Charitable Care

Charitable Care

Charitable Care is funded through donations from bereaved families, community members and grants received through charitable foundations and other government agencies.

A few examples of the free care provided to our patients and their families are:

  • Safe, reliable medical transportation for a 93-year-old patient who lives alone with no family or loved ones in the area to take him to and from his surgical appointment.
  • Grocery gift card for family of five because the father, a 37-year-old cancer patient, is the sole provider for his family and can no longer work.
  • Window unit air-conditioner provided for a patient recovering from cancer surgery at home during the hot summer months.
  • Purchase of a portable wheelchair ramp for a patient who requires a motorized wheelchair but has no way of getting it in and out of her home.
  • In-home visit with a registered dietician for a patient with newly diagnosed diabetes, to educate the patient on food preparation, portion control and food shopping skills.
  • Lifeline monitoring for patients, who live independently, but need a direct line to emergency services should a situation arise.
  • Provide a gasoline card for the family of a terminally ill child who needs to travel to Children’s Hospital, Los Angeles, for medical treatment several times per week.
  • Respite care for family of a terminally ill patient whose round-the-clock caregiving has exhausted the spouse. Respite care offers skilled nursing in a safe and secure licensed facility and allows the caregiver some time off to recharge.
