One of our sisters works as a hospice chaplain with Providence Trinity Care Hospice. The hospice team consists of nurses, social workers, home health aids, chaplains, volunteers and a medical director. She ministers to families of various cultures and religions in their own homes in San Pedro and the surrounding areas.
A home death is not easy and the families are able to journey with their loved one to the final moment. If families are too overwhelmed, the patient can be placed in a nursing home where hospice care can continue to assist patients and families.
