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 or family members 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 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. While over 90 percent of our staff is fully vaccinated, any patient-facing clinical staff member who is not vaccinated is 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 here for more details and to register.
Patient visits by our homecare volunteers have resumed as of July 1. We require our homeware volunteers to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and provide appropriate personal protective equipment. People interested in becoming a Hope Hospice volunteer can connect with our program management by email to learn about future opportunities.
