Hospice By The Bay in Marin County is the premier hospice program for the communities in Marin. When I was the Director of Social Services at a Sub-acute Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) in Marin County Hospice By The Bay was the only agency I would contact to provide confront care services to our patients. The agency has been around since the early 1970's and is the second oldest hospice in the nation, providing a holistic approach to terminal illness and offering supportive services to care providers and love ones. The Hospice By The Bay Team are very professional and compassionate individuals which include; Physician Medical Director, Nursing Staff, Social Workers, Speech Therapist, Physical Therapist, Occupational Therapist, Spiritual Support Counselors, and Home Health Aides. Again, I can't say enough about this agency. I HIGHLY recommend Hospice By The Bay to any family that are searching for comfort care for their love one.

About Hospice By the Bay

Hospice By The Bay is California's first hospice and the second oldest in the nation. We have the experience to provide the highest quality care and comfort to patients of all ages and exceptional support to families and caregivers. Hospice By The Bay puts patients and families at the center of care.

Medicare or insurance covers our comprehensive, personalized care, so families have no out-of-pocket expense for essentials, such as medical equipment or prescriptions. In some locations, care is offered in Spanish and Chinese.

HBTB team members visit regularly to provide hospice care in the home, a nursing or residential facility, or hospital. Nurses are specially trained in end-of-life care. They partner with the patient's physician to increase comfort and quality of life. Nurses arrange for medical equipment, medication and treatment, and are available 24-hours-a-day by phone or for an emergency visit. Social Workers answer questions about HBTB services, insurance, financial and legal issues (including advance care planning), and local resources. Home Health Aides help with personal care, such as bathing and dressing. Trained Volunteers assist with household chores and respite for caregivers. Spiritual Support Counselors offer support in the family's own faith tradition and help with memorial activities. Professional Grief Counselors provide individual and group counseling for family members of all ages.
