About Avalon Hospice & Palliative Care in San Diego

Hospice has taught us that each journey is uniquely personal. The treatment routes selected, the comfort measures chosen, the care options preferred all specific to the individual.

At Avalon Hospice and Palliative Care San Diego, We provide care and support to our patients and families at a time when people feel most vulnerable and afraid. We help our patients regain their sense of control over their lives and help them preserve their dignity. This is important to them, and it is equally important to us.

Every day is about celebrating the journey of life with patients and their loved ones. We are here to support our patients and caregivers so they don’t feel alone.

  • To maintain a commitment to realistic, cost-effective management, utilizing all available mechanisms for payment, to retain management responsibility for the patient’s care in the utilization of direct and indirect services.
  • To make hospice and the hospice philosophy an accepted part of the health care system and to increase awareness concerning the needs of the dying.
