Los Angeles Aid in Dying Care
Allowing Your Loved Ones to Pass with Dignity
We at Mid Valley Hospice aim to provide as much comfort and dignity in the lives of our patients. We also know, that there may come a time when a person’s suffering is so severe or unbearable that medication will be ineffective. We therefore support the implementation of California’s End of Life Option Act as it gives qualified patients an opportunity to obtain a prescription for the End of Life medication. We fully embrace the act and pass no judgment to those who seek it.
We commonly provide Aid in Dying care for those suffering from:
- End-stage heart and lung disease
- Kidney disease
- ALS and other neurological diseases
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Other life-limiting diseases
Aid in Dying care is not about giving up hope. It is about providing comfort and support for both patients and families. Our interdisciplinary team includes on-call doctors, registered nurses, volunteers, social workers, certified hospice aides, bereavement counselors, and other professionals who are ready to assist your loved one and your entire family. We meet regularly to ensure our plan of care is still appropriate for each and every patient we serve.
Our Medical Director, Dr. Damon Raskin, has been featured on Dr. Gluss's weekly radio broadcast Engaging Minds to discuss California's End of Life Option Act.
