Our mission is to support patients and loved ones with exceptional care, compassion, and dignity.
Below you will find information on the Hope Hospice COVID-19 response. We will maintain this webpage with up-to-date details regarding our operations and services.
First and foremost, our hospice services are available. Healthcare professionals with a referral may contact our admissions department 24 hours a day at (925) 829-8770.
The safety of our staff and patients is of utmost importance, and we are closely monitoring instructions from local and federal public health resources. We are abiding by COVID-19 infection-control guidelines established by the Centers for Disease Control. Following is information on how our various services are impacted.
Hope Hospice is accepting patient referrals during the COVID-19 pandemic crisis. We are taking extra precautions to screen and evaluate each case individually. Our professional staff use all personal protective equipment as determined by clinical assessment and CDC guidelines for every patient and family encounter. Our policy requires every employee to practice responsible self-monitoring and reporting of any signs and symptoms to our infection-control team. Our patient-facing clinical staff are regularly tested for COVID-19. Our quality and infection-control process is followed rigorously to protect our patients, their families and caregivers, and our own staff. Our goal is to provide safe, high-quality patient care.

Hope Hospice continues to provide complimentary counseling to our hospice clients and to the public residing in our service area. Our support groups are currently meeting online via Zoom. View support group options here.
Hope Hospice has implemented some temporary changes to our grief support services for youth. At this time, our program is being offered via Zoom to teens only. Video conference in a group setting is not an ideal format for younger children; therefore, individual sessions are provided for children at this time. Learn more here.
Our face-to-face group classes are suspended for the time being, and our curriculum is now presented live over Zoom. Click the link below for more details and to register.
Patient visits by our homecare volunteers are temporarily suspended. We are trying to fill this gap with phone calls and letter writing to stay connected to our patients and their loved ones. Our compassionate volunteers provide much-needed comfort and emotional support and we are forever grateful for their continued dedication. People interested in becoming a Hope Hospice volunteer can still connect with our program management by email to learn about future opportunities.

We have been touched by the initial response from our community asking how they can help during this crisis. Here are two critical ways:
Hope Hospice has an urgent clinical need for disposable isolation gowns and N95 face masks to help protect our healthcare workers as they perform their vital functions serving our patients and families during this public health crisis.
These items are in very short supply due to high demand across the medical community, so we are putting the call out to our supporters, vendors, and others to help us acquire these materials.
If you know of a source or have any of these items you would like to donate, please email us or call our office: (925) 829-8770. You may ship items to us directly at: 6377 Clark Avenue, Suite 100, Dublin CA 94568.
Due to social distancing and shelter-in-place orders, Hope Hospice has had to cancel or reschedule important fundraising events, including our popular Hike for Hope. The event raises critical support for our patient care, grief support, and community education programs on which so many families depend.
