We simply believe, based on our own experiences with hospice, that we can deliver a superior model of care driven by what people desire most often—more care in the home. In creating a model of care driven by experience and not revenue, we are leading the movement of returning hospice care from big business to its roots founded in community health care. In doing this, Cabrillo is able to deliver world-class service to those we serve; we call this “The Cabrillo Commitment.”
DAVID E. SPENCER, CEO
Cabrillo Hospice was created to serve; it’s as simple as that.
We exist to be more than just health care. We believe that fostering a relationship with each patient and family, which is reflective of their life’s journey, is the key to not only the best care but actively creates the platform for the Cabrillo team to be the most impactful.
Creating a culture in an organization that is driven by more than just bottom-line results, we focus on our professionals, structuring a pathway of development for each of them. Simply put, we choose to invest in our most precious resource, the Cabrillo team.
There is room in our world for better care and better relationships. We believe we can change the world, and through service, that is exactly what we aim to do.
Our care management team is led by one of the best teams in hospice care. The care of each person is discussed and comprehensively reviewed with our medical director as part of a whole-person approach to care. This approach includes attention to mind, body, and soul, and the unique needs that may arise during this time of transition.
Medication management is a key component of the care of those entrusted to us. In conjunction with the family and attending physician, medications are reviewed for efficacy, and adjustments may be suggested during this review. Decisions to add or remove medications always includes the person we are caring for and the family as appropriate.
Hospice care isn't just about physical comfort. Spiritual counselors are a key component in our treatment team's efforts to address comfort in a multifaceted approach. These nondenominational spiritual counselors focus on bringing meaning, comfort, and hope. Our approach to spiritual care includes any beliefs, practices, and relationships that help those we care for find meaning.
Each person we care for is assigned a social worker. A social worker is a professional who advocates for the overall well-being of those we care for. In doing so, the social worker is instrumental in in helping families navigate the emotional and practical challenges that arise during the end-of-life journey.
Hospice care doesn’t fit the normal 9–5 schedule; when things go wrong, it’s often in the middle of the night. Hospice clinical professionals are available to respond 24 hours a day in order to meet the needs of those we care for. Whether at two in the afternoon or two in the morning, a licensed nurse is ready to assist you 365 days a year.
There are times when those we care for need a little more assistance in emergency situations. One of the ways we meet the changing needs of those we care for is by utilizing our team in these times of crisis. In these acute situations, our team may stay with a patient for an extended period of time, until the acute symptoms are better controlled and managed.
