Support Scripps Home-Based Care
Scripps home-based services deliver compassionate, responsive care to patients in their homes or skilled nursing facilities. Whether for recovery and physical therapy after a knee replacement, or help managing a serious chronic condition, our services keep our most vulnerable patients out of the hospital and cared for in familiar surroundings.
Make every moment matter
Home-based care includes palliative care and hospice. Palliative care is provided to patients who require specialized medical care for serious illnesses and may be undergoing curative treatment. Palliative care is often synonymous with pain management, but employs a team of clinicians and specialists to help patients and their families set and achieve their wants and needs for care and well-being.
Hospice is devoted to the care and comfort of patients who have made the decision to manage their pain and physical symptoms, but no longer seek curative treatments. Our commitment to care for our patients now follows them through to end-of-life.
