limiting illnesses and receiving a prognosis indicating a life expectancy of six months or less. Hospice teams from services like our hospice care in Simi Valley, California, typically comprise healthcare professionals and support personnel.

These professionals work together to provide comprehensive and continuous care to individuals with life-limiting illnesses and their families. Hospice care teams are composed of:

  • Hospice Physicians

    A hospice physician or medical director oversees the patient’s medical care and ensures they meet their comfort and symptom management needs.

  • Certified Nursing Assistants

    CNAs are healthcare professionals who specialize in providing patients with daily living assistance. They assist patients with meals, hygiene, mobility, vital sign monitoring, and many more. Our home health aides in California can also help patients with their daily living activities.

  • Social Workers

    Medical social workers help patients considering hospice care services determine the most optimal care plan or action plan to meet their unique needs and specific requirements.
