Heart of Hope Asian American Hospice Care PDF Print E-mail

The mission of the non-profit, community-based Heart of Hope Asian American Hospice Care is to provide the highest quality of comprehensive care with physical, emotional, social, and spiritual support to terminally ill Chinese and Asian American patients and to their family members in the South Bay area. The hospice service is provided regardless of the type of health insurance the patients have or their ability to pay. If the patients have no health insurance and are not able to pay, the Hospice will take care of them as charity cases.

HCCN provides the following free services to cancer patients and their families.

National Hotline Telephone Care
Since 2011, HCCN has established a National Hotline Telephone Care program for Chinese cancer patients and caregivers in the US. The program consists of Mandarin, Cantonese, and Taiwanese-speaking volunteers who are trained in empathetic listening and caring skills, and are equipped to be sensitive to the caller’s cultural, language, social, and religious backgrounds. Through compassionate listening and support, these volunteers care for Chinese cancer patients and their family through the difficult time of their cancer journeys to lift their spirit and give them the gift of hope. If you or your friends are in the need of support, please dial 1-888-663-8585 between 9 am and 5 pm (Pacific Time), Monday through Friday, to speak to our hotline volunteers.
