About Us

Considered to be the model for quality, compassionate care at the end-of-life, Arcadia Hospice involves a team-oriented approach to expert medical care, pain management, and emotional and spiritual support expressly tailored to the patient's needs and wishes. Support is extended to the patient's loved ones, as well. At the center of Arcadia Hospice is the belief that each of us has the right to die pain-free and with dignity, and that our families will receive the necessary support to allow us to do so. The focus is on caring, not curing and, in most cases, care is provided in the patient's home. Arcadia Hospice also provides care in freestanding hospice facilities, hospitals, and nursing homes and other long-term care facilities. Arcadia Hospice's services are available to patients of any age, religion, race, or illness.

Core Values

Core values are at the HEART of all that we do. We must always measure what we do against the values we hold dear to our organization. These values are:

Honesty
We behave in an honest way so that those most vulnerable in our care can trust what we say and do. Physicians, families and patients as well as the community expect us to have the utmost integrity founded on honesty.

Empathy
Honesty is tempered with empathy. Our patients deserve to have their stories heard with a compassionate ear so they feel cared for as individuals.

Accountablity
In order to be held up as experts in end-of-life care, we maintain a high degree of competence in our skills as caregivers. We must also be good stewards of the resources we have and of the donations that are so generously given to Arcadia by our community.

Respect
All care is based upon the respect we hold for human life not only of our patients and families but also of each other. We value the individual and interact with others in a courteous and loving manner because each human life matters.

Trust
Without trust all else fails. We behave in an honest, consistent, competent manner so that all who come in contact with us can rely on the care we provide.
